    One thought on “Safe Haven”

    1. I almost liked this book Almost an added star This is my 4th Sparks book Message in a Bottle 2 stars The Lucky One 1 star Three Weeks With My Brother 1 star.This is the winning book for February 2011 Bestseller Book chosen by The Filipino Group here in I bought this book at regular price I waited for the mass paperback cheaper edition but it is almost a year now since this book came out February just started and I was about to open the thread I am one of the moderators of that group so I grabbed [...]

    2. Opening line As Katie wound her way among the tables, a breeze from the Atlantic rippled through her hair Wow, this is definitely one of the better Sparks books I ve read, I sure hope he keeps going in this darker, less sappy direction with the next book too I picked up SAFE HAVEN during a very busy time in my life and still found it unputdownable Full of twists and turns, mystery and surprise and a HUGE suspense factor throughout Of course we also get the romance nicely done and it again takes [...]

    3. 2.5 rounded upIt s not so much that there is anything bad about this book, it is just that it is boring A very large portion of the story is devoted to describing the day to day life of the characters who live in a small, seaside town What one does as they get up, what they eat, how they cook, the routine conversations between family members, what they buy at the grocery store, which tablecloth to put out etc etc comprises not only most of the book, but each of our own daily lives While familiar [...]

    4. This book, in my opinion, was completely different from any other book I ve read of Sparks And that is a good thing I would classify this book as a romantic suspense, or even a suspense in general There were many instances where my heart was racing, and I couldn t find the strength to put the book down And, as with all of Sparks book, I found myself tearing up in parts But not for the normal mushy gushy reasons Instead, I was crying because of the traumatic events taking place, and the horror I [...]

    5. 3.5 rounded up.People hide the truth because they re afraid My second time reading Safe Haven, the first half was a bit slow We don t know about Katie s past yet, and we simply follow the beginnings of her settling into the small town of Southport and starting a relationship with Alex the local general store owner.As her background is slowly revealed, I began to fear for her That this new life she made for herself could be taken away at any moment The final part of the book is drama filled view [...]

    6. That ending I did not see that coming Ahhhh I m literally speechless and my heart is racing I should start off by saying that I already knew I would love this book before actually reading it I ve been a huge Nicholas Sparks fan since high school Happy to say I loved this and I was captivated from the very beginning I know his writing style can be a bit difficult to get used to, and some people find it boring I do not find it boring at all.Safe Haven follows the life of Katie, as she tries to hid [...]

    7. I ve come to believe that in everyone s life there s one undeniable moment of change A set of circumstances that suddenly alters everything Really enjoyed this one I watched the movie before I read the book and shocking as it is I preferred the movie over the book, just a little bit The characters and plot were well developed throughout the story but there were a few parts that either lacked a bit too much or felt out of place Overall a great read buuut I don t think I d give NS s books a reread [...]

    8. This is a MUST read for anyone in an abusive relationship It will give you the courage needed to escape I have a personal friend who did this exact thing and now her life is much better When I listened to her tell her story it sounded exactly like Safe Haven Nicholas Sparks is a wonderful writer You can see truth in his writing.

    9. I bought this book on a whim All the ladies at my workplace seem to be reading it and I keep overhearing them rave about it It s Nicholas Sparks best book yet When I got up to the register the lady ringing me up said, Ooh, Nicholas Sparks I love his books They re soo good Oh, and look It s going to be a movie Gotta see that one Mind you I had two other books in the pile, not a word about those I didn t have high expectations for this book because it didn t seem like my kind of thing But I figure [...]

    10. This was my first time reading Nicholas Sparks I never even seen any of the movies I must say I am a new fan, for sure This story was truly beautiful I don t know if I can even explain why I loved this book so much The characters are great, the romance is done well, and the conclusion was deeply satisfying I am eager to see the film, now When I think of NS I think gooshy, sappy romance with a hint of sadnessat s what I always hear his books are like This one, though, was a bit different than I e [...]

    11. I hadn t read a Nicholas Sparks book since high school, after my friends insisted I read The Notebook and I didn t like it So I don t know what possessed me to pick this one up, except that upon reading the description, it was supposed to be different than Sparks other work I wanted to give him another try I m not disappointed I did, though this book rated only 2 stars for me.Brief summary is that Katie is a mysterious new woman in town in Southport , who likes to keep to herself She strikes up [...]

    12. 5 starsThe emotions attached to them were like sand castles in the tide, slowly washing out to seaWhat a beautiful, heart wrenching story I loved Katie s strength and Alex s devotion to his kids and the people he cares about Katie s journey kept me glued to the page and seeing her open herself up to Alex and his kids was beautiful I can t really give away too much and I m so glad I haven t seen the movie which I hope to rectify ASAP but you just have to dive in and experience each moment with th [...]

    13. Well I just finished this book and let me just say that I have never been so happy to have puffs tissues in my house My eyes are so swollen from crying its crazy This was defiantly one of the darker books I ve read from sparks However, it still managed to rip me apart and them put me back together again Sorta I always lose a part of myself with a good book I feel this is also the reason why some books stay with me for a while and why these same books stir emotions in me that both amaze me and sc [...]

