With all the excitement and emotion that made Love Story a worldwide best-seller, here is a stirring romantic novel that sweeps from New York's fashionable East Side to a snowy Christmas in Massachusetts to a shattering moment of truth in exotic Hong Kong--the story of one young man's journey out of sadness and into love.

Oliver's Story is just as good, if not better than its predecessor "Love Story".
We learn so much more about who Oliver is as a person both physically and emotionally. It's great to see the relationship between Oliver and his dad develop in this book. Moreover, Oliver's willingness to pursue new romantic relationships post Jenny really gets to the heart of this tale.

I love this book! Always wanted to own it and finally I do now! Little gift from me to myself! Thank you! One person found this helpful. Got it for my Mother for Christmas, she's told me all about this book and how she loved it, wishing she could find it again. It's in great condition and I'm pleased, will download from this seller again. This book was a great follow to Love Story. Erich Segal seems to know exactly what I'd want in a woman; every time I finish one of his novels I wish there were more.
I own both this and it's predecessor. One turns the pages without a break, absorbing, humorous and touching segal does it again unstoppable book and time less. Loved the writing style. The story made perfect sense and I haven't read Love Story since the 70's.

Satu pemicu kecil saja bisa membangkitkan ingatan yang kita pikir sudah tidak ada, tapi ternyata masih sanggup menghantui seluruh indera yang kita punya. Beberapa kali, hal itu masih terjadi. Kalau pada akhirnya Ollie masih belum jadi sama siapa-siapa, sebenernya kisah itu tidak berhenti sampai disitu. Banyak yang kecewa kenapa endingnya ngga sesuai harapan. Terus ngapain juga itu rangkuman semua tokoh-tokoh yang pernah ada di buku kedua ditaruh di belakang?
Seakan-akan si penulis ngga mau lagi meneruskan kisah hidup Ollie dan pencariannya? Apakah tidak akan ada happy ending lagi buat Ollie? Apa selamanya ia akan terkungkung oleh kenangan Jenny yang tidak bisa pergi dan tergantikan? Mungkin juga. Mungkin si penulis ngga mau manjang-manjangin penderitaan si Ollie.
Biar deh dia hidup di imajinasi para pembacanya aja. Toh setiap hari baru di dunia Oliver Barret IV akan membawa cerita yang juga baru untuknya. Jadi biarkan hari-hari baru itu terus berputar abadi di kepala para pecinta Ollie dan alm. Mungkin begitu. Mungkin juga karena si penulis memang ingin menyampaikan sedikit kesan yang lebih realistis. Tidak selalu ada akhir yang bahagia untuk semua orang. Mungkin bagi Ollie, bagaimana mungkin dia bisa mendapatkan lagi yang lebih baik, saat dia sebenarnya sudah pernah mendapatkan yang terbaik, dan bagian terbaik itu direnggut paksa dari hidupnya?
Dan itulah pesan yang tersampaikan dari kisah ini. We were once loved and so lucky, weren't we, Ollie? Tapi tadi baru kepikiran aja di perjalanan menuju kantor, tentang salah satu tokoh yang sebenarnya memegang peranan penting di buku ini: Yang gue rasakan sih sebenernya setiap orang itu pasti punya kebutuhan untuk curhat.
Walopun kadang kadarnya berbeda-beda, curhat official atau yang sekedar colongan. Colongan yang keceplosan maupun yang sengaja aja dicolong-colong dimana suka kayak gue gitu deh. Begitu juga yang terjadi sama Ollie disini. Butuh hampir 2 tahun buat dia untuk memahami bahwa sebenarnya dia butuh bantuan untuk mengenali kembali apa yang dia rasa. Abis patah hati itu bikin kita berasa numb sih. Kalo dibiarin, bisa-bisa bikin kita merasa skeptis sama suatu hubungan.
Eh tapi ngga semua orang kayak gini juga kali ya. Mungkin aja Ollie, atau gue, yang terlalu dalem. Cuma ya itu tadi.
Di buku ini diceritain banget betapa Ollie meraba-raba lagi, berusaha mengenali lagi apa yang dia rasa. Cinta apa bukan nih? Fling apa beneran naksir nih? Ah ngga ada excitementnya, bukannya suka.
Ah, gue ngga mau menggantungkan harapan terlalu tinggi. Bukan takut kecewa sih, tapi belum bisa aja.. Oh gue juga gitu kok. Malahan beberapa temen deket gue paksa untuk jadi psikiater pribadi terselubung. Jadinya, mereka yang bisa membaca dan mengenali apa yang lagi gue rasakan.
