Review: The History of Love

The History of Love The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my second book by author Nicole Krauss. As in the first one (Great House), we have several stories that are connected between them: A young boy during the war, who emigrates to New York, a Jewish writer in Chile, a young girl also in NY. And a book called "The History of Love"

The story is told in different voices: Leo Gursky, the old man who is waiting for death; Alma Singer, the young girl who is just starting to live; Alma's mother reading from the book.

This book is about life and death, of people that barely escaped it and how it made them stronger, but sadder. And of course it's about love: Leo's love for the woman he wrote his book, Alma's mother love for her husband, Alma's love for her family.
