The Lover's Dictionary, narrates a couple's romantic relationship, through the male's perspective. The strength of the book comes from its unique form of writing, in which its composed into dictionary entries. While it deals with relationship dilemmas that are universal, the story is not absorbingly unique. Also the ruptured time line of the plot is puzzling and even a bit infuriating. nonetheless, Levithan, delivers an original piece, filled with empathy and warmth.
"love, n? I'm not even going to try."
