The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan

The Lover's Dictionary - David Levithan

Unique, adj.

Particularly remarkable, special, or unusual. 

That's the only word I can come up with after reading the book. I really adore the way the story is presented for it's a love story and a dictionary at the same time. It is written in a dictionary format and comprised of short vignettes. The words are so clever, enchanting and well defined to connect to the story. 

I find myself enjoying the nameless-main-character-who-remained-anonymous-throughout-the-whole-story's honesty. Like:

grimace, n.

Yes, I keep the water next to the bed in case I get thirsty at night. But it's also for the morning, so you can take a sip before you kiss me. 

Levithan's honest portrayal of all the facets, emotions and complications in a relationship is fascinating and that kept me going into devouring this book.

Overall, it is a quick and emotional read since the story is full of love and pain and anyone can relate to the story (although I admit that I, myself, am no expert in the field of love.)
