Sunday Book Club: The History of Love


This book is so adorable, I can’t even stand it.  I loved it.  Easy to read, easy to follow plot, and well-developed and likable characters.

The book is written as a story-within-a-story.  Basic characters who don’t seem to have any relationship come together at the end.  The book ends in a satisfactory way.

I adored one of the main characters, Leo.  He is kind, he is crazy, he is understanding, he is a good man.  He is lonely.  You fall in love with him immediately. The first story follows him and his life.

The second story follows a young girl named Alma, who lives with her mother and brother.  Her father died, and she is obsessed with him.  Through a series of unlikely and strange events, she find her life intertwined with Leo’s, in a very sweet and endearing way.

Another well-written fast read.  It was made into a movie in 2016, but I didn’t watch it or see too much about it.

Next week’s book:  Skippy Dies by Paul Murray.  I LOVED THIS BOOK!!  This was definitely my favorite book of the summer.  Here’s a hint: Skippy dies.
