Book Review: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told

By Melissa Amster


The funniest, happiest, saddest, happiest romantic comedy you will ever read. With a small twist!

What’s the 'small' twist? You’ll have to read it to find out. But let’s just say, you’ve never read anything like this before.

WARNING: Be prepared for many happy tears. And a lot of laughter.

For fans of:

Jojo Moyes, Cecelia Ahern, Sophie Kinsella and Nick Spalding


This story is not what I was expecting, but given the synopsis is vague, everyone is bound to be surprised. I did not cry, but I rarely ever cry for books. And when I do, it's usually just some misty-eye stuff. Having said that, this was still a great book and I keep thinking about it at random times. 

Callum and Angel Rain are such lovable characters! I don't want to say too much about them as to not spoil the story, but I originally thought Callum was a different age than he actually is, based on how he talks. His relationship with Angel Rain is everything! I also love how he has an impact on how Michael sees the world. The descriptions of people and places make everyone and everything really easy to visualize. However, I'm not going to provide casting as to not spoil things. I did picture Jamie Demetriou as Michael though. (That's not spoiling anything, I promise!)

My main concern is something I take issue with whenever there's a diary or journal in a novel: There should not be dialogue in the entries! While Callum is doing a verbal diary of sorts, he seems to recall every single conversation he's had. It just doesn't work for me. I had to get over that to enjoy the story as everything else about it was really good. 

Overall, it's a sweet and heartwarming story that will stick with you long after you have finished. I recommend picking this up for something different. It's not your usual run-of-the-mill rom com.

Thanks to Rachel's Random Resources for the book in exchange for an honest review.
