The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight | Book review

I needed an easy read novel to start off my summer of reading and blogging, and I came across this novel in Barnes and Noble the other day and decided to give it a shot.

It took me a solid four hours to finish; I just couldn't put it down. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was a light hearted and innocent novel about young long, adventure and taking risks. Jennifer E. Smith told this beautiful little tale about a girl and a boy falling for each other over a seven hour airplane flight.

If the book stopped at that I probably would have given up after the first chapter, but the author is brilliant in the means by which she tells the story.

The first thing that caught my attention was that fact that she wrote in the present tense. No he did this or she did that. No, it was always she is doing this or he sees that. Changing it up a bit; keeping it fresh. I like that and it's interesting. On top of that the story line doesn't follow a young couple in love for a few months or years, detailing their trials and tribulations. This book all happens within a 24 hour time period. I'm sure it has been done before, but I have never seen that so it was extremely captivating for me in that sense. Not to mention the book was short so I could read it in a few hours, but still long enough to have a well developed story.

If you are just looking for a light-hearted easy read, I would definitely suggest this book. And best of all it was just over $3 on my Kindle app. There is something about getting a good deal on a book that just makes it that much more pleasurable to read.
