Low brow meets high brow in a literary love story. Can an emotionally-stunted literary novelist and a vivacious romance writer find their happily-ever after? Even when she becomes more successful than he? Love Literary Style spoofs romantic comedy tropes, winks at literary pretensions and pokes fun at book publishing.
Like Legally Blonde only in the literary world.
Inspired by the author’s New York Times article “Masters in Chick Lit.” A sparkling romantic comedy for fans of the Rosie Project.
I’m just going to get straight to the point…It was a bit of a difficult read at first, but it was well worth the rough start. My issue wasn’t with the writing, I just wanted to punch Aaron Mite in the face a few times in the first chapter. He’s quite a jerk. However, with that aside, I love a book that can keep you intrigued with a good story-line, but also challenges you a bit as a reader. This book did just that! It taught me quite a few new vocabulary words (full disclosure, I had to break the dictionary out more than once), and that is honestly one of the things I enjoyed about it. I thought the story-line was extremely clever and had several unexpected twists. Plus, I really enjoyed the character development and having the opportunity to watch them grow and learn from each other. It was a really great experience and it left me feeling satisfied with the ending. This is only missing half a star, simply because I don’t know of many people that will come across an abundance of words that they aren’t familiar with and think to look them up, I feel like it may affect some people’s ability to enjoy/get involved with the story and characters. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
