Firstly this book is not called love or something like it, that is the title of a book by Deirdre Shaw. This book is called lovers or something like it.

Reading this book is like cheating on Milan Kundera. not that I'm suggesting that Milan's wife should cheat on him with Florian, although Florian is younger and hotter.

** Everything in italics came out of the book itself**

I’ve always know that there is a special kind of hell for those people who don't know how to suffer those people who come upon the world being one of those people who don't know how to love.

I read this book when I want to understand men, love and relationships. Tristan is the ultimate cad. He's a coward who is in typical male fashion afraid to commit to the sensitive and lovelorn Amelie and predictable as it sounds, the author writes a beautiful short novel with such wonderful memorable passages, that my poor book is scribbled with notes and lines of my favorite quotes. I became a huge fan of Florian after I read this.

Well observed, subtle and beautifully written. It's short so can be read in one sitting, but this is a book to read slowly and savour, or to read several times over. Both characters inspire sympathy and dislike by turns, and Zeller shows a remarkable insight in his depictions of both characters hopes and fears.

This book discusses the insecurities ,doubts and misgivings of people beautifully.The indepth explanation of the psychology of Tristan and Amelie is also very interesting.It helped me better understand myself and people around me.I love psychological books and this book definitely had that angle to it.
