A modern love story told through a series of dictionary-style entries is a sequence of intimate windows into the large and small events that shape the course of a romantic relationship.
I have no idea how to even describe The Lover’s Dictionary. Essentially, it’s a dictionary. But instead of the meaning of each word, it’s a short paragraph describing a scenario,thought or action involving that word. Specially, involving the main character and his lover. Hence, The Lover’s Dictionary is a perfect title.
I’m not going to lie: I have no idea how to review this book. Let me just describe what I liked about it: it was interesting, it was engaging, it made me want to hug the main character. I loved the writing and the plot and the romance and EVERYTHING. David Levithan can write a grocery list, and I’d read it.
(Okay fine, this wasn’t a proper review but let me say this: if the premise above intrigues you and you’re interested in reading something new, try The Lover’s Dictionary. It’s not a long book and I think it’s worth it!)
