A Safe Look Back and Nicholas Sparks

Last year, at this time I was attempting to complete the #AtoZChallenge I failed.   I got to L and quit.  I am not sure why, but if I was to guess I would say real life got in the way. 

I was writing about everything - my funny kid, coffee and how I sometimes miss being single.  Oddly enough, my most viewed post of all time came from the #AtoZChallenge - Listable Life and Nicholas Sparks' Movies - #AtoZChallenge.  The post listed my top 5 reasons that I can't stop watching his movies.

Now, I love Nicholas Sparks' books and I love his movies.  But, I don't love that the movies are never as good as the books. Don't get me wrong - they are great as movies but the books are wonderful and the movies lose something in the translation.  Like Safe Harbor. Great as a movie but the adaptation lost how wonderful the father was with this children and the quite strength that radiated from the main character.

I would still watch it again because it is Josh Duhamel for crying out loud and he is in a Nicholas Sparks' movie but I may turn down the sound and read the book while I am watching it.

My wish is that he would write screen plays and write books but not make his books into movies.

Oh, who am I kidding?  I would read and watch whatever that man put out.  I just adore him.

Do you have a favorite from Nicholas Sparks?

Speaking of books... come back tomorrow and join this week's Because Prompts are Fun.  This week's theme is books!
