Love story by Erich Segal is a love story as the name suggests which has been made into a block buster with the same name and is also been re made in Bollywood [Indian film industry] with the name “Kwahish”. Although the hindi movie was a flop and not at all upto the mark of the original works.
The book is a small one and once started i could not think of putting it down. I read it in just two sittings. The story is so loving and so much passionate that i even felt like crying. I just would wait till the end of my life for such love.
