Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
By Jennifer E. Smith
Genre YA contemporary
Recommended by Roxy
First sentence There are so many ways it could have all turned out differently.
Hadley is on her way to her father's wedding. It should be the worst day of her life and things get worse when she misses her flight but things might be looking up when she meets Oliver.
***Warning! This is the shortest review I've ever written. Probably just a mood thing but there really isn't much to say about the book either.****
What it has going for it
I needed a light, fluffy, brain candy book in my current mood and this one fit the bill. That's not to say there is no depth in this book, because there is. I thought the almost screenplay style of writing was interesting. I don't think I've ever read a book in that style and I was sure it was going to bug me at first but I didn't even notice it after awhile. Hmmm, I really don't know what else to say. It wasn't mind blowingly wonderful but it was sweet and romantic and just what I needed right now. What more can I ask?
Really can't think of anything. It's not very memorable, I guess.
I love books that take place in London. I love the description of the city. It brings back happy memories.
Yea or Nay?
If you need something light and sweet with a hint of depth, than yes.
