Nights in Rodanthe

Nicholas Sparks book, Nights in Rodanthe, is probably one of my favorite books that he has written. I will say up front, that I am not a big fan of his. They are just pretty elementary to me, and the story lines are predictable. I do read them all, especially if I am reading poolside or somewhere that I know I can't "really" concentrate. I just finished Dear John. It's about as corny as it gets, and becomes very very easy to figure out at the end. That is just soooo boring to me.

I am excited to check out this movie, but also admit, I probably won't like it. I am probably the only person I know that hates the movie to The Notebook. The Notebook movie destroyed an awesome storyline, and I hate it when they do that. They turned a sweet, good girl character into something she wasn't portrayed as in the book itself. They RUINED the love scene. But I am also a big believer in the fact that you can rarely make a movie that's as good as the book. Grisham books turned into movies are just about the only ones I like, but that's probably because he is soooo picky that they not mess up his idea of what his characters are, unlike Sparks. (Like in A Walk to Remember.... that book, and that movie, are NOT alike)

But anyway, I am looking forward to seeing it regardless. It will probably be the quality of a USA movie like most of the Sparks' books movies are, but we'll see.....

I'm excited too. I hate John Grisham movies. They suck. They start at least halfway thru the books. A time to Kill has been the only one that was any good, but the Rainmaker was horrible!!

ha, that's because Grisham books have too much depth to cram into two hours. I do think they realistically portray the stories. Runaway Jury is just like the book, down to a lot of the actual text.

I want to see it, too!

I see a girls night out in our future...

I just got done reading "At First Sight" by Sparks. I was not a fan at ALL. It was so sad and depressing. I loved reading The Notebook. I like the movie (only because I saw the movie first, then read the book.)

After "At First Sight" I refuse to pick up a book of his unless I am desperate. I think he's lost his touch. His first books were good and the newer releases just don't cut it.

Janet Evanovich on the other hand... :D
