Romantic novels by Nicholas Sparks
Without a doubt, this book is one of the most well-known works by Nicholas Sparks, as well as its 2004 cinematographic adaptation. Sparks wrote this endearing love story in 1996. It was the first book he published, and the third book he wrote.
Without a doubt, Nicholas Sparks, at that time, had no idea of the success that this book would have, even to this date.
“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”
– Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook –
Themes like war, Alzheimer’s disease, first love, differing social classes, and more are all part of this magnificent story. You’re going to have a hard time putting this one down – we’re sure about that.
A Walk to Remember
Three years after publishing The Notebook, Nicholas published his second work –another great success. Just like the first, this novel also tells a powerful love story. However, here the biggest themes in this book are kindness, religion, terminal illness, and the personalities of the main characters.
Dear John, one of the most successful books by Nicholas Sparks
Polar opposites, long-distance love, social differences, family conflicts… All of these themes come together in Dear John, one of the most popular books by Nicholas Sparks. And we can say the same about the 2010 film adaptation.
The end of the story, as always, will keep you on tenterhooks. The main character must decide what kind of love he wants to have in his life and which he must leave behind… The love of a woman, or love of country.
While Safe Haven is also considered a romantic novel, the themes in this story are different. Love is still a central idea, but, this time around, it’s about the love between adults, rather than adolescents. What’s more, this novel includes the element of intrigue as a central theme in the story.
This page turner’s main character has a dark secret from her past that she wants to hide at all costs. A combination of feelings and themes to pull you into this story from the first page until the last.
