Love Story is a 1970 romance novel by the American writer Erich Segal. Segal adapted the novel from a screenplay he had written. A film based on the screenplay ( Love Story) was also released in 1970.
Love Story became the top selling work of fiction for all of 1970 in the United States, and was translated into more than 20 languages. A sequel, Oliver's Story, was published in 1977.
Its a very unpretentious small book; just over 150 pages but once you start reading it you will finish it in one go. What’s different about this novel is that the bulk of the novel consists of actual conversations between the characters, which is very realistic. This tragic story of love inspires and enriches anyone who reads it.
