Description

Having grown up an awkward teenager, who thought I’d never find romance because I wasn’t pretty and had social anxiety, the stories about the desperate longing for a love that seems elusive, resonated strongly with that period of my life. With a eclectic mix of contributors Lunn beautifully explores love and all that comes with it - love, loss, and heartbreak. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). The book is organised in 3 parts, how do we find love, how do we sustain love and how do we survive losing love?

will leave your heart in a much better place' StylistAfter years of feeling that love was always out of reach, journalist Natasha Lunn set out to understand how relationships work and evolve over a lifetime. een boek dat je, hoe je je ook voelt, volgens mij enkel in een nog betere gemoedstoestand kan brengen, geen handleiding hoe lief te hebben maar een hulde aan leven, aan accepteren, aan liefde in al haar vormen, gedaanten en daden, want wat we zoeken in een romantische relatie is vaak al elders aanwezig. For me, I enjoyed the exploration of how our fear of change, and fear of loss can impact on our relationships.I learnt a lot about the different types of love as I read through each chapter, and I read many things in this book that made me pause for a moment and consider how it might apply to me. For me, this was the real focal point of the book, and do think this should be made more apparent in the title or book summary, as it may be a trigger for a lot of people. this read couldn't have come at a better time for me, as i both marked the time between five star reads in months and navigate the growing seriousness of being super crazy stupid cheesy boring capital I capital L In Love for the first time—the scariest thing i've ever done. sometimes a book we don’t expect to wholeheartedly fall in love with comes into our lives at just the right time to provide us with some much needed introspection on everything we’ve been struggling with.

Lunn tackles this from her own perspective, focussing on her experience with miscarriage and the impact this had on her and her relationships. I’ve made no secret of the fact that this year I’ve felt more at a loss with my life than I have before. Parallel to her conversations is the story of Lunn and the miscarriage that she and her partner suffered. Sometimes you read a book that just makes you want to take the author's hands, look them in the eye and say thank you. conversations on love is a welcome breath of fresh air to the genre, carrying lessons that I know I will take with me into the future.

I felt this book had an undertone of sadness to it, it tackles love in a lot of cases from the perspective of loss, or absence rather than of presence. It begins with what most often occupies our minds when it comes to love, romantic love, the idea of love, not the truth of it, it seeks a definition of love, the need to move beyond the limits and rigidities in the minds of so many.

I genuinely think everybody should read this and that absolutely anybody will leave this book having learnt something new about every form of love, its meaning, its tribulations and its grievances. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Natasha Lunn's 'Conversations on Love' explores the many forms love takes, and the false beliefs we have about it that can lead to intense unhappiness. You can pick it up and turn to any page - literally any - and find a gem to soothe and fortify your soul’ Pandora Sykes, Sunday Times bestselling author of ‘How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? Sekaligus menjadi sebuah refleksi untukku agar menjadi manusia yang punya lebih banyak cinta daripada kebencian.It was a really interesting read and it started some interesting conversations between me and some of my friends. I really enjoyed this collection - it reads more like a long-form essay or newsletter than a book at times and I did find the frequent recaps on what we’d already learned to steer the tone a bit more towards self-help. i’m VERY conflicted about this book, it has taken me months to read (which is very unusual for me) and it put me in a huge reading slump. Whilst I appreciated hearing from different voices and felt this added another layer to the book…I felt that a lot of the perspectives were quite similar.

You can pick it up and turn to any page - literally any - and find a gem to soothe and fortify your soul' Pandora Sykes, Sunday Times bestselling author of 'How Do We Know We're Doing It Right? This is a lovely book, personally I struggle to read but this was laid out so the sentences would flow. My takeaway from this is that love is in the every day act of choosing to be with someone, of understanding that you will both change over time and accepting that, while growing together as two separate people choosing to journey through life together.

i think the ideas in this book are very interesting and i enjoyed the different perspectives we got to see, at the beginning i was flying though it because i really did like it but it soon became very repetitive and i just wanted to be done with it. liefde is als een dorp, het zijn je buren, toevallige passanten, familie en vrienden, veeleer dan die ene persoon gaat het om het vinden van dat dorp, het liefhebben en inzien wat elk van hen bijdraagt en hoewel het een boek was over liefde, werd benadrukt dat liefde niet het enige is dat telt in het leven >>>>>>>>>>>>>!
