Book Review: The Statstical Probabilty of Love at First Sight

Have you read this book yet?  No?  Then what are you waiting for?  Turn off your computer, download it onto your ereader, read it and then come back.

Well, how freaking awesome right?  What did it take you like two hours?  Best two hours you've spent all week?  Yep. Me too!

Summary from goodreads.com
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A.

Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

What I loved about this book- pacing was perfect, the conflict was realistic and yet just enough of escapism for me to enjoy.  And Oliver, bonus points for being British. 

The only draw back I felt was that the book was written in 3rd person limited, and considering how personal the story was, I felt distance from Hadley and would have perferred to be in first.  But besides that I LOVED IT. 

9 out of 10

What's the fastest you've ever read a book?
