Love Story by Erich Segal
Oliver Barrett IV, a wealthy jock from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law . . . Jenny Cavilleri, a sharp-tongued, working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe . . .
Opposites in nearly every way, Oliver and Jenny are kindred spirits from vastly different worlds. Falling deeply and powerfully, their attraction to one another defies everything they have ever believed—as they share a passion far greater than anything they dreamed possible . . . and explore the wonder of a love that must end too soon.
One of the most adored novels of our time, this is the book that defined a generation—a story of uncompromising devotion, of life as it really is . . . and love that changes everything.
Fall in love with Love Story
I was looking everywhere for Jenny. Had she left and walked all the way back to Radcliffe alone?
I took three or four steps away from fans, searching desperately. Suddenly she popped out from behind a bush, her face swathed in a scarf, only her eyes showing.
“Hey, Preppie, it’s cold as hell out here.”
Was I glad to see her!
Like instinctively, I kissed her lightly on the forehead.
“Did I say you could?” she said.
“Did I say you could kiss me?”
“Sorry, I was carried away.”
We were pretty much all alone out there, and it was dark and cold and late. I kissed her again. But not on the forehead, and not lightly. It lasted a long nice time. When we stopped kissing, she was still holding on to my sleeves.
“I don’t like it,” she said.
“The fact that I like it.”
