After reading Dear John and The Note Book by Nicholas Sparks, I was eager to read more of his great novels. In my hunt for the next one, I read the blurb for The rescue and thought it sounded interesting and dramatic. Just the sort of thing I like. However, this was not the case at all. The blurb is very misleading and instead of what I thought would be a thrilling read with romance included, It was instead about two 30 year old's acting like 15 year old teenagers. There was no definite story line and the characters were weak and had unrealistic and child like worries which I could only cringe at. My decision about this book was not improved when I heard the narrator. He voice hardly differed when changing to different characters and this made it sound mono toned and boring. Even though this book was very disappointing, I will continue to read/listen to Nicholas Sparks novels and I am sure I will fall in love with one of his many other stories.
