A Little Love Story

16th October 2005

A Little Love Story : A NovelInteresting story. Not a typical romance novel. Janet and Jake are in love, but must struggle with Janet’s life-threatening illness. As their romance unfolds, Jake’s backstory is also told. Janet and Jake are both very likeable, but not larger than life. On the whole, I enjoyed the book, although the ending was confusing to me.

This book stands out in stark positive contrast to Kingsbury’s A Thousand Tomorrows, which is about a similar theme. Merullo’s story, while sad, seems to be about real people dealing with tragic events. Kingsbury’s story was written purely for the emotional effect, and the characters do not act like any real people I’ve ever met.
