The inspiration for the number-one box office hit film, which was named one of the 100 most romantic films of all time by the American Film Institute.
Meet Oliver Barrett IV, a rich jock from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law, and Jenny Cavilleri, a wisecracking working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe.
Oliver and Jenny - kindred spirits from different worlds ? talk, question, answer and fall for each other so deeply that no one, themselves included, can understand it. So instead of trying to understand it, they embrace it. Until something happens that will turn their new, perfect world upside down.
This is their story: a story of two young people and a love so uncompromising it will bring joy to your heat and tears to your eyes.
