  • 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.

    Wonderful

    The book is really great. Besides it the packing company sent it in a box because of which the corners of the book are in good condition. It also has a bookmark which I liked it.

    Good.

    It is a good book, short indeed. But, I got the plot of the story, when I was midway through. But the ending made me cry. So thumbs up for the book. The paper back is pretty cool. I really loved it!

    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.

    light read!!

    it is considered a classic! Probably because it was written very long ago and was ahead of time during its launch!
    the story is predictable and the book is short and light read!!
    a bit tough for indian readers but easy to get the feel of the book!
    buy it if you like love stories...
