    I used to see Mr Nicholas Sparks as a guy who kills off his characters for sport Like every time he writes a new story, I picture him rubbing the palm of his hands against each other while madly grinning and asking Who I am going to kill this time insert evil laugh here Only after reading this particular novel of his did I learn how wrong I was I learned that most of his stories premises are based from his real life experiences or about members of his family and I believe it takes true I used to see Mr Nicholas Sparks as a guy who kills off his characters for sport Like every time he writes a new story, I picture him rubbing the palm of his hands against each other while madly grinning and asking Who I am going to kill this time insert evil laugh here Only after reading this particular novel of his did I learn how wrong I was I learned that most of his stories premises are based from his real life experiences or about members of his family and I believe it takes true courage to share to the world something so painful and so personal I admit I was on full detective mode from page one already guessing which of the wonderful, perfectly kind characters will potentially die but despite that, the story touched my heart unexpectedly It mostly has to do with the main theme of the story a parent s unconditional love for his her child It also helps a lot that there s a cute four year old boy They get me all the time cute little kids in stories Just to be clear, Mr Sparks standard formulaic ingredients are still there Small town setting A simply beautiful female character who turns every man s head in said small town An attractive male character who wears masculine work boots Tragic tone Slow start More than necessary writing details Ahem A love scene or two orAt least one death Heart wrenching scenes dialogues that ll make you spill tears At least I found the perfect excuse to spill tears I have been trying to hold back since my wisdom tooth started growing BUT, I particularly adore the portrayal of the female character, Denise Her strength as a woman and as a mother is just admirable I m sure every girl could pick up a thing or two from her The conclusion is farhopeful and lighter than I expected and if I would recommend anything from the author, I think this would be it

    Mr Sparks, you sure know how to break my heart and burn my tear glands.This book left me in tears from the very first chapter till the end But it s the last two chapters that got me cry like no one could understand what I was going through while crying with the main characters It was so heart breaking The story deals with a single mom, Denise, taking care of her 4 year old son, Kyle, who had some delayed learning disability which the doctors couldn t give a proper diagnosis Then there s volun Mr Sparks, you sure know how to break my heart and burn my tear glands.This book left me in tears from the very first chapter till the end But it s the last two chapters that got me cry like no one could understand what I was going through while crying with the main characters It was so heart breaking The story deals with a single mom, Denise, taking care of her 4 year old son, Kyle, who had some delayed learning disability which the doctors couldn t give a proper diagnosis Then there s volunteer fireman Taylor McAden who was putting himself in dangerous situations to save everyone he could.Both Denise and Taylor had something they could not share with just anyone.A small town story, a story of how different people have a fight going on everyday, a heart warming and a heartbreaking slow burn romance that left me baffled in the end.I appreciate the whole family vibes, learning disability representation and how it was handled really well, PTSD, solid childhood friendship between Taylor and Mitch, Taylor s mother Judy being representative of a strong woman, small town vibes, deaths and grief being handled incredibly well.The characters were very realistic and the story somehow felt so real to me At times, I felt like the main characters were testing my patience but everything ended well well explained It will stay as a memorable read for me

    This is an emotional,heartwarming story of three impaired individuals starting with Denise Holden, a single mother who is struggling to raise her four year old son KYLE, a cute boy who suffers with delayed speech disorder an auditory processing syndrome And Taylor Mc Aden the flawed hero,dealing with his demons ,the volunteer firefighter who rescued Denise and Kyle in a heavy rain storm,when their car crashed on the edge of a swamp.So far,I think this is the best novel I ve read of Nicholas Sp This is an emotional,heartwarming story of three impaired individuals starting with Denise Holden, a single mother who is struggling to raise her four year old son KYLE, a cute boy who suffers with delayed speech disorder an auditory processing syndrome And Taylor Mc Aden the flawed hero,dealing with his demons ,the volunteer firefighter who rescued Denise and Kyle in a heavy rain storm,when their car crashed on the edge of a swamp.So far,I think this is the best novel I ve read of Nicholas Sparks,because this book revolved around a little boy who needed special attention which the author had brilliantly crafted.He formulated a well planned mother and son relationship that deeply touched my heart.He also did a great job portraying a mother s determination and dedication to help her son and for that,I gave this book a 5 star rating.I should ve deducted a star because I still didn t like the idea style of the author taking away one important character in the story,but what can I do But then,Sparks captured the essence of love,devotion and sacrifices in this book.Not to mention the fabulous secondary characters,particularly Mitch,Melissa,and Judy McAden So I guess,these facts about this book is worth for the rating I gave