Sementara gue sendiri malah ngga ngga bisa menerjemahkan perasaan, kemauan, dan kebutuhan gue pada saat itu. Yea, I guess I was that numb. View all 3 comments. Apr 21, Aditi rated it it was ok Shelves: If you hear bells, get your ears checked. Yes Love Story ended off with Jenny's death leaving Oliver miserable and lonely for the rest of his life.
In Love Story, we saw how perfectly Oliver and Jennifer fell in love with each other, and even more perfect when they started living together. But not for very long, Oliver's soul mate, Jenny was taken away from him. This book was in very possible way amazing and "True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. But in Oliver's Story, there is no love story. It's a book telling us that what has become of Oliver, how's he's coping up with his only soul mate's death. Then comes Jenny's dad, who thinks Oliver is miserable and lonely and advises him to date women.
But here we can see a change in Oliver's character, he has become more and more impulsive and annoying.
He judges every women with Jenny. Then enters Marcie Binnendale in his life, since he didn't know a thing about her, he starts stalking her. Anyways, he found out that she is the heir of the Binnendale chain of department stores. They started dating, but I'm sue you won't feel a thing, as you felt while reading about Oliver and Jenny's date.
Then one day Marcie takes Oliver to China to her chain's manufacturing office. Then suddenly Oliver takes out his anger on Marcie, the reason being the use of cheap labor, that's all, the end of their cute romantic relationship! Think just because of cheap labor, their relationship ended.
Anyways this proves that love can happen only once and Oliver never stopped loving Jenny. This book might not draw a mark in the reader's minds. I would also be alive. So it justifies his love for Jenny. But this after-life of Oliver's story was way too moving and emotional. Readers will feel his plight just after reading two pages only.
It's not that bad, now if you've read Love Story, then definitely you should read this one. Meni je to bilo dovoljno. Feb 24, Il confine dei libri rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ciao readers. Oggi questa CE ci ha regalato una nuova chicca: Oliver sta affrontando la vita dopo la perdita del suo grande amore, Jenny.
Nonostante viene spronato a guardare avanti, non riesce a vedere nessuna accanto a lui. Dopo l'iniziale inamicizia con una donna che sembra divertirsi nel prenderlo in giro, i due iniziano a conoscersi. Il sangue scorre in quella che era una statua. Viene spronato a reagire dal suo ex suocero, che lo spinge a conoscere altre donne. Ho trovato questo comportamento davvero bello. Ma per quanto Oliver sappia che deve andare avanti non ne sente l'esigenza.
Pian piano questa donna riesce a smuoverlo dentro e a fargli provare di nuovo delle emozioni. Ha molto da affrontare e da chiarire per potersi riappacificare con se stesso. Ho sperato potesse trovate l'amore, ma infine si palesa che ha bisogno di tornare ad amare se stesso. Quando era necessario uscire per impegni o lavoro avevo come unico pensiero quello di tornare a casa per poter leggere in santa pace.
Di immergermi di nuovo in queste emozioni forti che non ti lasciano in pace nemmeno dopo aver concluso la storia. Mi sembra giusto che voi leggiate questo libro. Non perdetelo.
Buona lettura. Mar 08, Lucrug rated it really liked it. Oliver ,per chi non ha letto "love story", e' il marito di Jenny. Un uomo che combatte per i suoi ideali e che convive con il suo dolore. E mi rispondo ,sarei vivo anch'io" Baca buku ini verasa muda banget gw. Berhubung ngga ngerti kek gimana maksud kejadian kejadian internasional yang mengiringi ceritanya..

I may sound harsh, but it was just not to my liking! Tip to future readers: Refrain from perusing this and be c If it wasn't for this last line- "sometimes I ask myself what I would be if Jenny were alive.
Refrain from perusing this and be content with"Love Story"! Nov 11, Shonali rated it it was ok Shelves: Things I liked about this book: Some books have that kind of impact but I had definitely expected something atleast close to the first book. I was throughly disappointed. The book fell short on reasoning and realism.
He was too much in love with his first wife Jenny , granted. All he does is try to find her in Marcie. I would have left the book within a few pages , had it not been for the curiosity of knowing what happens to Oliver eventually. Wrong decision Shona. Should have left the book at the time I thought I had enough of over the board romance and cheesy emotions: Take my advice , go read Love Story and forget that the book has any sequel.
