I’m a huge Nicholas Sparks fan. I don’t think I’ve been disappointed with anything he’s written. I think that many would agree with me about that. The very fact that so many of his books make it to the big screen is proof enough for me.
I read Safe Haven in the summer of 2011 and loved it! It’s one of my favorite
’ books, so I was really excited when I heard the movie
was coming out. The hubs and I went to
see it opening weekend, and I was very pleased that it stayed pretty true to
the book. Sparks
Several people who are not familiar with book have asked me about the movie, and this is what I’ve been telling them:
It was really good! Pretty much true to the book. Like the book, the movie was overall clean. One or two cuss words, if that. One love scene, that would be considered mature for younger audiences. No nudity in the love scene, but a few minutes of passion, similar to the love scenes in all of his other movies. Considering the plot of the story, there is also some domestic violence in the film that may be too mature for younger audiences. Basically, it's a classic Nicholas Sparks story, so a good movie to compare it to would be others like the Notebook or Dear John.”
