I read this book ten years ago, and it's remains my favorite book to this day. What a beautiful story mixed with humor, heartbreak, and lessons of enduring love. Indeed, it's an intricate book that alternates between and weaves multiple storylines. Some reviewers say it's confusing and don't like the bouncing around, but I believe it adds an important element to the book. The effect is that it keeps you looking forward to see how each storyline and character progresses and guessing how they will ultimately link together. There's a feeling of great satisfaction when it starts coming together, and it does so beautifully. It was recently made into a movie that's showing in Europe, not sure when or if it will run in America. The format of the book doesn't seem like it would lend easily to a movie, and from the reviews I've read, there is a confusing element to it with the multiple stories.

Normally my go to reading scale is that if a book makes me cry, then it's 5 stars.

This book is an exception to this rule.

While the writing was gorgeous, moving, funny, and absolutely quotable, I found myself sometimes lost in what was actually happening. This was especially true in the excerpts from the book that supposedly spawned all of the events. The passages were dense, lyrical, confusing, and didn't seem to have a point other than to be beautiful. I kept going back and rereading them thinking that I would find the point, but then eventually I just had to resign myself to push on and accept that not every part of this book would make complete sense to me.

Bird and his sister Alma were my favorite characters in the book. The way the Krauss told their story through their unique voices really touched me. I can't quite put my finger on why the writing in this novel moved me, but it just did.

Check this one out! I certainly enjoyed it, despite it's issues.

This is the fourth or fifth time I'm reading The History of Love. First, Nicole Krauss is an excellent writer. I believe the first paragraph of this book is the best one I've ever read. Usually, when I reach the last ten pages, it takes me forever to finish the book because I don't want it to end. The humor, the humanity, the characters are wonderful. I definitely recommend it, read it not once, but several times. Each time the reading offers more and more surprises.

This book is not for the impatient reader. You won't want to rush through it. You may need to stop at times and think about where a previous story line left off. And instead of being annoyed, you'll be entranced by the layers and flow.

This is a beautiful story that deliciously, and often heart-breakingly, weaves past and present. I laughed, cried, feared, mourned, and loved, right along with each character. It's the kind of book I like to read over many days, a little at a time, to savor and digest.

"If you don't know what it feels like to have someone you love put a hand below your bottom rib for the first time, what chance is there for love?"

What a reading experience! I went into this book knowing absolutely nothing about its premise. All I knew was that it is highly regarded by many of my Goodreads friends. What you should know is that right after I finished reading it, I spent the rest of the day rereading and underlining passages and clues I might have overlooked. Did you find yourself doing the same thing after watching The Sixth Sense for the first time? Don't lie!

This book is a compelling, heartwarming study of loneliness, loss and adolescence. At least ten to fifteen characters are inadvertently drawn together by a book published soon after World War II called The History of Love. The mystery behind its author and publication, and the different lives it touches up to present day unfold in a series of personal journal entries. Central to the novel are a group of teenagers who each survive and/or escape the Nazi occupation of Poland only to find the overwhelming loneliness and grief that awaits them when they attempt to "start over."

I guess it depends on what you're going through at the moment, but this book just made my heart hurt so much. Not enough to cry, but enough to remind me that I am human, and that we all have personal circumstances that we're struggling to overcome. Sometimes one good day in a gloomy month is so precious that we dread the setting of the sun. The more I think about it, the more questions I have. Love is such a complex thing, whether it's fufilled, reciprocated, or never comes to fruition...it can be the thing that pushes us forward and makes us get out of bed every morning. That is pretty powerful, and Krauss did a magnificent job of relaying that message.

This book was quite confusing read on a Kindle app for iPhone. There are different writers voices and I suspect that in the hard copy there is some way to tell which one is writing but on the Kindle app they all appear the same so it is totally confusing as to who it is who is speaking and from where and what time period. I got pretty much confused and tired of trying to figure it out so I decided to quit half way. It might be much more interesting if one could keep things straight.

Again we are reminded the victims of the nazi's are victims their whole lives including in death. They seem dead even when living for there is no escape from the suffering they incurred to find a life worth living. Well done. Thanks for the wonderful story also including the young children trying to find peace in their father's death at a young age. Your heart breaks for them searching for love. I appreciate the way you tied it all together with the "history of love".
