    Description

    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.

    Story that I wanna read again!

    I read this book few years ago as a ebook. Later, I found, that I want to read it again. So, this time ordered its paperback on flipkart with a good amount of discount. I will not express any praise about how good the story is. I will just say if you are going to read this book for the first time, then read it and you will find out why you want to read it again.

    Wonderful

    The book starts with the twist in the story and It is also fast-paced and boring at the start. You can't feel the love between them. But then as the story develops you get so engrossed in It that you just forget the twist in the story until you read the sentence again. This is what i lovd the most about This book. Nevertheless, It leaves crying at the end and makes you question the forces of fate despite knowing that everything was fictitious. This is the magic of Erich Sehgal

    What a story.... heart wrenchingly beautiful!

    This is one book I can read over and over and over again, and no matter how many times I read it, it touches my heart. I just simply fell in love with the characters more than 15 years back and it is so difficult to let go.

    I was going through the reviews and I can't believe there are comments saying the writing is average and the book is boring. If you are looking for baseless romantic comedy, this is not the book for you. It's a very emotional story with superb story telling. Ofcourse eac...
