Well ok, I rate this book five stars, but if you would have asked me what id rate it in the first few chapters id give it a frown. This book was good because it needed to be told (squeal of the Love Story). The best part of the book was the last 4 pages, because everything went exactly as I wanted it, hence the 5 stars. and on a side note, it helps increase your vocabulary. Hence the hence.

If you enjoyed Love Story, you will like this sequel. The book is devoted to how Oliver moves on after Jenny's death. Despite what some other reviewers say, you have to read the entire book. For fear of being a plot spoiler, I will not go into great detail but if you quite mid-way, you will not understand how Oliver makes his peace with Jenny's death. Written in the same style as Love Story. Language depicts the 60's-70's. I enjoyed seeing Love Story come full-circle in this sequel.
