A love story from a guys point of view?

A love story from a guys point of view? Topic: How to write a love story book
June 15, 2019 / By Cheri
Question: Every book I have read about two people falling in love has been in the girls point of view. It is always talking about how much the girl loves the guy. I was just wondering what are some good novels about love from the guys point of view. I am 16, and I do read teen romance books (I love Sarah Dessen, I've read all her books), but I also have just started to read books by Jodi Picoult, which are amazing. So I am pretty open, I am just looking for a love story from a guys point of view. Thanks :)

The Great Gatsby is probably the only male love story, written by a guy that's worthwhile. If you can get past the 20's slang and mannerisms, it's a great book. Plus it has some great historical underlying.

If you're looking for a true romance, read Wuthering Heights. It isn't from either the male or female's point of view. Instead, its narrated by less important characters, and it's the only romance novel I've ever enjoyed. The Great Gatsby is a good one, but it centers less on love than Wuthering Heights. You might also try Great Expectations, but it isn't really a romance. It's just written from a male's point of view.

Sarah Dessen is amazing. And I know what you mean, Here are some books that have a boy's pov. When It Happens by Susane Colasanti Lost It by Kristen Tracy Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher Thirteen Reasons why is breathtaking, and very emotional. Hope I helped. :]

Nick & Norah's Infinate Playlist I read it before I knew the movie was being made and I thought it was good (its from both perspectives) but then a few weeks later I saw the trailer for the movie and I thought that if I hadn't read the book already I definatly wouldn't.

Sounds interesting! A suggestion, though: make sure not to make it overtly cheesy. Make it realistic, like it really is coming from a guy. I like Nicholas Sparks as much as the next person, but I do believe his approach to guys falling in love is the slightest tadd cheesy.

If the Authors uses the first person point of view, the story would not be interesting at all. The first person point of view would only give us in this case, the wife's perspective. and stories that have a first person narration are hard to believe. Because we would only know her side of the story, not the husbands. and if we believe all the things the first person narrator says, our perception of the story would be biased. By making it third person objective narration, we were able to read the story and interpret it ourselves.
