The Rescue - Nicholas Sparks

Yikes, this is slow-going. I'm sorry, but when they found the kid by page fifty, I sort of lost interest. I mean...what are we even doing for the rest of the book? Why write the entire plot synopsis like we're going to be looking for a missing child and let that plot last for an eighth of the book?