    Opening LineWhy had this happened Why, of all the children was Kyle the one I first read THE RESCUE in 2002 and enjoyed it just as much this time with it s rediscovery As soon as I opened the first page I was lost, reading continuously for the next 24 hours Thinking to myself, damn that Nicholas Sparks he s done it again, sucking me right back into one of the best love stories I ve ever read Due to a horrific childhood trauma volunteer firefighter Taylor McAden is driven to take disturb Opening LineWhy had this happened Why, of all the children was Kyle the one I first read THE RESCUE in 2002 and enjoyed it just as much this time with it s rediscovery As soon as I opened the first page I was lost, reading continuously for the next 24 hours Thinking to myself, damn that Nicholas Sparks he s done it again, sucking me right back into one of the best love stories I ve ever read Due to a horrific childhood trauma volunteer firefighter Taylor McAden is driven to take disturbing heroic risks while on the job, trying to somehow put his world right He has few friends and all of his past relationships have resulted from rescuing troubled women in one way or another All of whom he inevitably leaves as soon as they wantfrom him then he can give It seems that there s just one leap Taylor can t make that of allowing himself to fall in love Denise Holden is a single mother of a handicapped child Due to a lack of finances she has been forced to move back to her mother s hometown and live in the inherited home At the moment she s barely scraping by, her son Kyle taking up most of her time, energy and resources Love is the last thing on Denise s mind as she drives home from her job at the local diner As fate would have it though a terrible storm hit s the small southern town that night, contriving to bring our couple together As the storm rages Denise crashes her car and upon regaining consciousness finds herself staring into the handsome face of risk taker extraordinaire Taylor Before she can acknowledge him as her potential life partner though panic takes over as she realizes that her son is no longer in the car and is feared to be lost in the nearby swamp I won t be giving anything away by telling you that Taylor rescues both Denise and her son and together they forge into a relationship But as wonderful as the relationship seems in the beginning it doesn t take long for the cracks to show and the harder Denise tries to help Taylor thehe pulls away Shutting down emotionally and taking greater and greater risks with the fire department For a small town they sure have a lot of fires As with every Nicholas Sparks novel we are never guaranteed a HEA which aids in a degree of tension throughout this story For me the relationship and its sudden decline is so well written that it seemed a page from my own past, tugging at my heart with its familiarity Taylor is a mystery throughout and the whys of this aren t revealed until the very end THE RESCUE contains some fabulous secondary characters and you will fall in love with every one of them It s also full of action, suspense and melodrama There were a couple of moments when I actually gasped out loud, unbelieving as to what I d just read Have some Kleenex handy, this is great yet as always with Sparks bittersweet love story Cheers

    Even though I didn t finish this awful book, I find that over a week later I m still FURIOUS about this The heroine is a penniless single mom who works the night shift as a waitress and during the day takes care of her disabled 3 year old The first time the hero comes to her house on an unplanned visit he notes that even though the place is old, it s spotless From this, of course, we re supposed to infer that the heroine is a hard worker, has high moral fiber, and is good wife material.BULLS Even though I didn t finish this awful book, I find that over a week later I m still FURIOUS about this The heroine is a penniless single mom who works the night shift as a waitress and during the day takes care of her disabled 3 year old The first time the hero comes to her house on an unplanned visit he notes that even though the place is old, it s spotless From this, of course, we re supposed to infer that the heroine is a hard worker, has high moral fiber, and is good wife material.BULLSHIT Did the feminist movement happen for nothing Do people still not realize that housework is WORK, not a sign of character or a mark of femininity For people who have enough leisure time to keep their houses spotless, or enough money to pay someone else to do it for them that s great, I m happy for you But if you re a single parent and work full time at a minimum wage job, by all means spend your precious few leisure hours reading books or meditating or sleeping or taking a walk or, heaven forbid, posting on facebook, and if your house is a mess I won t think a bit less of you In fact, if you slave away to make your house spotless, I m going to question your judgment, and wonder why you bought into the ridiculous mindset that cleanliness is next to godliness Leave a few germs around, for heaven s sake your son s immune system will be stronger

