    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.

    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.

    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 tear...

    Love story is Loved forever

    A New York Times No. 1 bestseller, the book became the top selling work of fiction for 1970 in the United States, and was translated into 33 languages worldwide.

    This is a little mushy love story, yet is very lucid and classic. This is a prized possession in any book shelf. I have read it over 5 times and yet this is one love story I like reading. I definitely prescribe this to those who are in love, was in love or hopes to be in Love.

    Amazing book

    This is one of the few books that I go back to again & again. The plot is simply-a boy falling for a girl & then, they marrying against parental opposition. But, what makes this a classic is the way Eric Segal writes. One can feel the characters come to life. If you happen to read this book, check out the hockey match part to understand what I mean. Also, the end is so wonderfully can't help but feel for Jenny. I always cry when I read the end, when she dies. Infact, when I am al...

    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...
