Review and Summary of the Dystopian Novel Super Sad True Love Story  

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

Lenny Abramov who is a 39 years old man residing in Ohio, having a Russian background is a very successful author and he writes along with his reputed job career. His love for books is beyond the limit but his nature is different from many of us. He possesses a very distinctive critique and bad feeling for the destructiveness over the years in America and foresight the upcoming ones too.

Eunice Park is a young graduate from a Korean background who is struggling to take forward her cultural values and moving ahead. Eunice meets Lenny on his visit to Rome on holidays and there they fall in love. Lenny’s assertiveness was taken away with love and humbleness which was passed on by Eunice and they tied the knots while Lenny turns out to be a completely different person.

The turning point comes when America faces some massive economic crises caused by the Chinese creditors who turned the whole economy upside down. The crises later turned into riots and major misfortunes but Lenny worked on conveying a message of inner stability and humbleness. Even when the situations deem unfavourable, happiness comes from the inside, not with financial stability.

Final Say on the Dystopian Novel Super Sad True Love Story

I personally decided to give this story an 8.5 out of 10  for the message conveyed. Gary Shteyngart unquestionably wrote this piece with all his heart because of the level of laughter, lightness and cultural rootedness displayed in the book. There’s no question why he received awards for his other novels too. A great Fictional fun novel which you will surely not regret reading. Will, I read this novel again? Yes, definitely I will keep it in my collection and read it again.
