Smith – Thomashillier.co.uk Home The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Flowers in the Attic Ali Cross Someone Knows Twenty-one Truths About Love The Revisioners Song of the Crimson Flower A Transcontinental Affair 10 thoughts on “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight” Honestly, for having a name like The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and a synopsis promising a British boy named Oliver, this book is pretty damn disappointing Although it does deliver on the British boy front who, frankly, really isn t even that great , it doesn t deliver much else.SPLFS starts off with Hadley Sullivan missing her flight to London at JFK Granted, Hadley would rather see her dentist than attend her father s wedding to a woman she s never even met, but her father is counting on her to make it on time.Reluctantly, she gets a later flight one that leads to a whole lotta lurve.It amazes me how such a short story can feel so slow and long winded at times it was like dredging through sludge The characters and cluster of scenes that take ... Reply This is my second book of the year and the second I read during a sleepless night The similarity ends there, unfortunately While Split kept me up because it was so good I just HAD to finish it, this one well, it was only insomnia And to think I was so eager to read it See, I m all for vanilla romance, it s light, relaxing and cute But this book did not even remotely relax me.The premise is interesting Hadley, on her way to London to attend her much dreaded father s wedding, misses her flight Rescheduled for the next one three hours later, which will make her arrive barely on time, she meets Oliver, a British student at Yale, on his way to London for some other wedding Sparks ensue Will Hadley make it to the wedding Will she see Oliver again At first, I thought that the problem I had with this book had to do with the narrative technique The third person limited didn t work well for me, I didn t get invested in the story that much I couldn t connect to Hadley and even though there were some cute moments, the role I felt I was playing was just that of a polite observer I guess I am a first person type as far as these romantic stories are concerned... Reply I think I fell in love. at first sight. with this book.I finished reading it with happy tears in my eyes It made me sad, it made me happy, it made my heart race even though there wasn t too much action, but the amount of emotions per page were definitely too many for my heart to handle them properly.This book went from the must read shelf to the most beautiful romances shelf in a blink of an eye I was caught up in this story without knowing one moment around midnight I started reading it, I struggled with understanding Hadley and her problems with her father, and then I don t remember how the time passed and it was 5 30 in the morning when I virtually turned the last page of my kindle and I was deeply in love with this story.I thought it was supposed to be a fluffy read about love at first sight, as the title and the description of the book are a bit misleading giving you a hint in this direction.So I was prepared to laugh and maybe to care a bit about Hadley and Oliver Still, nothing prepared me for the beauty and the dramatic turnarounds of this story.Of course I saw it coming, from the bri... Reply 3.5This was a super short read 215 pages of pretty large print but it was fun, heart warming and I managed to finish it within a couple of hours I didn t quite take enough from it to give it 4 stars, but then it was far better than some of the books I ve rated 3 stars in the past, hence the rating I confess that I would not have read this book if the publishers had not provided a free copy for review, I rarely like romance books and need something else to support the novel, a mystery for example Or a fantasy world But this book surprised me with it s quirky humour and easy to read style.Not many books actually make me laugh out loud but this managed to extract a few giggles, mostly during the conversations between Hadley and Oliver, the chemistry was easily built up and sustained throughout Also, that s another thing, there wasn t any love at first sight nonsense, so I m not quite sure what that title s all about There is a touch of fate destiny questions about whether life is automatically leading you towards the one you re meant to be with but strangely, it wasn t cheesy and it kind of worked I don t even know how But I m guessing it must be in the author s talent for writing conversations, the novel is made up mostly of conversations between the two protagonists and, though a novel with s... Reply This books is so utterly FABULOUS It s one my favorite love stories and it happens in a mere twenty four hour period Don t worry about the instalove thing happening here That s something that I can t stand and TSPoLaFS did you like how I shortened the titles there, whew it s a long one does not have instalove It has a progressive, genuine building of a relationship that is sweet and endearing.Both characters are very relatable and I loved their scenes together They just play off of each other so very well Smith does an... Reply Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything Now this is what I call a plain ol romantic love story that has everything you want and It s definitely perfect for this time of year when you can cuddle up near a fire and just let your heart be filled The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight will leave you breathless and just when you think you can t take any sweetness, you find out the reason behind this mouthful of a title and you re swept off your feet yet again After missing her flight and sulking around the airport, Hadley meets this boy, Oliver, who has a handsome face and a charming personality And guess what They re on the same flight Hadley s personality is perfect for this novel She s upset by her father s wedding which makes her a bit irrational, but she s so loving and down to earth It s effortless to simply adore her character The same goes for Oliver He has this attractive, comfortable quality about him that makes it really easy to warm up to him I could completely understand Hadl... Reply 3.5 stars it s cute, it s fluffy, and if you go into it expecting anything elsejoke s on you really it s true that from the summary you think there re gonna be a few swoony moments and a little less of family drama, but all the same, it s a... Reply Is it better to have had a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it That the entire story takes place in only 24 hours gives perfect sense to the story and of course, to the title It really is a quick and easy read like watching a cute romantic movie although I strongly don t think that this is a story about love, perhaps of a story of new beginnings or second chances or maybe even fate Yes, fate is the better term By reading this book, you ll learn a lot about airports since the good first part of the story is set at an airport and an airplane which I really have nothing against because last time I checked, an airport is one of the most romantic settings where lovers profess their love for each other Do consult all those romantic movies Take this for instance and this and this Oh, how I love this scene from Friends The story is simply written and the plot is almost linear There is really nothing in it that surprised me or wowed me which is what I was expecting because the cover seems to tell me to expect just that But I had no problems about the writing or the characters They re likable enough In fact, there are many insightful ideas that make you want to quo... Reply This book was so cute and was the perfect thing to read to get out of my slump I was a little reluctant to read it as I ve heard many negative reviews, but I really enjoyed it I even liked the fact that it wasn t s... Reply This was just an alright book It had the potential to be super cute and adorable but ended up just being pretty meh I didn t really love that it was written in present tense it made the narration voice feel super weird at different points and I feel like the relationship didn t develop at all which isn t surprising since it s extremely short and the main characters are going through their own stuff that they have to deal with.I did like, though, that both the characters had things they needed to work through, even if the resolution of those things felt rushed over the last...
