The part of the book that continued to thrill me, to tell the truth, was that this guy with this camp kind of approach infiltrated Middle America with Kiss.

And it was embraced by this world of testosterone and swagger, and I love where it came from. I love reminding people ——. Of what? That there was this small group of creative gay men who stealthily — and maybe also inadvertently — subverted straight culture? For me it connects to the oppression of my childhood and being judged by a conservative town and how that filled me with rage and made me want to defy them. I still feel that rage. But you channeled that rage into an exceptional career, whereas Larry LeGaspi is virtually unknown.
Is there an element, then, of this project as historical recuperation? It was not just LeGaspi. Most people in his circle also died. There are so many people to remember. To tell you the truth, I was not about memorializing one person. That might be the whole point of this book, that there is the possibility for that kind of sensibility to infiltrate Middle America. Is there also an element of nostalgia? I think I am nostalgic.
All I do these days is read autobiographies from the s. I like to look back and see how somebody maintained a standard all the way through life. But remember that this is also the story of other people, people like Juan Fernandez and Pat Cleveland, who were so immersed in that world and survived it. I always knew there was going to be an air of melancholy to the book. Though Larry died broke and living out of dumpsters. It seemed as though what she was doing was just inducing Kyle to copy her, instead of teaching him.
It seems torturous. For a half hour? For an hour? For 8 hours? Sparks in his Author's Note no way. Next time I'm that desperate for reading material I'll read the back of my shampoo bottle instead.

Sparks: This is why I do not read fiction!
George to the Rescue
Presumably all the main figures in the story are "rescued"--the little boy is lost and then rescued, the single mother meets the rescuer of her little boy and falls in love with him and marries him I think that is supposed to be HER rescue! I mean--what? Not my kind of book. Samuel Beckett could have had these characters sitting on folding chairs in the semi-darkness and we would understand more about them than Sparks' shows us in his whole narrative.
The mother, the son, the fireman--they're stiff and cliched at every turn. Sparks' has a frustrating habit it seems, having also read Message In A Bottle, of substituting plot intrigue and drama for actual character development.
Feb 02, Alaina rated it it was amazing Shelves: fiction , romance , february-challenge , books-i-own , contemporary. It has been a while since I've read a book by Nicholas Sparks and I have no idea why. However, I'm so happy that I dived back into his books due to this read-a-thon I joined recently. Because I just love to read and I love to read really good books.
I mean, who doesn't?
The Rescue was so freaking good. It has such a good opening line that basically sucks you instantaneously. Did you heart just pitter patter like mine? Of course it did. Besides Taylor, there's Denise who is a single mom who coincidentally doesn't have time for love in her life. Like at all. She's way too busy looking after her son, Kyle.
However, fate has decided other things for their lives because the two meet after a terrible storm hits their town. Taylor freaking saves Denise after she was in a car accident.
Waking up to his beautiful eyes. Ugh, I was jealous. I loved everything about these two humans, and I can't forget Kyle because I just adored him as well. However, I shipped the heck out of Taylor and Denise and I will continue throughout the rest of my life. Until my dying day. Seriously, I will. Overall, I loved this book so much that I can't wait to dive into my next sparks book.

Re-read: April 3rd time reading She knew that the initial feelings associated with love were almost like an ocean wave in their intensity, acting as the magnetic force that drew two people together. It was possible to be washed away in the emotion, but the wave wouldn't last forever. It couldn't -- nor was it meant to be -- but if two people were right for each other, a truer kind of love could last forever in it's wake.
At least, that's what she believed. Single mom Denise Holton is driving home one stormy night with her 4 year old son, Kyle. They had been at Duke, because Kyle was having yet another evaluation done. He had been misdiagnosed many times, with the doctors finally settling on central auditory processing disorder CAPD.
It could be somewhat described as dyslexia of sound He has the language ability of a 24 month old. On their drive home, a deer darts into the road, causing Denise to jerk the wheel. They crash headlong into a tree and Denise loses consciousness. She comes to when her car is spotted by volunteer fireman Taylor McAden, who's in the area looking for downed power lines. That's when Denise realizes that Kyle has left the car and wandered away, in the middle of a terrible storm, with nothing around but swamp. Basically a parents worst nightmare, to have their child missing. With Denise unable to search herself due to her injuries, Taylor helps to take charge of the search for Kyle.
Taylor though, is living constantly with guilt over something that happened in his past. Because of that guilt, he can't bring himself to fall in love.
