Book of Love Ending Explained: What happens with Henry & Maria?
In the end, Henry and Maria end up together. Despite many obstacles in their path, the two lovers reunite, making their love story very different from their book.
Even though Henry and Maria have opposite personalities, worldviews, and life experiences, their greatest strength is finding common ground. The ending of the film throws light on the same.
Maria expresses her lament that she always neglects her happiness for the men in her life. By finishing the book without him, Henry proves to be just like the other men. Henry recognizes his mistake and corrects it by helping Maria gain recognition for her work.
In the process, Henry learns that he really does love Maria. Henry embraces his feelings and makes a passionate admission of his feelings during the climax. Thus, Henry proves that Maria’s happiness matters to him.
There is no connection, even when they are forced to work on a second book together because their first collaboration was such a success. Just when the pacing is supposed to be zanier, it gets pulled.
Their get-together conversations are meaningless, and the awkward way in which these scenes are blocked and shot doesn’t help them. Supposedly, a sequence in a popular TV talk show looks like something out of cable access programming, the set so gaudy and the lighting so ineffective.
Book of Love Review: Must Watch!
The film is based on the premise that a man who resembles Sam Claflin will not equate to a romantic life or any meaningful sexual experience. Once the audience crosses that barrier, Henry stands out as a man who holds back from the idea of sex, intimacy, lust, and passion.
He is humorless and appears to be at a complete loss in making an interesting book. His Mexican counterpart, Maria, is the opposite. She isn’t afraid to be expressive and has experiences that allow her to find the right words for a romance novel.
She also has a deep passion for writing but is limited by her circumstances, which only fuels her creativity. The Book of Love can only work if it ties together these two different people and their different ideas of love, and it is not entirely successful.

While the film shows how one would expect, it seems to have to do with the story. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, February is gearing up with the release of romance movies; One of which is Buzzfeed’s Book of Love.
As the name suggests the main story is of love. With the idea of incorporating a book into the tangle of love. Sam Claflin plays a writer whose personality can be attributed to that of a dork. He’s soft-spoken, the kind of pushy guy whose opinion is only when his book is in the picture.
Although the character doesn’t sound very appealing, Claflin’s performance sold it well. The look clearly helped. Claflin was born to play a British dork whose life has been “plain” and thus doesn’t understand the whirlwind of love. When such a person releases a book inspired by his apparently worldly life, it is safe to say that the book is not a bestseller.
