The RescueNicholas Spark’s novel never failed to make me cry, and this book is not different. I have read 10 books from this Author, including ” The Rescue”.  There is something in his novels which makes you get attached to the characters and see them as humans rather than just characters. When he writes a story every character comes into life. The Rescue is about a mother with her abnormal child, who has got learning disabilities and a gentleman who is commitment phobic, and with a terrible past memory making him suffer every moment.

Denise and her son Kyle meets with am accident in a bad weather right after moving to a new town. They are rescued by a volunteer fireman, Taylor and from there their friendship blooms. Kyle is attached to Taylor as he never was attached to anyone. Denise who is single mother and gone through lot of difficulties is scared to take the friendship to next level. But Taylor with his charm and gentleness gets hold on her heart. Everything is perfect until Taylor’s previous self is returned and the chilling truth is that he shows no interest anymore. Will Denise be able to go through this heart break? Will Kyle understand what it means that Taylor can’t be there for him anymore? Whats is this thing keeping Taylor away from everything?

Its a good book, I recommend for those who enjoy Nicholas Spark’s novels. I read it somewhere that this is his debut. My ratings: 3 out of 5.

P.S: I was crying when I reached very close to the end of this book, reading Denise speak out her feelings. I was travelling in bus with lots of tissues in hand, but fortunately as it was afternoon time there were very less people to notice me!

The Best Of MeAnother Nicholas Spark’s book, I always liked his novels. I believe he is a man with women’s heart!  very sentimental and soft heart indeed. I am his fan since the day I read his  ”The Last Song” , then I read many of his books like ” A walk to remember”, ”The Notebook”, ”Safe Heaven”.

”The Best Of Me” was  a little disappointing  even though I liked the story and characters, there was something missing in the book. It is story of Amanda and Dawson , in their middle age but  never moved on from their teenage love even though they think they have. After many years they are meeting unexpectedly for a funeral and everything comes back to them. Will Amanda suppress her feelings for him, because she is married and happy with her 3 kids? Will Dawson can control his affection when he is seeing his love of life? It is going to be really tough for both of them. Who will suffer when both falls in love once again?

It is usual Nicholas Spark book with little tragedy at the end! This is not spoiler, because if you are Nicholas Spark’s fan then you know what type of ending to expect! It is bitter sweet love story. But first time I gave 2 out of 5 for his book.
