    1. Love means never having to say you re sorry is probably among some of the most ridiculous statements ever Luckily it s a rare blemish on a simple but beautiful story Plus it s cheesy, corny, and insanely quotable, so I ll have to give it a pass on that.A girl and a boy meet and fall in love Jenny is a poor artistic sorta Catholic Radcliffe educated Italian American brainiac with a razor sharp tongue Oliver is a rich WASPy Harvard Preppy jock with a slew of Daddy issues and a Roman numeral after [...]


    2. I read Love Story because I didn t want to see the movie, but I wanted to know what everyone was talking about While it was an affecting and sentimental little story, even at that young age I felt that it was trying too hard to tug on my heartstrings It seemed, somehow, too juvenile, even to my then very juvenile mind In later years, I came to realize that the movie s oft quoted line, Love means never having to say you re sorry is a complete falsehood In fact, love means always being willing to [...]


    3. I appreciate a good love story No, don t give me THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY that book was crap Give me a story where the characters are aligned with Holden Caulfield or Pookie from Nichol s THE STERILE CUCKOO I want smart assy and witty banter I want characters that play by their own rules or make them up as they go along I want the possibility of real life Enter Erich Segal and LOVE STORY Published in 1970, this short 133 page novel is relatively obscure today That s a shame Segal created w [...]


    4. I laughed I cried and believe me i cried a lot I fell in love I learned I simply love the book It was indeed beautifully written and it reached out into the depths of my soul My heart just poured out as I read the last few pages of the book Such a tiny book to stir such great emotions in me beautiful.


    5. Shallow, contrived pseudo tearjerker I read this many years ago when it came out, and even though I was much younger and not as wise and mature as I am now, I realized how meaningless was the by word of the book, Love means not having to say you re sorry Love actually means being constantly ready to ask for, give, and receive forgiveness.



    6. It s a very simple story.A boy meets a girl,they fall in love,but instead of happily ever after, there s a sad ending But it was the emotions in the book which made it worth reading The story is beautiful, funny,emotional,and a bit sad As much as I loved the story,it was very simple,and I am giving it 4 stars only because it was very touching,and also because this book was capable of making me read it when it has already told the ending on the very first page It was a great short read


    7. I thought Erich Segal s Love Story would be great I really did, considering all the hype that has lasted for decades ButThere was no chemistry at all between Oliver and Jenny The Couple The only thing they have in common is they like to swear a lot which got too old too soon in the book I mean, Oliver had way chemistry with Phil, his wife s dad, than with his own wife.Neither characters were likable or relatable We don t get to know them at all All we know is that Oliver is a rich kid who loves [...]


    8. It may be that you need a Super Sad True in the title, for this is the only way the tale could be made relevant and contemporary in the year 2017 The jock Italian girl thing may of once been deemed, you know, sultry As exotic for this WASPy crowd as anything else Right now, 20 yr olds getting married seems a bigger, exotic, waaaay rarer occurrence Snarky and sexy teens ALWAYS in vogue tales of new but doomed love Hella Ditto.


    9. Jednostavnim stilom i kratkom pricom ispricanom iz njegove perspektive, uspjesno docarati ljubavnu pricu Rekla bih, jako zahtjevno Svaka cast na uspjehu


    10. Read this in high school and even though love reading loved reading stories about dying young, really didn t think much of this Yes, I admit I was interested in Jenny Oliver and their love story But when people have leukemia or whatever it was she was supposed to have had, they physically suffer a lot Thought the way her illness was described was so unrealistic and dishonest And love does not mean never having to say you re sorry I always thought that iconic saying from the book was ridiculous [...]


    11. Here is a review that I wrote years back What can you say about a twenty five year girl who died That she was beautiful.And Brilliant.That she loved Mozart and Bach.And the Beatles.And me.Oliver Barret IV went to Harvard and Jenny Cavilleri to Radcliffe He was rich, she was poor He was sporty, she played music.But they fell in love.This is their story The first time I came across Love Story, it was the movie and not the book I was enthralled by the movie and when finally I got hold of the book, [...]


    12. Oliver Barrett is the scion of the Barrett family and Jennifer a social zero Theirs is not an ordinary love story This romance keeps the reader glued till the end, or rather an unpleasant end The narrative is strong, effortless and edgy No wonder it became a bestseller of its time and continues to spawn movie and TV adaptations I can remember so many movies that have the same plot and yet, none has come close to evoking those same feelings as the book I was literally moved to tears by the end Al [...]


    13. CHE FINE HA FATTO LOVE STORY Erich Segal morto da pochi giorni e mi sono ricordato che anch io sono uno fra i tanti che ha letto questo libro Rimosso per vergogna Possibile Ma sicuramente, rimosso perch non pi presente fisicamente nella mia libreria l ho perso nel corso del tempo e non me ne sono mai accorto Secondo me vuol dire qualcosa, giustifica questa singola stella Se si aggiunge poi il fatto che dopo aver letto il libro non ho mai avuto voglia di vedere il film, la singola stella pi che m [...]


    14. This was a fun, refreshingly charming, quick read That is, until it reached in, ripped my heart out and crushed it into smush I adored the book, I adored the characters and their flaws, I adored the relationship between Oliver and Jenny.Highly recommended, please go read it if you haven t already Now, if you ll excuse me, I need to go cry into a pillow.


    15. Love means you never have to say sorry That line makes famous from this book I am quite surprise how short is this book Even it is short, it is a very beautiful love story I can see Nicholas Spark takes some leaf from this book Beautiful honest and not so dramatic Love it I wish I can see the movie now.


