Endless Love by Scott Spencer - book cover, description, publication history.

Endless Love by Scott Spencer, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
David shows only small similarities to his book counterpart, even if Alex Pettyfer looks the part as described in the book.
Jade, an enigma in the book, comes alive in the movie. We get to see her, and learn about her. Again the differences between the book character, and movie are striking.
Jade and her family are well to do. This reverses the roles from the novel.
In the novel, David comes from an affluent family. The story focuses more on her family, and their reasons for keeping her from David.
Gabriella Wilde matches the description of Jade from the books — blonde, delicate features, pretty. The biggest difference between the novel and movie may be how they approach the relationship.
The movie however shows you what couples can bring out in each other. It shows how they can compliment, and better each other. The book however, offers a twisted peek at the darker side of our natures that is missing completely from the movie.
The book and movie offer two different, and yet equally compelling, looks at love. One is filled with hope and promise.
The other shows the darker side of infatuation. It shows how addictive the feelings someone creates within you can be, and how easy it can be to become addicted, and let it devour you.
Either offers up the idea that love can be a powerful life changing thing. Your preference may come down to how cynical you are.

But David's love is endless, so, once out on parole, he tracks down Jade's literary, seductive mother now separated to New York; and soon he's Manhattan-bound, leaving behind his smarmy parole officer and his suffering parents.
His father's ditching his mother for a dying black woman. Will David be reunited with Jade? Yes, of course--but only through coincidental calamity: The funeral brings Jade to N.
But this idyll--which moves up to Jade's shared house in Bennington--can't last, especially once Jade finds out exactly how her father died. So it's fury, fits, and back to the nuthouse for David.
Why, then, if we never quite believe in David's obsession, does most of this book compel? Because of the gorgeously stark prose though flawed by overeager similes and lazy descriptions--Jade's female exdover looks ""rather like Joni Mitchell"".
But, above all, because whether David's particular excessive fixation convinces on a literal level, his story works absolutely as a massive metaphor for whatever endless loves, hates, or fears the reader brings to the book: There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.

'Endless' Amour: A Steamy Story Of Teenage Passion
View all 6 comments. The characters in the movie are quite different from the book, almost to the point of being opposites.
I try to read it every couple of year I have always loved this book. However, Jade's father Hugh watches the couple with increasing unease. I didn't 'like' David or many of his choices, I thought he was too selfish and interested in self-gratification and too little concerned about other people's opinion or feelings.
I hate to think it but I bet it's true.
