First Entry for Reading Process [Nothing Lasts Forever by Sidney Sheldon]

Part 1 

1. Reaction : I was really awestruck after discovering Paige Taylor's husband to be was Jason Curtis. I really thought Alfred Turner would be her future partner whom she had poured out all her dreams when they were young. Every chapter brings an exaggerating revelation making out rolling twists I could not have imagined. 
At the last Chapter, I felt there was no chance for Paige to win the case filed against her. She underwent euthanasia. The case was really down ended if were also to see it. No strong evidence. She even admitted that she injected the insulin to John Cronin's IV a cancer victim who suffered from tremendous heart cancer). However, Paige put the insulin to make him fall asleep - not to kill him. All the witnesses called to give their side were also against Paige. It was a triggering devastation on my side because I knew Paige was not a total liar - She's a very good surgeon.
The author greatly made a high-paced and snap-crackling kind of novel divulging the best shot of defense at the end of the story when the only and most awaited witness, Dr. Barker came out and gave his outraging stand to help Paige win the case. I thought he was going to put Paige down because he even hated her in the first place.
2. Question :  I wonder why the author did not make a story chapter for the three young doctors to discover each background and past experiences. He just wrote their stories but he did not make them learn their secrets. There must have a setting for the revelation. And I wonder why nobody witnessed for Paige and defended her from the case. It was only Paige who stood for herself and admitted what she did. 
3. Predict: I think that if John Cronin had immediately told Paige about the money and property she would not have been put into prison and suffering. 
And if Paige received the letter earlier, she would not have hoped for Alfred to come back.
4. Connect : Life being a woman doctor is not easy. I have taken note of it - "woman doctor". Most doctors are men and I found it interesting when the three young doctors were involved. I know how it feels to be trapped inside a hospital bearing countless conflict of schedules and shifting. I have also drowned amidst pressures in school and I felt like I can't make a track with my social life. It is somewhat obnoxiously taking a lady's nut in drudgery. I am choleric but I can manage to control my temper. 
The story of the tree doctors is a great realization for me and for other women to be off to discrimination and heartbreaks and on to bravery and new love.  They are examples for me to keep going no matter what.


If the main characters from two different novels could actually meet, who would you want to meet with whom? Why? What would their meeting be like? Use story details for support.

Euthanasia and the Deathly Hallows


he battle between good and evil was over. Paige Taylor's life had changed from a nightmare to a fulfilled dream. She got married with Jason Curtis and they lived happily like no one else could ever drag their fate down. Euthanasia. The operation Paige Taylor had done that put her into prison. It is a process of killing a suffered patient to inject a medicament to end terrible disease. By then, the bed-ridden patient would be lifeless.
Harry Potter got married with Jenny Wesley. They had conquered death and plucked the victory for the Hogwarts. Evil predicament had ended. They were now in peace. Now, Lord Voldemort was gone leaving a tremendous scar for revenge even until the world of humans. He left a remarkable destruction that no one had ever thought of him to come back. . . .

01:15 a.m. the telephone rang. Paige got into her knees as she woke up for her another shift. She hurried on as she picked up her coat and name tag and went to room 45. She almost bumped out as she barged in and took her utensils.
 “Where’s the patient?” Paige asked.
“He’s terribly out of control. We can’t see any fracture in checking his brain and temperature. There’s no problem, I’m afraid” Honey Taft said as she crammed. Paige was perplexed. “Ok let me do it.” She swiftly muttered.
As she got nearer, she removed the patient’s eyeglasses.
“Arrrrggghhh ! uh.. Please help me. I must not be here… my wife.” Harry Potter gasped. For the first time, Paige got her eye caught on Harry Potter’s scar as she tried to touch it with the scalpel. She felt like it was not a natural belonging to be inside an operating room. She felt as if there was a reverberating blast inside her to connect with a supernatural clasp to the patient.
“You’re not a human, are you?” Harry uttered as he was trying to catch his breath from pain. “Please help me out.”
Paige was awestruck. “What are you talking about? I’m a surgeon … and I operate diseases. I. . . I don’t understand. Who are you?” she asked as if she was in stupor.
HE is back!!”As Harry shouted his word, an iron thunder blurted outside the county hospital and a blazing snap dropped Paige and Harry out of their places. They were tumbling and shouting amidst an indescribable light inside a hole. By then, they vanished in a blink of an eye. As they transformed, a light dazzled before their countenance and swiftly blinded their pasts.From a magical and natural life, Paige and Harry met to overcome a demonic world. Paige, as a doctor did not expect something supernatural will happen. And Harry, as a person, not already a witch, has come to a new fight.These characters would join forces as they are going to fight against Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter’s bravery and Paige Taylor’s faith would unite their extraordinary possessions to have Jesus Christ as their weapon. From then on, they would become teen agers, winning souls for Christianity and save people from death.Being a surgeon is not always the best way to heal someone or help him live.  And having magic is not always needed to save humanity. IT is all about JESUS CHRIST – not to make bad people good but to make the dead live. And that is their role, to become transformed humans to introduce the word of God. N o Euthanasia, no surgery, no prisoner’s stone and deathly hallows.  Only the BIBLE.
