I have just finished reading "Falling in Love with Sophia" and I would respectfully like to give the author my feedback. As a literature major and educator, I have written many poems, essays, etc. throughout my life and I consider myself a writer at heart. As a fellow Greek, I can identify with many elements in this story but I also must be honest, only because it is in our nature to be that way. Before I go into specifics, I would just like to say that if this book was based on some of his own real life experiences, then the author's wife must be a very special and lucky woman.
As I was reading this book, I was a little confused as to where it was going and its relation to the title, so I had to keep reading to the end to find out. This book has wonderful elements to it, and I got emotional quite a few times while reading it, but I think that if this were to be made into a movie, then the title should be different, and the main focus should be on the relationship between the father and the son. I say this only because it started off somewhere, but I think it ended up somewhere else. While I believe that the author really intended to write about love and destiny (and it certainly is one aspect to the story), I really think that he is writing more about family values, disillusionment, life lessons, perseverance and wonderful parallel stories about fathers and sons.
I think there is a really compelling story with the expectation that Greek couples never divorce and they would "rather be miserable for fifty years than divorce". I also believe that there is much to be explored and identified with a Greek father who is always working to achieve the immigrant/American dream of making it and sometimes leaving what is really important (wife and children) behind.

Started reading Falling in Love with Sophia on vacation and once I started reading.....I couldn't put it down! I think all of us can relate to each one of the characters - but one thing remains the same throughtout the book - the sense of family and how it is important in our lives. What a wonderfully well written book from a great storyteller. Proud to have read the book "Falling in Love with Sophia" Everyone greek or not - who believes in basics of life - family, culture and love should read this book

Falling In Love With Sophia is a heartfelt work by Robert Krantz, which I believe is a work of fiction based on real life persons and experiences in the author's life. These real life experiences can transcend any of our lives in any corner of the world. Think about the roots of the name Sophia (Greek for Wisdom). Falling In Love With Sophia is like an awakening, a eureka, a self actualization of what life is really all about. Taking the risk of falling in love. Falling is scary. No one wants to get hurt. The author has skillfully taken the human emotions of fear (falling) and wisdom (sophia) and has woven a pleasant realistic emotional story of two people finding out about themselves and realizing that the risk of love is finally worth the reward. Love, being bestowed on those truly worthy of the riches of this blissful state of being. You could call this a feel good book and maybe even the seminal idea for a movie of like genre, but the formula is a winner that has been told and will continue to be told for generations to come. The protagonists go through the initial stages of the purity of love, then 'grow up' to go on with life, and finally end up seeing the same purity of love that eluded them in the first place; only years older, wiser (sophos / sophia), and finally worthy of living in the state of love. Bravo Mr. Krantz!

I read this book almost in one sitting - it was just that captivating. I laughed, cried, and fell in love with this story - the characters, the plot, and the thought of true love lasting lifetimes. Greek culture is something I know little about, so this was a great learning experience for me. The story is sweet and touching and one I could read over and over again. Pick this up and give it a try - you won't regret it!

Falling in Love with Sophia was very funny at parts -- the very stereotypical Greek actions brought out when a non-Greek is introduced to a family. Read much like My Big Fat Greek Wedding in this aspect. However, this book deals a lot more with faith and the main character's realization that things he learned at Greek Church Camp when he was younger would shape his path and relationships as an adult as he navigates getting married in the midst of family drama.

Do you believe that there is someone in this world that you are destined to fall in love with? Do you believe that the dreams you hold for your life will come true no matter how dark it may seem at times? Do you believe that through the tumultuous tides of your life that God stands forever on guard over you and will help you prevail in the end? This book speaks poignantly, touchingly and brilliantly to all of that and more.

The author of this book is the writer, producer and actor of the award winning movie, "Do You Wanna Dance?" and he is also the father of triplet boys. As he describes in the introduction of the book, when his children were young he would put them to sleep and because they were afraid of the dark, he would sit in the door frame until they fell asleep. One day, he took out a paper and pen and began writing as they fell asleep. He began writing about marriage, about love, about family, about faith... this was the beginning of "Falling in Love with Sophia".

This story would make a beautiful movie.
