This wonderful book has become one of my favorites! There is something that I love more than love stories, if you can believe it, and that is love letters! I have always hoped to receive a long,true heartfelt, love letter from a man, but I never did! There is another book that I recommend also, and that is 98 LOVE LETTERS THAT WILL BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES, these books are very similar! I liked both of these books very much!

But I do remember getting a love note one time, when I went to get my car fixed, one of the mechanic's sent me a small torned piece of paper that said "I think that you are beautiful!" I was so shocked and surprised, and flattered, I did not think nobody was even noticing me like that, but I was so shy, and I did not know how to flirt back, all I knowed to do was smile back at him and say thank you, because my shyness was kicking in big time, and I have never learned the art of flirting, some woman are natural born flirts ,they are so good at it and well, all I know how to do, is to be, just me.

But I highly recommend this book! This book contains a awesome collection of love letters ,from famous & non-famous people of long ago, it tells you who they are, and to whom they are writing to, and what year! These letters are in their original format, with their own unique version of the English language! These letters are so heartfelt and wonderful, because these people where so in love!

I have never known men like the ones that write these letters, these letters they are so profound, and romantic, and I love all these beautiful names, that the men called their ladies that they loved so much; names like MY BELOVED, MY IMMORTAL BELOVED, MY DARLING, MY LOVE, MY ANGEL, MY BELOVED ANGEL, MY DEAREST, and so on, etc!

Wonderful collection of love letters. The book itself is beautiful with the old fashioned quill and rose on the front cover. The interior is just as pretty. The names appear to be calligraphy, but it's regular print.

I was especially excited to see the letters are the originals. They are not put in modern terms.

I'm going to have to order another one since my friend borrowed it and she won't bring it back to me.

I understand why they put the letters in modern English but really does take the romance out of it. And no, the letter does not read the way it does in the movie but is now:

Eternally Yours
Eternally Mine
Eternally Ours.

Still beautiful but not the same romantic, dreamy feel.

Format: Paperback
I adore this book, and the theme behind it. As a romantic at heart and as one of those girls that would love to believe in true love, this book confirms to me that it is actually possible to find your soul mate. Now I'm not saying this book is for the people that want to read about happily ever after's, because in reality most of these love letters are dated and back when Beethoven was in love with the imfamous "Immortal Beloved" people didn't always get to have a happily ever after. The letter's are more based on the Romeo and Juliet scenario. You find your true love but you are destined to forever be apart. However, those facts do not take away from the remarkable truth that these letter's were written by real people for real people, and while reading them you can find yourself trasported to that place and time, and feel just as loved and adored.

Like most I bought this book because I assumed is was the one from the Sex and the City movie. I don't think it is, but it's an amazing book all the same. The authors' writing is so beautiful, and the choice of letters reveal so much about the historical figures that wrote them.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance and artful writing. I'm sure this will be a book I read over and over.

For those only interested in this book because of the SATC movie the letter varies slightly. I'm not sure that many people know that it is a great mystery whom the "immortal beloved" is referring to by Beethoven. There are many theories about who "immortal beloved" is and there is even a movie about it...but no one knows. I love that. I love to read that letter and I feel like I am given a brief glimpse into someone's secret heart and I wonder how she felt about him.

I'm such a sucker for love letters that's why I bought this in the first place. That, plus I did see a (similar) version of it in the Sex & the City movie.

The love letters in the collection are all great. That and they were written by famous people. I love the sentimentality of the letters and the timelessness of the verses. It's such a great read if you're into old-fashioned romance and grammatically correct phrasing. I managed to read and re-read the book many times before I parted with it to be enjoyed by someone else.

I'm not too crazy about spending over $30 for a book though unless it's a collectible. It would be great if you could borrow a copy from the library or a friend. I would have given it a 5 but knocked off 1 star because of the price. Still a great book though.

It's interesting to read the letters in this book but they could have been better arranged to make a more useful reference.