    16. I found this book in our cabin up on Monhegan Island in Maine I m the biggest baby when it comes to romance We were sitting there playing Scrabble there s no tv and listening to Delilah on the radio I was already almost finished with this book, so I read it between my turns I just started flat out bawling at the table in front of everyone as I finished It s such a quick read, but man does this book pack an emotional punch The characters really come to life Although their basic descriptions may s [...]



    17. My rating 2 of 5 starsSource Library Checkout I plan to discuss parts of this book in detail so spoilers Oliver Barett IV is a rich jock from a well to do family Jenny Cavilleri is a poor, wise ass sorta chick This is definitely a case of opposites attract with a touch of Romeo and Juliet syndrome they were destined to fail from the beginning But they meet they fall in love, etc etc And as the summary so eloquently puts it sharing a love that defies everything yet will end too soon What can you [...]


    18. Apparecchio per la glicemia A significa non dover dire mai mi dispiace.Ma nessuno ha mai riflettuto sul messaggio distorto che veicola la frase cult di questa indimenticabile opera Comunque trattasi del classico libro capace di far leva sul senso di empatia generazionale grazie ai soliti, triti e ritriti, luoghi comuni ereditati dalla celeberrima opera di Shakespeare.Intrattenimento fine a se stesso e dalla scarsa profondit , ma sono comprensibili le lacrime a fiumi versate negli anni 70.


    19. Koliko god puta pro itala ovu knjigu, do ivljaj je uvijek isti Toplina i ljubav, pro eti sjetom, uz najljep i citat Voljeti ne zna i vje ito ponavljati da ti je ao.


    20. Gegara dibahas di twitter baru nyadar klo gw belum nge rate buku ini.Ceritanya sih bagus, tapi bikin sakit hati dan ogaaahhhh buat baca ulang.Sakit hatinya kebawa ampe sekarang Ngeliat nama Oliver aja masih suka sedih Liat bentuknya Harpard sedih lagi norak deh p Dan liat nama yg ketulisnya Erich bikin sewot karena jadi ingat si Mr Segal ini Padahal bacanya udah belasan tahun lalu, nonton filmnya juga udah lama Tapi sakit hatinya ninggal ampe sekarang.Makanya salut deh sama orang yang udah baca [...]


    21.

    22. I am the kind of person who has never read MBs yes the Mills Boons mania Infact by the age I realised what they are and how essential they were in the growing years of a girl s life, I never even felt like reading them So you can imagine how I feel about love stories, the candy floss romance, boy meets girl they start dating before they knwo they fall in love and then the problems start So here I have summarised 99% of the love stories written sometimes the only difference is that problems happe [...]


    23. Re read April 11, 2015I loved this novel when I was growing up Now as an adult, I can detect some of its flaws I wasn t around during the 60 s the time period in which this novel was set , but surely there had to have been some code of medical ethics view spoiler Was it even legal for a doctor to inform the husband of his ADULT wife s terminal illness, while withholding that information from the wife herself Jenny was a mentally sound adult, she should have been told of her diagnosis upfront imm [...]


    24. 3.5 Harvard and Radcliffe stars Meet Oliver Barett IV, Harvard undergraduate and an aspirant in law studies Rich as gold, total hockey jock.Enter Jenny Cavilleri, studying music at Radcliffe Sassy and exceedingly witty And here s how it all started What the hell makes you so smart I asked I wouldn t go for coffee with you, she answered Listen I wouldn t ask you That, she replied, is what makes you stupid The book exploits films and tiers of cheese and corn, and is in every bit, predictable The r [...]


    25. A boy and a girl meet They fall in love The girl dies And we have one of the best romances of all time SERIOUSLY I may as well give it no stars as far as the plot is concerned I started it today, I finished it today and I can t decide whether it s a good thing or otherwise Writing a short novel is fine but why do i feel like I missed the part where I was supposed to feel the love seeping through the pages There s no chemistry between the couple at all.The characters are not really likeable Olive [...]


    26. I wrote the following answering to an inquiry, I repost it here in case anyone else is interestedo stars because it was readable and not overdrawn, synthesis is a virtue I appreciate, especially when the literary value is scarce it s cliche galore, as it has already been mentioned.What I did not appreciate is how the characters behaved before she got ill with all his hard feelings against his cold and very rich father, Oliver sets out to become a high income corporate lawyer and Jenny renounces [...]


    27. If 70 s writers were teen celebrities, Erich Segal would have been Bobby Sherman or, to use a contemporary analogy, Justin Beiber But there is no analogy or scale on earth that would describe how bad this novel is After reading Love Story in the 70s, I had to go to the bathroom to purge myself A regular diet of this crap would cause literary bulimia The movie didn t fare any better having caused me to endure a lifetime hatred of both Ali McGraw and Ryan O Neal You have been warned If you are un [...]


    28. Ieri mi tornato in mente questo libretto di Segal, e ho pensato ma perch non recensirlo.Okay, l ho letto nel Febbraio del 2011 Sono un adolescente, non mi dispiacciono le storie d a Non sono un sasso, se il libro scritto bene sono capace di commuovermi questa proprio una cavolata view spoiler A quanto pare la madre di tutte quelle storie melodrammatiche dove i piccioncini in questione si conoscono per caso, e basta qualche parola che subito si capisce come finir LUI, che ha tutti i vantaggi che [...]