    14. Small, close knit, picturesque town Check.Good people with good family values Check.A terminal illness or two Check.Long paragraphs devoted to describing the view and the weather Check.Long, serious conversations Reminiscing of sob stories Check Check.Tearjerkers Check.It s undoubtly Nicholas Sparks I d know even if I hadn t heard about the book and found it with covers ripped off and title and author s name missing.But for once and I can t express how much joy I d felt about this Sparks had let [...]

    15. People don t understand why I dislike Nicholas Sparks books Here s what I think I think he wrote a pretty good novel The Notebook out of the gate And then, because he had a fabulous smile and was a man who seemed to understand true romance and could write about it minus the smut, he got assigned to the best PR person in the history of publishing.Sparks is a mediocre writer at best His plots might have a seed of promise, but the writing reads like someone who is taking their first creative writin [...]

    17. There is no doubt that you can rely on Nicholas Sparks to deliver a warm hearted, well written piece of contemporary fiction which combines romance with drama and current community issues In Safe Haven he does not fail to deliver This is an entertaining story, with just the right mix of elements, that engaged this reader from the opening pages.Katie is working hard as a waitress at Ivan s cafe, in coastal Southport, NC, and living in a run down, low rent house She seems very remote and detached [...]

    18. Southport, North Carolina sets the stage for this book Katie is running from a bad relationship right into the arms of Alex, the local store owner who has two adorable kids and is a widower As with most predictable love stories by Mr Sparks the bad relationship catches up to the good one this one ending with a massive firestorm and a unrealistic twist that doesn t quite make the heart strings pull I found this one overly wrought with scenes that would never happen in real life, and the ending ma [...]

    19. This is my 3rd book from Nicholas Sparks, and just by the 3rd book I already know Sparks writing formula The beginning was sort of a drag since I already know what to expect from the way in which the author would set the tone of the story, introduce the characters as to who s the good, the bad, and the one we should watch out for, etc What caught my attention was the latter half part of the book, and the twist at the end The Sixth Sense much In a nutshell, it s a light, familiar and feel good re [...]

    20. I am still one of those people that enjoys Nicholas Sparks books and movies I really prefer to read the book before I watch the movie, so I ve owned the movie since it came out but never watched it This was the first TBR takedown book and I am happy to say this seems to be working well, and now I don t have to unhaul this book.I really enjoyed the story and the characters The story is a typical story for him to write but I still liked it nonetheless, and particularly the letter at the end Not go [...]

    21. OK, I really need to stop reading Nicholas Sparks Everytime I read something by him I think Right That s it I will not waste any time in my precious short life reading his bland, shmaltzy, velveeta cheese like substance novels But then one of the many people and yes, well educated people I know will say Oh, but Kristen, you should read his latest book You ll like this one I fall for it everytime This book, I was told by numerous people was different because it was darker, not as marshmallowy tha [...]

    22. The book is another romantic novel by Nicholas sparks that took place in South Carolina I loved the fact that this book had an element of suspense added to it It was difficult for me to put down this book and it took me less time to finish it than I anticipated I once came home and sat on the couch and stayed there reading every word of the book for three straight hours without noticing the hours that went by I loved the plot, the choices of words over, the characters seemed real to me and convi [...]

    23. Much better than the movie It depicts the story from the wife as well as the husband point of view It provided insight into what she suffered as a wife and endured the painful beatings, how she got away and the measures she took to survive From her husbands point of view she was to blame for him losing control and doing the things he did He could quote scripture well but it never says in the Bible to beat your wife and keep her prisoner in your home He kept such a tight reign that she couldn t l [...]

    24. If you re a Nicholas Sparks fan, you probably already knew what to expect for his newest book, Safe Haven, which was released this past week a love story set in small town North Carolina that will probably make you cry It s definitely a formula, but one that works Why mess with success, right Well, it turns out that this one strays a little bit form the formula, but I still think it counts as a success Part of the variation from the norm are the twists and surprises, but I won t give anything aw [...]

    25. I ve come to believe that in everyone s life, there s one undeniable moment of change, a set of circumstances that suddenly alters everything Since I m in the mood for a movie marathon and I had read this book before I decided to see it on movie And again the movie is much better Although I give the book version 4 stars after watching the movie it earns a lot of additional stars I love the suspense, romance, magic and second shot for love I like Julianne Hough portrayal on the movie The first wi [...]

    26. 4 Safe Heaven StarsI have never read a Nicholas Sparks book before, and this one always had me wondering and wanting to read it I watched the movie as we do But I have to say I like the movie than the book But the book gives us insight into just how unstable Katie Erin s husband really was Having read the book I understand the movie I very much enjoyed the book and the movie, but I think what I love best about the book was Jo and how that whole character was It was sad and heartbreaking but i [...]

    27. I LOVED this book Seriously all the feels I fell in love with all of the characters especially Josh and Kristen I really enjoyed Alex and Katie s relationship, it was so sweet and real I most definitely cried and I really loved the ending I only had one problem I m going to try to say this without spoiling anything I wish the book focused on the present and the relationship between Alex and Katie and not as much on Katie s negative past and a certain other person s point of view Other than that [...]
