Not a "happily ever after" book!

This struck me as a lovestory without much closure. Left me wanting more. Characters are well developed and it is well written, but this is not your typical "love story" where everyone lives happily ever after. Left me feeling sad. May be a little too close to "real life!"

Typical Sparks

This was a nice, casual listen. This is a typical Nicolas Sparks novel that it a bit predictable. Still I enjoyed visiting Rodanthe and the characters that are relatable, but I didn't really "invest" in their lives. I have not seen the movie so would be curious if I would be more invested in the characters in the film. JoBeth Williams was just a pinch distracting stretching the Southern accent a little further than necessary in my opinion.
