Erich Segal: Loving Evangelist

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry”…this crux from best ever selling book” Love Story” depicts the beautiful thinking of its creator-Erich Segal who created history by writing this moving phenomenal novel has recently passed away after storming the heart of millions readers. Very straight forward in his delineate approaches, he succeeded to provide a finest romantic engagement in his classic work. Protagonist Oliver Barrett {junior}, a rich teenager from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law and Jenny Cavilleri, hailing from a modest working class beauty studying music at Radcliffe-rest is magnetism and piousness of relationships.

Despite being a non-believer in bandwagon about the qualities of any best selling stuffs, I induced towards the book by superb inference from its few lines-thanks to rich street book markets of Delhi that provided me this micro book which hardly took my three hours in its complete reading. Simplicity is its best merit and compassion is true charm which impulses its readers to go deep inside rather floating while passing through this magical creation of Erich Segal-indeed he was a skilled magician of words and a soul searcher who never allowed his reader to be a fan instead he always succeeded to make them super fans. So far “Love Story” shook the soul of at least two generation as its appeal is non-bonded with any specific time frame or style, its popularity for sure not going to shade in future as well.

Nostalgic accounts of Ivy League’s culture truly broaden its charm among the university dwellers across the world…what Erich Segal conquered in his creative imagination that the meaning of trust and bond of sharing as divine quotient-more important than anything else in this world.Passing off this loving evangelist is a sad occasion for numberless book lovers and believers of sentiments. He was the champion of opposite realities which he always proved in his prolific writing…his literary contribution deserves from all corner to be remembered as pivotal determinant of consine.
