The Lover's Dictionary

A book about love on a day about love. Fitting, no? The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan was recommended on one of the book blogs I read, Lovely Little Shelf. I wasn't sure what to expect but it truly is a dictionary of sorts. Levithan writes of a relationship between two unnamed people using very specifically chosen words to describe what passed between them. There are vignettes to define each word that will make you laugh or make you sad. Very clever.

This was a small, fast read for logophiles. Even if you are not a lover of words, you might enjoy this all the same. It had a great flow to it which I really appreciated. Sorry about this short review for an even shorter book.
