Safe Haven

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past.

    This review is from: Safe Haven (Kindle Edition)

    This certainly isn’t a traditional sappy love story that Sparks usually writes. Sure it has the love story and it’s set in North Carolina, but he puts in an element of danger. I have read all of his books and I love them all, however I am definitely tired of the “I love you” on the first date that practically occurs in all of his novels. The rest of this novel makes up for that quick love. It truly is impossible to put down. I made the mistake of starting it before bed, figuring I would read a few chapters and go to sleep – Well, I stayed up all night and finished it. They way it’s written is strategic and effective in keeping the reader wanting more (which is why I had to finish it in one night). Sparks has said that this is the next movie adaptation and I’m sure it will work well. There is something for everyone: love story, family life, internal conflicts, danger, and a twist at the end. Well worth the money (the physical book is more $ than the Kindle version – so I don’t know what everyone is complaining about; he’s a best-seller, it came out yesterday – of course it’s not going to be $5!) Overall, I loved it and I don’t regret my purchase at all. I’m just sad I finished it already! Can’t wait for the next one!

    This review is from: Safe Haven (Hardcover)

    When I pick up this sort of book, I don’t expect my world view to be changed, or to become enlightened as if I’d just had a near death experience, what I expect is to safely escape reality and the cares of the world for a little while. Save Haven is just that, a safe haven in the reading experience. I read enough non-fiction to find it very enjoyable to pick up a Nicholas Sparks and leave the cares of the world behind.

    Safe Haven may be a bit predictable, but what makes it stand out for me was delving into the mind of a control freak. Katie Feldman has a secret she’s running from and it’s a big one. She’s found a safe haven in a small South Carolina town where she can just live life on her own terms, safe from fear. Of course it doesn’t last because stories need endings, and too much happiness can ruin a good story like nothing else.

    The hero in this story is a man who does the right thing and loves his children. With only this guy, the story would be pure vanilla. Throw in a ‘bad guy’ who’s good at his job and loves his wife, and you’ve got some swirls of chocolate thrown in that are delicious.

    I like that the main character of the story realizes that the world if full of shadows where things aren’t as simple as they might seem. I won’t give away anything else in the story because I read one review and it spoiled the ending for me.

    Safe Haven is just what you’d expect from Nicholas Sparks, but I think that’s a good thing.

    I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and have read all of his books. I have felt mad, happy, and sad, with some of his books, but they are all amazing. I think this is one of his best. DO NOT peek at the ending of this one. I have a friend that does this and to me it ruins the entire book….any book, but holds true especially for this one. I will not go into the story, as some do on here, because again that can ruin it. You will not be disappointed in Safe Haven. Many conflicts and battles within the characters, and you will most likely relate to at least one of them. Again the ending is awesome. This is one you will remember, I know I will. Sparks just keeps getting better and better.
