The Lover's Dictionary

The Lover's DictionaryThe Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is something unique about this book that makes it interesting and refreshing to read. It is a love story between a nameless couple, but David Levithan searched for seemingly random words and alphabetized them like entries in the dictionary. Interspersed are moments or memories of the roller coaster ride that a romantic relationship can bring.

This quote from the book describes it best:
"Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough."
