Ponovno sem brala knjigo Nicholasa Sparksa. Čeprav me z Beležnico, ene izmed njegovih največjih uspešnic, ni prepričal, me je s knjigo Safe Heaven tako očaral, da želim najti še kakšno podobno. Najboljše v meni, kakršen je slovenski prevod Najboljše v meni je zaenkrat najboljši približek Varnemu zavetju.

I read another book written by Nicholas Sparks. I wasn't impressed with The Notebook, one of his greatest hits. But I'm in love with  Safe Haven and since I have read it I'm looking for another one as good as that one. The Best of Me is for now the most similar to Safe Haven.



Amanda in Dawson sta se kljub različnima družbenima statusoma zaljubila in živela v pravljici. Vse dokler ji Dawson ni pustil oditi, da bi izpopolnila pričakovanja svojih staršev. Sedaj petindvajset let kasneje pa se ponovno srečata in na dan privrejo stara čustva. Le da je tokrat drugače, saj je Amanda poročena, vsakega izmed njiju pa je življenje tudi spremenilo.

Amanda and Dawson fell in love despite their families' standards and for a little while live in a fairytale. But then Dawson let it go, so she could have better life that her parents planned for her. Now they met again … 25 years later, and they discover that they still have feeling for eachother. But know everything is different, Amanda is married, and both of them have changes a lot since they last met.

Zaradi opisa na platnici knjige sem pričakovala predvsem romantično zgodbo v stilu Beležnice, seveda je vsebovala veliko podobnih elementov, ampak se je pa tudi precej razlikovala. In ravno te razlike so jo naredile toliko boljšo.

Because of the summary on the back cover of the book I expected a romantic story similar to the one in The Notebook. There are few similarities but also a lot of differences that make this book so much better.


Glavna lika sta Dawson in Amanda in njuno iskanje sreče v življenju. Ob branju pa se večkrat vprašamo, ali je osebna sreča res najpomembnejša v življenju posameznika?

The main characters are Dawson and Amanda. Both are looking for their happiness in life. While we are reading this book we are asking ourselves if personal happiness is really the most important thing in our life?

Dawson se je rodil družini 'kriminalcev, zločincev in ustrahovalcev'. Zaradi tega se ga ljudje izogibajo, saj v tako majhnem mestu kakor je Oriental, priimek pomeni ogromno. Njegov priimek pa je tudi glavni razlog, da Amandina stroga mati ne odobrava njune najstniške zaljubljenosti. Dawson se zato odloči, da jo bo za njeno dobro zapustil in ji dal priložnost za boljšo prihodnost. V knjigi se to sliši popolnoma razumljivo in precej romantično, ampak v realnosti se kaj takega po mojem ne more zgoditi, saj je družba preveč egoistična.

Dawson was born into a family full of 'criminals, felons and bullies'. That's the main reason for his evasion from other people. Because in a small city like Oriental your surname is everything. Amandas' mother who wants only the best for her daughter doesn't want to see her doughter near him and dislike their relationship from the first moment. Dawson later leaves Amanda for her own good. In a book this is really romantic but in a real world that's not likely to happen. Our society is just not that generous.

Amanda se po njunem razhodu poroči in nadaljuje življenje, vendar jo vsa ta leta nekaj vabi nazaj v Oriental, čeprav Dawsona ni tam. Da pa bi mu vseeno bila bliže obiskuje njegovega prijatelja, ki je bil Dawsonov delodajalec ter stanovanjedajalec.

After they split up Amanda continued with her life, but all this years she is coming back to Oriental even if Dawson isn't there. Instead of visiting him she is going to his friend and employer.

Po njegovi smrti sta tako Amanda in Dawson obveščena in povabljena na pogreb, seveda pa se tukaj stvari tudi zapletejo. Problem pa niso le stara čustva ampak tudi Dawsonova družina, ki se je odločena maščevati.

After his friend death they were notified and asked to come to his funeral. And that's where it all starts. But Dawson doesn't have problems only with his emotions but with his family too, that is seeking for revenge.

Pri Nicholasovih zgodbah mi je všeč romantika, ki se ponavadi konča precej realistično, čeprav pa me to hkrati tudi najbolj razočara. Kljub vsemu pa je knjiga nabita s čustvi in če se boš odločila, da jo prebereš le pripravi robček, ali dva.

I love style of Nicholas's writing, it's so realistic but in the same time I hate him for that. Above all this book is full of emotions and be prepared to use a tissue or two.

Zgodba sicer ni nekaj še ne slišanega, vendar je zelo dobro napisana in si vsekakor zasluži oceno:
The story is not something that has never been written before, but it's really beautifully written, so I rate it with:

OCENA FILMA | MOVIE REVIEW

Takoj, ko sem ugotovila, da je po knjigi posnet film, sem si ga seveda želela ogledati. Sicer sem ga gledala nekaj mesecev po branju knjige, vendar me je vseeno navdušil. Sicer se razlikuje od knjige, ampak še kar je super. In verjemi mi, ko to rečem, saj večino ne maram filmov posnetih po knjigi, še posebaj, če spremenijo zgodbo.

When I found out that there is a movie based on his book I just have to see it. I did watch it a few months later and I can say that it's really good movie. It's different from the book, but it is still awesome. And believe me when I say this because I usually don't like movie adoptions, especially if they changed the original story.

Menim pa, da so izpustili pomemben del knjige, vendar ti ne morem razkriti kaj to je, brez da bi ti uničila zgodbo. Prav tako, pa so film naredili zgolj na romantičnih delih knjige in ostalim dogodkom namenili le malo časa.

I think that a very important part of the book was missing, but of course I can't tell you anything about it, because I don't want to spoil a book. Also, a movie is even more full of romance so there wasn't a lot of scenes about other part of the story.

Kljub vsemu me je film navdušil. Po mojem mnenju je knjiga boljša, vendar če si ogledaš tudi samo film, te bo vseeno navdušil, še posebaj, če rada gledaš romantične filme.

Despite everything I think that movie is amazing. I like story in the book more, but even if you watch only a movie you will still love it, especially if you are sucker for a romance.
