WOW! This would have to be one of the best books I've read in awhile. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the author or is just looking for a fantastic book, which keeps you on your toes. picked it up every free second I had. Once again Nicholas Sparks keeps on pleasing his readers.This novel includes all of his writing trademarks, secretive pasts, a new love, tragedy, and a pleasing but shocking end. One day Denise and her speaking impaired son Kyle were in a tragic accident. Then Taylor, a volunteer fireman came along Denise and rescues Kyle. After some time together, they both have to face their pasts in order to make their love for each other to work out. Taylor tries to overcome the guilt of the tragic losses of two important people in his life and learning how to love and stay committed to a woman. Denise learns to let go of her wounded pasts and fears of her mother, Kyle's dad, Kyle, and letting someone get close to him.So in my opinion, from the ones I've read, The Rescue would be one of the best books Nicholas Sparks has written. I would put on my list of my top five favorite books. I loved the book and didn't find one negative thing about it. Every time you turn the page, something more shocking and unexpected happens. More secrets are revealed.If you're looking forward to reading a wonderful romance, then you should read this book. I promise you will love it. It's a wonderful book and ties the plots and characters perfectly together to form a marvelous love story.Read it, and when you finish, you won't be disappointed.

This book tells the story of Denise Holton, an isolated, poverty-stricken single mother of a handicapped four year old boy who is rescued by Taylor McAden, volunteer fireman and construction worker during a storm in North Carolina. As you can expect, the two eventually get to know each other and fall in love. This book was okay. It moves awfully slow, with long, drawn-out scenes heaped with exaagerated melodrama. Neither Taylor or Denise are very likeable characters in my mind, and the ending (before the epilogue) is messy. But it's your basic sappy love story and I enjoyed some parts of it.

    Ahhhhhhh!
    After reading "A Walk to Remember" I was very leery on reading another Sparks book. Not that it wasn’t well written but it was a little “too close to home”. “The Rescue” was a wonderful read! When a book can make you smile, get teary eyed and anxiously wonder what’s going to happen next, I call that a book worth reading. I'm looking forward to reading other Sparks books!

    Make sure to have your tissues handy when reading this book. I generally don't cry when reading a book but this one made me sob uncontrollably. I wish all books were as good as this one. I can't wait to read more of Nicholas Spark's books.

    I highly recommend reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed and couldn't put it down.

    Nicholas Sparks wrote a great book when he wrote this story. It was so intriguing and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. It was heart wrenching.

    I don't know how anyone could give this book anything other than 5 stars.
    I did not have high expectations when I bought this book; I was more or less taking a chance. I ended up reading this book in one day. Nicholas Sparks did a great job with the creativity of the story - adding in twists and turns that fell into being a classic page turner. I have never cried when reading a novel, but, this book was a perfect blend of intrigue, emotion, and suspense, so much that I found myself wondering what I would do in some of the situations. I would recommend it to anyone, and already have.
