Part urban city romance, part apocalyptic tale, the Super Sad True Love Story: A Novel ($15) is at times so convincing that it becomes frightening. This tale is not all doom and gloom - an old fashioned love story is weaved throughout as Lenny Abramov, obsessed with living forever, also becomes obsessed with Eunice Park, a 20-something Korean-American. Their narration alternates chapter by chapter as do their struggles in a digital dystopia. Heartbreaking and catastrophic - yes, please!
