in order to really enjoy any story, you need to get the ending out of the way as soon as possible

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

on March 5, 2012

Another weekend, another book. This time, i settled for an ebook by N. Sparks – THE RESCUE.

Again i wonder how he write such books. Books that never cease to keep you glued to your seats. I love how he mixed the story of love in this book. This made me cry actually, especially the part where Denise and Taylor got in a fight and when Kyle was hurt because Taylor didn’t arrive for his birthday. It was sad till the part where Mitch also died which make it sadder for me. I hate it when one of the characters that i love dies. ( Why do authors do that!!!) 😛

Well, yes i admit this one is good love story – well most of N.Sparks books are very very very good. How superlative could i still get? I am not a sucker for love stories which is why i seldom read them ( and i settle for crime) but i can honestly say i am a sucker for N. Sparks. There is something how he write the story that makes it all so real – so realistic. It isn’t absurd. It just hit you on the right spot. Making you cry or teary eyed for that matter. Making you sad and in the end still making you smile and happy.

I am glad i read this book for this weekend – i had too much crime these weekend actually ( too much CSI , N CIS…:P ) it was a reminder of love – love not just for a special someone but love also for the kids.

This book also learned me some new stuff actually. Before, i only know of kids who are autistic, or has ADHD…i didn’t know that there are kids who also has central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), which make this book a lot more interesting for me. I swear i didn’t know about this kind of disorder. ( And there are still a whole lot more i do not know) But glad i’ve read this and it opened my mind more. It made me see that there are kids out there so unfortunate to have such disorder…that there are kids who cannot process language like we do. Yet as what the book said, they are normal and should be treated normal – just that they are special and should be treated in a special kind of way. 🙂

CAPD is Auditory processing disorder (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is a complex problem affecting about 5% of school-aged children. These kids can’t process the information they hear in the same way as others because their ears and brain don’t fully coordinate. Something adversely affects the way the brain recognizes and interprets sounds, most notably the sounds composing speech.


I am so glad i read this book – additional knowledge…more reasons why i love to read.

additional realization…..

Plus it also made me realize how special my kids are. Often times, i do criticize them for being lazy when it comes to reading..or criticize them for being a “smart mouth” they do talk back and can say a lot of words which some times..irritates me. Now i know i should, i am now thankful they can think that way – more often they think too much actually. They can say whatever that comes into their mind and can speak out what they feel and what they want. I am sooo grateful for that now ( Thank God.) I also plan to educate them on what CAPD is. So in a way they will also learn 🙂

so..reading such “love stories” just do not tell you how great it is to love. It tells you a whole lot more if you look at at it in a different perspective. Way to go N. Sparks!
