Alright, this is going to be one of my shortest reviews, I think. Even though there weren’t very many surprises left in the book with the blurb that has been included with the book, I can’t deny the cuteness factor of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. In fact, this is one of those books where instalove did work out. Hadley and Oliver did spend hours cooped up together on a plane, talking about everything and nothing. That is how relationships do start after all. I’ve decided that someone would become a dear friend to me in less time than that.
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother 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 sitting in her row.
A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?
Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a very light-hearted book that tells the story of how two strangers met and go to know each other on a much deeper level than most people do on their first encounter. The plot was simple, playing more on the emotional response towards love at first sight and the hopefulness that it does happen.
Beyond all that, I don’t think there’s much left for me to say. I thought the book was enjoyable but I wasn’t swept of my feet. Hadley and Oliver were nice people and I liked seeing the transition from suspicious strangers to two people who had the promise of becoming very involved in one another’s lives. Anything I say beyond this feels like it’d be a spoiler of the few things that weren’t said in the blurb.