On my rating scale: Oct 05, Vanessa rated it liked it. I inevitably had to read the sequel to Love Story after I wiped up the last snot bubble from reading the first book. It's two years later and Oliver has met someone else. And she's another WASP this time. But this isn't a callow attempt to write a belated fairy tale ending for Oliver, and I admire Segal for making that choice.

I'll just leave it at that. I never saw the movie version of this. Why do I feel like my streaming video plans for this evening were just decided?
Jun 05, Camille Eugenio rated it it was amazing. I've been putting off this book for awhile now. Just because I'd love Jenny and Oliver so much from the first book, and I believed they've had this one great true love, that, reading a journey to love again for Oliver after that, feels like too much of a betrayal to Jenny.
However I just needed to read it. See my dilemma? You want to read a book, but you're just to afraid to read it. You know what I mean? And so now, after having read the book, here I am, just contemplating everything.
It's 1 am I've been putting off this book for awhile now. It's 1 am and I'm just babbling about it. I could probably write a page essay about it! So I started reading, and it was like walking on Oliver's shoes. I felt everything, his grief, his anger, his hope, his loneliness, everything, and I've never felt like that to any other character before. Sometimes I get confused as to why certain characters to the things they do.
But with Oliver, I was with him the entire time. When he recounted memories of Jenny I drowned in his longing because I was longing too. This is a testament to how much I fell in love with Love Story, because it stayed with me all through out this book. I'm great believer that in life you only find ONE and true love, that would stay with you throughout eternity and the loves that come before or after that, just doesn't even compare. I think this is why the author wrote this sequel.
The epic love Jenny and Oliver had, I knew for certain, and then at the end it didn't disappoint. And now for some reason makes me want to break my heart again, by reading the story they had in Love Story.
It's crazy how books as inanimate as they are, evokes such emotions out from you. Nov 16, Theresia rated it liked it Shelves: Oliver's Story Penulis: Erich Segal Penerbit: Gramedia Pustaka Utama Tebal: Diberi judul Oliver's Story karena sungguh berisikan petualangan hidup Oliver setelah ditinggal Jennifer Cavilleri, istrinya.
Philip ayah Jenny, kedua orangtua Oliver, Anita sekretaris Oliver di kantor, dan Marcie Binnendale wanita yang paling dekat dengan Oliver sepanjang cerita. Penulis mampu menyampaikan maksud cerita dengan tepat melalui pikiran Oliver dan dialog para tokoh. Dec 01, Farozan rated it really liked it. I wonder why Segal wrote a sequel to Love Story since the first book was just perfect by itself.
Having said that comparing this with Love Story would not be right since this book is not a love story. While it is romantic in a way, I do not think it is about love. While Oliver's Story was annoying to a great extent, I kind of understood his journey of trying to overcome his grief and loss and finding acceptance. Still trying to make up my end if I liked the boo I wonder why Segal wrote a sequel to Love Story since the first book was just perfect by itself. Still trying to make up my end if I liked the book or not.
Jul 26, Jim rated it really liked it Shelves: This was an excellent sequel to Love Story. It's well done, especially his relationship with his father. It especially meant a lot to me, having raised a couple of boys myself.
Sep 22, Clara rated it liked it Shelves: The characters in the sequel to "love story" are deeper, darker and more interesting.
Also because it's mostly a book about loneliness, it won't make you feel so good in the end. For all those reasons and others, I liked it.
Apr 08, Whitebeard Books rated it really liked it Shelves: Finally after all these years I got around to reading this sappy sweet story from the other point of view.
Okay, so a part of me is sappy and I loved the original and even enjoyed this one as well. Lanjutan dari buku Love Story. Review ini sedikit banyak berbau pribadi, berbau curhat, subjektif banget karena saya pernah melihat kisah cinta yang mirip seperti Jenny-Oliver walau nggak sama persis plek. Kesamaannya adalah ditinggal orang yang dicintai untuk selama-lamanya.
Jadi jangan berharap mendapatkan review yang objektif, emang kayak apa sih review yang objektif itu? Saya akui, tidak mudah move on dari orang yang sudah bertahun-tahun menemani kita, dan ketika membaca buku ini sa Lanjutan dari buku Love Story. Saya akui, tidak mudah move on dari orang yang sudah bertahun-tahun menemani kita, dan ketika membaca buku ini saya nyesek sekali.
Saya merasa nggak adil buat Jenny, lebih nggak adil lagi buat Oliver yang harus bersusah payah menata hatinya untuk orang baru. Semua orang terdekatnya pasti ingin Oliver bahagia, membuka lembaran baru dan mencoba mancari pengganti Jenny. Melupakan memang tidak semudah membalik tangan.