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Before going anywhere with this review I would like to say that I love Nicholas Sparks He has brought tears to my eyes by his heart wrenching stories many times But it really pains me to say that I did not like this book I am so disappointed.The premise, in short, is as follows Denise, a single woman in her late twenties has a 4 year old son, Kyle, who has learning disabilities Denise is juggling her evening shift at a local diner and is also managing to home school her son Kyle to improve Before going anywhere with this review I would like to say that I love Nicholas Sparks He has brought tears to my eyes by his heart wrenching stories many times But it really pains me to say that I did not like this book I am so disappointed.The premise, in short, is as follows Denise, a single woman in her late twenties has a 4 year old son, Kyle, who has learning disabilities Denise is juggling her evening shift at a local diner and is also managing to home school her son Kyle to improve his language understanding and speaking abilities.On a stormy weather one night, Denise s car skids and bangs against a tree She falls unconscious When she wakes up she finds that Kyle has disappeared.Taylor is a volunteer fireman who finds her unconscious in her car He and the other fireman manage to search and find Kyle from a swamp and it is very obvious that Taylor, being the hero of the novel, is instrumental in finding him.So far so good All this happens in the first 100 pages or less of this novel The rest of the novel is how they fall in love and how Taylor manages to overcome his issues from the past and how they live happily ever after.My main complain here, I never thought I would say this for a Nicholas Sparks novel, is the writing It s too cheesy Don t get me wrong, I love cheesy, but this is bad cheesy It s like he was trying too hard The Rescue lacks the easy and non pretentious writing of The message in the bottle.After the first hundred pages the book kind of dragged on and on and on I really did not understand how Taylor s problems from the past kept him from getting too close to Denise.Finally, I thought Nicholas Sparks tried to explain things a little too much I am intelligent enough to read in between the lines, thank you very much I don t need a step by step explanation of why the characters are doing what they are doing.Even though I did not like this book, I will certainly read another book by him, albeit with a little caution

    People come, people go they ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past

    My relationship with Nicholas Sparks began with The Notebook, the movie I LOVE that movie It s one of the few movies I can watch over and over I was so infatuated with the story I wanted to be Allie and where was my Noah and plantation house and when I found out there was a novel behind it, I searched it out and picked it up It was love at first page From there, I ve been picking up his books and waiting for his new releases.Nicholas Sparks has a craft of bringing his characters to lif My relationship with Nicholas Sparks began with The Notebook, the movie I LOVE that movie It s one of the few movies I can watch over and over I was so infatuated with the story I wanted to be Allie and where was my Noah and plantation house and when I found out there was a novel behind it, I searched it out and picked it up It was love at first page From there, I ve been picking up his books and waiting for his new releases.Nicholas Sparks has a craft of bringing his characters to life He doesn t just paint a story he brings it to life His character development is superb He pays attention to detail, not so much that it s overload, but enough to allow you to be there.My only complaint with this book, and many of his other books, is the book cover There is no wow factor It doesn t draw me in.The title as with most of his books has a double meaning not only is there a rescue in the beginning of the book, there s aimportant rescue that takes place towards the end Nicholas Sparks picks the perfect title for his books, making you wonder what it really means because he s not referring to the obvious.As with most Nicholas Sparks books, have the tissues ready You won t find lots of sex in this book Nicholas Sparks is a romantic sizer, not a sex hound.Review originally posted on The Book Vixen
