Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
May 2005
9 hours 55 minutes
Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices. It has been decades since 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 on a search for answers. The History of Love is an imaginative tale of love and loss that is at once funny, mysterious, and deeply passionate.

This was a very interesting book. I really like that multiple narrators were used throughout the story as it made it easier to understand what was going on and who was talking, especially in the last parts. It was a bit difficult to follow but by the end all the stories intersect in a satisfying way. Give it a listen.
