Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 9 May 1999
Format: Paperback
I've never really been one for Love Stories, and I avoided Erich Segal like the plague.. well I really missed out on something wonderful for a very long time. Richard Bach first showed me that a love story can be very interesting reading. Segal showed me how well it can be written. Man Woman and Child is one of the best books I have read, ever. What I loved the most was the crispness of the book. It took me about an hour to finish the book. It's been ages since I finished a book so fast. And it's a great thing, because this is one book you DON'T want to leave halfway. Sheila Beckwith is a beautifully sketched character. You can't help it, your heart goes out to her. The most striking thing is the realism. How can an author get into the minds of his characters, and be so realistic about it. I honestly didn't see the real need to bring in Dr. Gavin Wilson. If you think he was really essential to the story, please tell me why. I would have rather had Sheila not bothered by temptation, but then I am an idealist. I think this book really brings out what most men secretly believe, Fidelity. And more than that it reassures that Love really does supersede everything else. You can beat anything, as long as there's love. Great Book.. If you haven't read it yet, READ IT!

By A Customer on 14 Jun. 1997
Format: Paperback
For those who found 'Love Story' incredibly mushy, this book (M,W and C) might just serve to restore your faith in Erich Segal's writing abilities. I consider it Segal's best book.

From the first page when the protagonist learns about a son he never knew existed till the denouement, the story moves rapidly.

The characters are very believable. Bob Beckwith is not a very sharply defined protagonist - he seems to be always reacting to others' actions than initiating any on his own. But Sheila Beckwith is much more appealing than her counterpart Jenny in 'Love Story'. The characters of the Beckwiths' two precocious daughters is also well drawn.

The dialogues are vintage Segal - crisp and memorable. Segal is one of the few writers of this type of fiction who uses four and five syllable words so regularly. He has done a lot to enhance my vocabulary. :)

All in all, a very satisfying read.

Format: Paperback
Great writing style, as always with Segal, but the story's a bit far-fetched. It feels as though Segal's story has simplified a very complex and difficult situation, involving infidelity in marriage. However, he's a great storyteller, always a good read & I enjoyed it, but nothing's as good as "Love Story".
