Love Story

Erich Segal’s Love story


1st of all i was surprised to see the book has only 187 pages, not that it matters. but that’s something new for me. I remember seeing this book whenever i went to the book stores. At that time i never felt i should buy it though the title was tempting. I just felt it ll be some other love story, nothing great.

But this books really has that ‘x-factor’ that makes it unique. I like the way how it starts and it just flows by without any stumbles on the way. Now this is a story about Oliver Barrett IV and Jennifer Cavilleri. Oliver is very rich who is studying in Harvard and on his way to make a career in law. Jenny is studying music at Radcliffe. Oliver makes one feel like he is the guy next door and jenny is this high spirited, wisecracking young woman. Both hit it off at the 1st time with an initial funny and a sarcastic encounter.

They were definitely meant to be. it was almost a match made in haven. Almost. After a few up’s and downs [with Oliver’s father OB III ] they get married. but they have to work really hard to make ends meet. this was truly a test for them. How they got along through this tough time was remarkable though it was short, nonetheless they stuck to each other.

After Oliver gets his law degree and gets a great job everything seems to be going great. Untill they find out about the cancer [leukemia]. Here the story just goes with the flow without anything further. The end was the most heart wrenching for me. Till then everything was like alright.

This book is a great read. even if one doesnt like reading books they can give this a try since its very short and u can finish it in a record time. the best thing about this book was its simple, straight forward and realistic.

I would give it 4.2  out of 5.
Happy reading:)
