It has been decades since Leo Leo Gursky first surrendered his heart, then wrote a book about it--at the tender age of 10--and he's been in love with the same person ever since. Leo believes his book is lost to time, but what he doesn't know is, not only has it survived 60 years without him, it has also been an inspiration to others. Fourteen-year-old Alma was even named for a character from the book. When she realizes how deeply the story touched her lonely mother, she embarks upon a search for answers.… (lisätietoja)

This book is the best book I have ever read and I have read a lot of books. I love how the author makes it seem as though she was letting you in on little secrets in the chapters. It was an amazing book. That’s all there is to say. ( )

Nicole Krauss's THE HISTORY OF LOVE (2005), is a complex, yet simple coming-of-age tale of young love, love foiled, love lost and more. Stretching from prewar Poland to today's New York City, the storyline can be quite confusing in the way its point of view keeps shifting between characters, but eventually the stories of fatherless fourteen year-old Alma Singer and lonely octogenarian Leo Gursky converge in the most heartbreakingly beautiful conclusion a reader could wish for. I thoroughly enjoyed this award-winning, much praised novel. Very highly recommended.

My first encounter with this book wasn't really nice. Almost five years ago, I was completing my undergraduate studies and at some point in time I, with two of my friends, decided to go to the bookstore to unwind. One of my friends asked the bookseller if they had a copy of The History of Love. I didn't hear what she said or what the bookseller told her so I asked what was she looking for. I still remember the disappointment on her face when she said they didn't have a copy of The History of Love. Out of stock, they said. She read somewhere that it was a beautiful book. I, on the other hand, scoffed, appalled, because the title seemed to me something Nicholas Sparks had written. It was saccharine to my ears. My face contorted to a disgusted expression. I left it at that and we left the bookstore.

Fast forward to a month ago whilst I was roaming around another bookstore I saw this in one of the shelves. It reminded me of my friend who at the present was planning her wedding. I didn’t know what pushed me to buy this book but I would like to think the thought of my friend alone did. I was really grateful for that. I would like to think that in sudden sentimentality we find unexpected fondness towards things we haven't thought of twice. Moreover, things we initially did not like.
---
History of Love is indeed a beautiful book. It is arguably one of the most intimate books I have ever read. It is a revelation. I admit it very unfair of me to put it in the same level as Nicholas Sparks' works. What this book has given me in exchange of my unfounded assumption is love; a love that transcends time through memories and fiction. It doesn't shy away from the human condition and instead gives it to you until you take it wholeheartedly. It perceives life for what it is; we try to figure it out until the end without knowing what we ought to figure out in the first place. It reminds us that a memory is both a friend and an enemy.

Krauss' vivid characters complements her gripping, wonderful, and intriguing writing style. How her characters' lives are bound together by another character's work of fiction, which I did not expect until almost halfway through the book, is what made it all the more special and poignant. When I finished the book I thought about the hidden truth about one of the characters' work of fiction and Kiarostami's film, Certified Copy, came to mind. He has put it well when he said, ** "When we fall in love, we see everything as an original. We're the ones pulling the wool over our own eyes. We inflate the value so much, and add zeroes to it, that we can't afford it ourselves. Then when we can't pay the price, we start eliminating, one by one, the zeroes on the price tag. We discount the price. Then we arrive at the truth. Access to the original is out of reach for many of us. Therefore, we should value and appreciate a copy." I would like to believe that the love we give, no matter how much time has gone and the amount of people who have received it, trampled it, and returned it our capacity to give it again doesn't diminish.
I believe The History of Love is one of those books that make you discover something new every time you reread. I guess the only gripe I have is how it could jump from one chapter to another quite quickly and the amount of Jewish words I translated (it is also a learning), and how I failed to finish it in one-sitting because I had to go to work (not the book’s fault).

** "Sometimes I thought about nothing and sometimes I thought about my life. At least I made a living. What kind of living? A living. I lived. It wasn't easy. And yet. I found out how little is unbearable." (p224)

Life is painful, also joyous. It is also nonsensical. But don’t forget it is hopeful. It can be long yet it can be loving. We eventually learn how to love it back. And what each of us can do is to live it the best way we possibly can. ( )

Beautifully written. I got a little confused partway through (the point of view shifts in a way that makes the plot and characters hard to follow at times), so I knocked off a star for that. However, I enjoyed the writing so much that I continued reading until the end.

There are so many quotes and passages I liked, I could spend ages typing them. Instead I'll just type out one that happened to be at my fingertips:

"At times I believed that the last page of my book and the last page of my life were one and the same, that when my book ended I'd end, a great wind would sweep through my rooms carrying the pages away, and when the air cleared of all those fluttering white sheets the room would be silent, the chair where I sat would be empty."

Here's one more:
"...'the insoluble contradiction of being animals cursed with self-reflection, and moral beings cursed with animal instincts.'" ( )

Beskrivelse:
I en nedslitt leilighet i New York prøver Leo Gursky å overleve litt til. Hver kveld banker han på radiatoren for at naboen over skal høre at han fortsatt lever.Men livet hans har ikke alltid vært slik. For seksti år siden bodde han hjemme i Polen, der han forelsket seg og skrev en bok. Kjæresten mistet han da hun flyktet til Amerika rett før krigen. Boken ble også borte. Men uten at han selv er klar over det, har den overlevd: Den har krysset hav, blitt overlevert mellom generasjoner, og forandret liv. Fjorten år gamle Alma er oppkalt etter en person i denne boken. Etter at faren hennes døde, er hun fullt opptatt med å finne en ny kjæreste til moren, holde styr på en lillebror som tror han er Messias, og ta utførlige notater i et hefte hun kaller Hvordan overleve i villmarken, Bind tre. En dag dukker det opp et mystisk brev i posten, og Alma begir seg ut på jakt etter sin navnesøster.Personene i Kjærlighetens historie er mennesker man blir glad i. Hver for seg sysler de med gåter som på bemerkelsesverdig vis er forbundet med hverandre. Nicole Krauss har skrevet en medrivende og imponerende sammensatt roman om mennesker som har blitt avkuttet fra sin fortid, og som på hver sin pussige, rørende måte forsøker å få livet til å henge sammen.

A thought crossed his face in a language I didn’t understand.
It’s also true that sometimes people felt things and because there was no word for them, they went unmentioned.  The oldest emotion in the world may be that of being moved, but to describe it and just to name it – must have been like trying to catch something invisible.
Maybe this is how I'll go, in a fit of laughter, what could be better, laughing and crying, laughing and singing, laughing so as to forget that I am alone, that it is the end of my life, that death is waiting outside the door for me.
The truth was I'd given up waiting long ago. The moment had passed, the door between the lives we could have led and the lives we led had shut in our faces. Or better to say, in my face.
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
