Book Review : The Class

Leave a comment

03/09/2013 by Siddiqui Fayesal

The Class is one of the few books that I have read and re-read without qualms. My first rendezvous with Erich Segal was with Love Story which, for the record, I loved. The story was simple, without cliches (some would disagree and maintain the apparent hackneyed-ness of the story), and simple characters. Anyway, I am here to review The Class, which is a more serious book and 10 times the length of Love Story. It takes time for the story to pick up and it might be apprehensive for the reader for a while whether it’s simply a drama of life in Harvard.

The plot, many in number and interconnected with all the main characters, opens up slowly giving the reader enough time to understand each of them. Narration is quite simple and the language is strong. The scent of the words permeates slowly concocting a strong brew of first person narration in the form of diary entries to the third person point of view. The Class is indeed one of Erich Segal’s brilliant books.
