The Ultimate Love Story

Jun 16, 2016 10:11 PM 884 Views

Love Story was recommended to me by my brother and I'll be eternally grateful to him. The first line is one of the best starting lines I've ever read: "What can you say about a twenty-five year old girl who died?" Love Story is the story of Oliver Barrett III and Jennifer Cavilleri - how t...Read More

Erich Segal's Love Story is a fast read about the romance between two college students, Oliver and Jennifer, who get married several days after graduation. The tale is somewhat reminiscent of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, for Segal reveals the ending in the first line of the book as Oliver con...Read More

A masterpiece in its own right, Erich Segal's Love Story won millions or even billions of hearts and souls. As quoted by St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Love story is truly 'For someone who is in love, or was in love, or hopes to be in love.' Strength of Love story (LS) is its simplicity in its dep...Read More

Erich Segal: He makes me wonder if it's a fiction.

Apr 06, 2009 04:34 PM 9541 Views

*After reading the book for straight two and a half hours, which I have to tell of course 12am - 2:30am, I started to wonder if the story did really happened or if it is just a product of Segal's creative genius. The way the story was presented is very realistic and rarely found in the other ...Read More

Love means never having to say you are sorry!

I first came to know about this novel from the movie, "Mujhse Dosti Karoge " and it was made into notice so many times throughout that I thought of purchasing one and reading it. First of all, it was difficult for me to get it in Lucknow back then, but I must say, the wait was indeed worth. I...Read More

I read Love Story for the first time on the summer I turned 14. It was an amazing experience. This tale of true love really got me passionate about books and reading.

Why I chose to write this review… The recent events leading to Rizwanur Rehman’s death for making the mistake of marrying the person he loved, and the eloping of Telugu Megastar Chiranjeevi’s daughter with a commoner(from Chiranjeevi’s point of view) were the two high profile events that cove...Read More

Eric Segal’s ‘Love Story’ is indisputably one of the best love stories ever written. Therefore, it might come as a surprise to many to learn that he had originally written the story for a movie of the same name starring Ryan O’Neal and Allie McGraw, which was released back in 1970. It was only i...Read More

I am an avid reader of Fiction, Thriller and Suspense. Romantic Novels bore me. A hostel friend doing B.Tech gave me ''Love Story'' to read. I immediately returned it saying that reading love stories are not my taste. I want to thank that friend, I'm forgetting the first name, but his surname...Read More

Still retains its charm

May 31, 2006 11:51 AM 8648 Views

Erich Segal's ''Love Story'' written almost as an advertisement to the Movie ''Love Story'' before its release, is a short, sweet and somewhat superficial story of young love between two Ivy League scholars. Set in 1970, and written as a contemporary novel, Love Story explores the reminisces of ...Read More
