There is just something about Love Story... that I think deserves a review, and I don’t normally give reviews. I really like Jennifer Echols, there is just something about her writing that captivates me. I have never given her books anything less than a four. So, it’s no surprise that I am giving Love Story 5, and if I could give it higher, I would.

Love Story is about Erin Blackwell and Hunter Allen. Erin and Hunter go to the same college in New York. Here’s the catch, Hunter and Erin already know each other. Hunter worked at Erin’s grandmothers horse farm as a stable boy. Except the tables are turned, Erin’s grandmother decided to give Hunter Erin’s inheritance, all because Erin did not want to major in business and run the farm. There is a obvious attraction between the two of them and throughout the book, through short storeys, they write for class and real (story world) life, their attraction develops... Da-da-daa-daann (a theme song from god knows where ;).

I liked a lot of stuff about this book. Because of that, lets start at the start.

I liked the very beginning, how it did not start with the actual story, but a short story that Erin had written for the short story class she was taking. I really liked the fact that the book had short storeys like this throughout the book. I really enjoyed reading them, and then listening to the class discuss them, especially Manohar, but we will get to him later. I think the short story’s really enhanced the story, and they were probably one of my favourite aspects of the book.

Onto the climax, the writing, the characters...

I really enjoyed how the book built up to the big...'scene' and how it then kinda let itself down from there, how we were waiting for the ‘scene’ to happen and once it did the characters were left in the aftermath.

Ahh, so onto the characters, we have some very, very interesting characters and because of my weirdness (I never seem to like the hero that much, I’m more a sidekick sort of girl), I think this picture describes how I feel, especially in psych:

It also applies here, not with a pineapple though...

so sure I liked Hunter and Erin, they carried the story well, they were good quality people, they were a good couple. But sadly they were not Manohar and Summer, these to had to be hilarious as a couple, and I think I am absolutely in love with them as a couple, god would I love a book with these to as the main people. They were both sidekicks to Hunter and Erin and when it came down to it, they both had hilarious storeys and they gave hilarious advice. Oh yeah and they hated each other, so watching their romance play out on the side was just hilarious.

The writing, can’t say much here as I mentioned it before, but like all of Jennifer Echols writing I loved it. It was easy to read and had some interesting words thrown in there. It was good.

Onto the ending...


I felt good un satisfied at how the book ended, I can’t say much without giving a lot away, but I personally think it would have been better if the author had explained more, I dunno, written more, made it longer (maybe a sequel? With Summer and Manohar?). But I guess I can see why she ended it that way, in a way it sorta made a little sense.

Overall, it’s a good read and I recommend reading it, really ☺


In the very end, end, end. I was satisfied.

Jessica Orland Sounds good :)

Caitlin I felt that unsatisfied too! When I found out that it was the last page, I was screaming "no! not yet!".
