The Lover's Dictionary

The Lover's Dictionary - David Levithan A concise and resonating work, detailing the emotional complexities of a love story between two people who could be any one of us. I surly felt that a fair portion of what Levithan wrote came from the entries I've written in my own head over my own experiences regarding love and relationships. I could relate so innately. The way in which it's presented, poetry-like, is an artistic style I appreciated and found refreshing, especially when trying to retell this type of rendering, an experience of love. Though it may leave some with a lot to be desired, I found it thoroughly apt in capturing the struggles and high points we go through, especially the doubt-factor, in moving from the singular me, to the me+you, pair...us.