Oliver bahkan membutuhkan dr, London untuk berbagi cerita hidupnya, bagaimana dia tidak bisa lepas dari Jenny sampai berkenalan dengan Marcie Nash, wanita kaya raya yang awal keberadaannya sangat misterius. Cinta kedua Ollie. Itulah sebabnya aku menjadi panik dan lari. Karena dengan hampir menyukai seseorang lain, aku merasa berlaku tak setia pada satu-satunya gadis yang pernah kucintai. Tapi berapa lama lagi aku bisa hidup seperti ini, selamanya berjaga-jaga supaya perasaan manusiawiku tidak tergugah?
Sekarang jelas sekali, keadaanku sangat kacau. Dan aku diombang-ambingkan oleh dua persoalan. Bagaimana caraku menangani kenangan tentang Jenny? Bagaimana caraku menemukan Marcie Nash? Saya lebih suka buku kedua ini, emosinya kerasa sekali dan nggak buru-buru seperti Love Story, alurnya masih cepat, hubungan yang terjalin antara Oliver-Marcie pun terjalin nggak seburu-buru Oliver-Jenny.
Sarkasme Ollie masih tetap sama, walaupun sedih dia tetap bisa berkata menyindir yang membuat tertawa. Saya mengganggap Marcie 'jelmaannya' Jenny karena menurut saya karakter mereka berdua mirip, wanita yang kuat dan hampir sama juga degan karakter Ollie yang sinis. Melihat Ollie menemukan orang baru jujur saja membuat saya sakit, saya mrebes mili baca ini, tidak ingin Jenny digantikan, memang sangat tidak adil bagi Ollie padahal dia orang yang paling terluka.
Sama ketika saya melihat orang yang saya kenal secara nyata juga mengambil langkah seperti Ollie, saya ingin dia terus setia dengan pasangan yang sudah meninggalkannya.
Tapi saya sadar kalau saya seperti itu saya egois sekali.

Sulit sekali menerima orang baru, orang yang mulai disayang, kembali ke awal, tidak ingin yang sudah meninggal dilupakan. Haduh, saya nulis review ini aja mrebes mili. Tapi apakah tidak ada kesempatan untuk merasakan bahagia lagi? Saya mulai melawan ego saya, mencoba menerima sedikit demi sedikit kalau saya tidak boleh egois, saya harus 'legowo', saya harus lebih mementingkan perasaan orang yang ingin bangkit itu mencoba mencintai sekali lagi. Dia berhak bahagia, dan saya percaya yang meninggalkan selama-lamanya itu juga akan bahagia kalau melihat orang yang kita cintai bahagia.
Itulah yang saya rasakan ketika membaca buku ini, sedikit demi sedikit saya mencoba menerima keputusan Olliever, sakit tapi akan ada yang lebih sakit lagi kalau masih melihat kebelakang.
Bagian yang paling nyesek di buku ini adalah: Mungkin hal itu terjadi karena aku terlalu membesar-besarkan harapanku. Aku tak sabaran. Orang yang pernah menikah dengan bahagia tahu persis apa yang mereka butuhkan, dan yang tak dibutuhkan. Tapi tak adil menuntut seseorang yang belum pernah mempunyai seorang Meskipun demikian, kuharap suatu hari kelak dia lebih membutuhkan aku.
Dan bahkan terjaga dari tidurnya dan bertanya padaku: Bagaimana endingnya? Happy ending atau sad ending? Yang jelas saya merasa lega, dan persetan! Buku ini saya rekomendasika bagi yang susah move on. Mar 21, Sundeep Supertramp rated it really liked it. First of all, I ask all the readers to complete erase the expectations you have on this book.
This one is good the way it is. Don't, don't and don't even try to compare this one with the first one Love Story. Let me start with a praise for Erich Segal. He is a very rare story teller.
To be frank, the best thing about his books atleast for me is the lesser words density per page. I, being slow reader, can complete a page in about 30 seconds. Thats the good thing about the print.
About the story First of all, I ask all the readers to complete erase the expectations you have on this book. About the story: As far as for me, this is the perfect end any story like Love Story could ever have. I repeat once again, if you want to really appreciate this part of the story, dont expect any thing. You won't be liking this story if you compare with the first one.Please be aware that the delivery time frame may vary according to the area of delivery and due to various reasons, the delivery may take longer than the original estimated timeframe.
