I always enjoy the dialogue in the novel vs. A perfect modern tragedy and that makes a best-seller that reads still fresh many decades after its first appearance. Despite the fact that the story is only pages long almost 35 pages shorter than The Great Gatsby , the two characters in the novella are surprisingly memorable for each of them has a very strong or headstrong personality that defines who they are.

The story has been called a modern version of Romeo and Juliet, but it goes deeper than that. The plot of the story addresses social differences in the American society, family pressure, and expectations.

Toward the end of the story Jennifer is diagnosed with leukemia and that is the reason why she can't conceive. Oliver is devastated and ridden with guilt. Oliver buys airline tickets for Paris, but Jennifer states that is not the way they are going to approach her disease and her final days.

This book was a success by the way the plot addressed social issues that were not openly discussed and were not well known by the general public, unless the reader belonged to the high class society. The story addresses love and sacrifice. It also shows how family expectations and demands are prioritized over parents love and support for their child.

The characters idiosyncrasy and upbringing plus the story development and structure make a touching and fascinating book. Only bought the book because of "good girls revolt".

For modern readers, Love Story is a victim of its own success. This simple book has become difficult to read for exactly the way it is. Many of its most famous lines sound corny because they have become trite with the overuse since the arrival of the book.

In fact, some of them would only appear in jokes and satire now. The characters appear sweet beyond belief: Yet, like Cinderella, this is a fairytale.

One of those rare ones written in modern times. One can go on a beautiful emotional trip with the leads, fall in love, get married, build a home and suffer the terminal cancer through the crisp repartees between them.

The only condition is to believe in the text written - nothing more, nothing less. If you can do it, this is a tale that can be savored even multiple times and even when one is not in the teens. Everything is so predictable and nothing amazing It's not really the greatest story. Everything is so predictable and nothing amazing really happens until the last few pages. I felt like I was reading what that girl's name's story. See all reviews.
