    Taking a unique approach to this problem, the nameless narrator of David Levithan's The Lover's Dictionary has constructed the story of his relationship as a dictionary. This practice has continued to the present day, and there are rule books about poker and numerous other games, all invoking the authority of Hoyle, who died long before these games were invented. The author has that firmly under control. At least around here. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.

    David Levithan makes every word count. I couldn't believe one person could own so many shoes, and still buy new ones every year" and annoying " belittle, v. A story that you just aren't ever sure you've gotten enough of to figure out. Do we even have the right words to describe something that can be both utterly mundane and completely transcendent, pulling us out of our everyday lives and making us feel a part of something greater than ourselves?

    Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. Inherent in such an endeavor is an adorableness thankfully grounded by Levithan's wit. And plow through your book. Not your usual novel.

The Lovers dictionary book

Like halcyon. I really can't take it …". No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough. For that matter, how can you have the one without the other? Thus, whether it should or not, the "zenith" of our protagonists' relationship falls at the end, while the epilogue falls … halfway through the story.

Taking a unique approach to this problem, the nameless narrator of David Levithan's The Lover's Dictionary has constructed the story of his relationship as a dictionary. For me, Leviathan is a lazy writer.

You might want to spend your time inside reading. But I was stumped on a few. David Levithan makes every word count. The curious thing about the alphabet is that, like love, it has its own logic.

It all depends on how you read it. Levithan is a generous, warm-hearted writer, and his conceit feels original, a brave way of articulating the fictions we create for ourselves in relationships.

Happily, the order of the alphabet does not dictate the order of the story, which moves backward and forward in time. Through these sharp entries, he provides an intimate window into the great events and quotidian trifles of coupledom, giving us an indelible and deeply moving portrait of love in our time.

This story is presented a small tidbit at a time. The day reminds us the importance of love and so I rate this book with 2 stars. She lives in Lexington, Massachusetts. It stands the distance, ready for whenever you want it back.
