Lose your heart to the novel that defined a generation then... and now.
Love means never having to say you're sorry....
He is Oliver Barrett IV, a rich jock from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law. She is Jenny Cavilleri, a wisecracking, working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe. Opposites in nearly every way, Oliver and Jenny immediately attract, sharing a love that defies everything ... yet will end too soon. A love that will linger in your heart now and forever.

This book was hugely popular when it was first released and I can see why. It's a moving story told in a dry, witty prose. The dialogue is very well done and often quite funny. It's a sad yet ultimately very hopeful and redemptive story. I thought this reading by the author was pitch-perfect. His reading captures the dry tone, the humour, and the understated pathos of the story.
My mom was in high school or she had just graduated from high school when this book and AWESOME adaptations were barely made to the screenplay. I have been waiting for years to hear the story. I read it, I saw the movie and now... I'm in Love with never having to say you're sorry....that's what it means.
College English professor who loves classic literature, psychology, neurology and hates pop trash like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Beautifully written, this story of star crossed lovers is a Valentine's Day classic! Read it with someone you love!
I might read/listen to another book by Erich Sagel. It depends upon who recorded it.
No. I'd read another story from this genre.
I didn't like his performance because he just seemed to read the text. There was no emotion where there needed to be, especially at the end.
I wouldn't have cut any of the scenes as much as have embellished upon some. He really could have expounded upon the main characters love for one another and how they spoke to one another was fun, not matter-of-fact like.
