A Crack in Forever focuses much more on the love between the two main characters, and on how it changes and grows when Eric gets sick. A Crack in Forever is a unique story of a couple who is dealing with AIDS. We get to see them before the diagnosis, and after. There is very little conflict that results from any class differences between the two. I never felt like my feelings were being manipulated. We get to see her point of view, and can vividly imagine his.

My review may contain spoilers depending on your definition.
This book.. wow. First of all, I like the fact that they don't really talk about clothes, or hairstyles. It makes the book immortal, you don't picture a time period, you don't try to revolve the entire story around what year it is.
Jeannie spent over 100 pages creating a fantastic love story, giving details upon details to make you feel as if you know Eric and Alex. Like you're their friends, she makes you relate to them. And then she slips in the AIDS. It is so subtle, and done so perfectly that as you read on a part of you dies with the end of the book.
I truly know no other way to describe it. It is perfect for all ages. It has sex, but not disgusting, and embarrassing scenes. It has love, tragedy after tragedy. I believe anyone can relate to, and love this book.

One of the blurbs on the back of this book says that it is the "Love Story" of the 90's. In a way, it is - it's the story of a couple in love, the hero Eric is estranged from his rich family, and the heroine is from a middle class background. Then Eric gets sick. However, I felt that "Love Story" manipulated my emotions. And there was a lot of focus on the class differences between two main characters in "Love Story."
A Crack in Forever focuses much more on the love between the two main characters, and on how it changes and grows when Eric gets sick. There is very little conflict that results from any class differences between the two. I never felt like my feelings were being manipulated. Instead, I just cared about these two people, and I cared about what was happening to them when one of them found out he'd contracted AIDS. Of course, it's a sad story. One of the main characters is dying. But it is also a celebration of two people's love, and this part of the story is just as compelling as the rest.
In the end, this is a very simple book. It gives us a peek at one very loving relationship and two very brave people who must learn to fight and accept a disease as stygmatizing and debilitating as AIDS. It's a view that will be permanently imprinted on your mind.

A Crack in Forever is a unique story of a couple who is dealing with AIDS. We get to see them before the diagnosis, and after. We get to see her point of view, and can vividly imagine his. Most of all, we see a different type of love story. I'm hesitant to call it JUST a love story, but especially the first half, you can't ignore the romantic side amidst the tragedy.

Over-all I loved the book. It was a quick read at only 300 pages- perfect length for the story told. I enjoyed the characters, who I did NOT feel were stereotypical at all- and I read constantly. The only thing I would have liked to see more of was relationships with other people developed more. We got to see the couple, Eric & Alex, we met their parents, siblings, friends- but we didn't really get to know the other people. However, the vivid descriptions of feelings and surroundings made up for what was lacking. There were sentences & paragraphs I felt like highlighting, they moved or touched me so.

I'd definitely recommend this book to someone. Although, if you're not comfortable with AIDS, as some reviewers didn't seem to be, this might be a book to skip.

I don't normally read straightforward romance novels but I was in a hurry to catch a plane and it looked kind of interesting ... The blurb "Love Story for the Nineties" should have warned me off, but having read the book I realise that this was a compliment to it - in fact it doesn't even reach this level. This portrayal of two young people in love never rises above a Hollywood-type fantasy where two beautiful perfect people share a series of corny romantic moments - including (so help me God) making love on a beach - you can fill the rest in yourself from any stock romantic comedy. There isn't a single character in this book who isn't a cliche and I found it impossible to feel any sorrow when tragedy strikes these cardboard people. This saccharine romantic fantasy trivialises the reality of HIV infection and never rises above a sentimentalised cliche. Not very impressive

This book came to me with rave reviews from my sister in law. A book is always diappointing when you are expecting it to be better than it actually is.
It's a story of Alexandra and Eric who meet when he is hired as her model for an illustrative journal. He is formulative gorgeous, of course, and she is taken with him. Quickly they fall in love and move in together, forsaking all others.
Basically the first part of the book is all about their love affair, and the latter is about him dealing with AIDS and Alex's commitment to him.
It is a sweet, teary sort of story which does it's job, reminding all us fortunate healthy people not to take ourselves or each other for granted. I found it a bit too soap-operatic though, full of so much drama that it all became unbelievable and schmaltzy towards the end.

This book was soo moving, I cried so hard! It is a wonderful Love-Story ,plus you can totally feel with the characters.I felt so desperate towards the end of the book,'cause Eric's death is described so exactly,you feel involved with AIDS after reading the book.What made me identify myself with the characters was that the book isn't about gays,or drug users(not directly),or any other typical social group,but about two young people like most of us are.I realized that it can happen to anyone,and I wouldn't take any risk.It's definitely an incredibly good book,and everyone who's dealing with Love&Sex (I think all of us do)should read this book.

This is my favorite romance ever. The characters draw you in so much that you feel like it is you falling in love, you living this beautiful love story and then you heartbreakingly losing your loved one. I have reread it many times and the strength if the experience never lessens. Read it and have a tissue box ready.
