I'm not a contemporary reader, but have to say that I really enjoyed Love Story.
Out of the whole book my favorite parts were when Erin and Hunter shared their stories in class. Both writing about each other and looking at it differently. "She's writing about him. he's writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines... " describes this book perfectly. What I didn't know about was the strong back story. Erin and Hunter's history go way deeper than what I was expecting.
I LOVE the settings. Freshman college students in New York and then them going back to Kentucky with the horses and the beautiful land. It was really nice reading about college students instead of high school students. They aren't officially adults, but it shows the life Erin has to go through to survive without her grandma's money.
The characters were very interesting. I found that I really liked Erin's character because she was stubborn and often defensive. Those were some real qualities in someone that I really enjoyed reading about. Plus she had a really neat dream to become a writer and that she loved to read. Hunter on the other hand was a bit questionable. I didn't feel like I knew him and I could have cared less with what he did. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy those Hunter moments, but I just couldn't put a finger on who he is.
The writing was really great and very easy. The chemistry between Hunter and Erin were one of the reasons I stayed up all night and woke up early in the morning to finish this book. Love Story was my first Jennifer Echols book, but it's definitely not going to be my last.
Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5
