Love Story (Paperback) Price: Rs.135

Love Story is a best-selling novel by author and screenwriter Erich Segal who also wrote the screenplay for a movie of the same name.

Summary Of The Book

One of the highest selling fiction novels of all time and probably one of the most widely read romance novels, Love Story is a tale of how two people from very different worlds fall in love with each other and fight for their love.

The male protagonist of the book is Oliver Barrett IV, a student at Harvard Law School and the heir of a wealthy family. Jennifer Cavilleri, a music major at Radcliffe College, who is the daughter of a baker from Rhode Island is from a different world altogether. The book describes how such polar opposites can fall in love and how their unmatched passion dominates their lives and takes them on a beautiful yet tragic journey.

Characters in the book have also drawn inspiration from popular personalities Al Gore and Tommy Lee Jones, who were roommates. The author met the two at Harvard in 1968.

Love Story sold more than 21 million copies and it was translated into more than 33 different languages. The book was released on Valentine’s Day in the year 1970 and was in The New York Times Best Seller list for a total of 41 weeks and reached the top spot too.

The book was based on the screenplay that author Erich Segal wrote for a movie of the same title that was released in December, 1970. He was asked by the studio, Paramount Pictures, to write the novelization of the movie to act as a preview of it.

Average, but good chemistry between the lovers

ABOUT THE STORY : Its plain average. Its funny at times and sentimental towards the end but it didn't really touch my heart. But I found the chemistry between the lovers to be good. If you want to read a really good and biographical love story, I heartly recommend 'Two States' by Chetan Bhagat. 'Two States' is intelligent, entertaining and stays with you longer than 'Love Story'. But it doesn't have the sentimental part which makes 'Love Story' stand out. I only say sentimental so I won't reveal the story. I have heard some good reviews about 'I too had a love story' by Ravinder Singh but h... ()

ABOUT THE BOOK: It has a very beautiful cover, the paper is comparatively thick, paper quality is good, letters are bigger than regular, but I think the binding may come off if you are careless and bend it while reading.
ABOUT FLIPKART: I have purchased before and they delivered at the exact time but this time a day late, but I didn't mind. The packaging was very good as usual. I will probably buy from flipkart again.

Heartwarming

Love Story is one of those books which I can read again and again. Last time I read the book nearly 5-6 years back but somehow I lost my copy of Love Story. So just for the sake of adding it back to my collection I ordered this book. And I must say, reading it after so long was as wonderful as reading it for the first time. The love between Oliver and Jennifer is so pure and unpretentious that you can't resist falling in love with their love story. I didn't expect that I would still have tears in my eyes when Jenny dies (I mean had I not already read the whole scene before and cried over it... ()

I didn't expect that I would still have tears in my eyes when Jenny dies (I mean had I not already read the whole scene before and cried over it!). But that's the magic of Erich Segal. Only one complaint - it ends too soon. I wish I could have more of Oliver and Jenny.
Its a masterpiece and if you are a romantic you just cannot miss this book. Go grab it.
Thumbs up to flipkart for their excellent service!

Just Wonderful Love Story

This book is wonderful, Period. I must have finished it within 4 hours. This book had it all Fun, Love, Laughs, Tears. I enjoy all the books but few books make me feel like crying this one did and I almost obliged :). Unlike Oliver Barrett IV I didn't cry. But no one can deny that this is a magical story and book. Now it may seem like that we have seen this story many a times but remember this one was written way back in 1970 and since then many movies have copied this story. This is a moving and tragic love story and at around 180 pages not too long so every book lover should give it a try... ()

OK OK

I dunno why but I am not finding it so good. I was bored to read this. I have read many better love stories then this. This story did not touch my heart. Nicholas Sparks books are really good compared to this one.

Best of love stories... as I heard it is.

Best of love stories... as I heard it is.

First of all, about the edition. It was nice. Big Fonts. Less text per page. Anyone can read it at a pace of a page per 45 seconds. So a perfect edition for a guy like me.

Now about the story. This is my kind story. I've always like love stories, in which either of the leads die. Just like movies - A walk to remember, Sweet November, PS I love you... So this is a feast for me. A perfect love.. story.
