A: "recap" can be used in contexts other than lessons, so it's pretty general, but even more general would be to just use "review".

Nevertheless the story makes you reflect ON what it is to be normal and what IS not. AT the end OF THE DAY, we are ALL people with DIFFERENT skills and INTERESTS. From the beginning the story CAUGHT my EYE, constantly DEALING OUT unpredictable surprises. Also the author INCORPORATED pictures FROM his own collection that really attracted MY attention and they ALSO SERVED as guide during the REST OF THE story. SO for me it WAS interesting, entertaining and more (I'M NOT SURE WHAT THIS LAST BIT MEANS)

DEALING OUT still sounds a bit strange, I'd restructure it to say "with lots of surprises" or similar.
