“Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row.”
Bullshit. This part of the blurb is hilarious. Is being British one of the qualifications to be called perfect? I’ve read the novel. Pretty sure he’s no near Johnny Deep (aka perfection).
“Love is the strangest, most illogical thing in the world.”
Bullshit. World War II is. It’s illogical to kill a whole race for his, own, narcissistic views. Strange because who the fuck would fucking agree to do this? It’s fucking insane. And yet it happened.
“People who meet in airports are seventy-two percent more likely to fall for each other than people who meet anywhere else.”
Bullshit. Reality check. Have you seen Taken? Yeah, that’s what really happens when you talk to a stranger at the airport. We travel occasionally. And I can honestly vouch for this kind reminder. When you go to the airport, it’s considered unnatural and creepy when somebody talks to you. It’s best to keep your eye out. It’s not the place to meet people, drink coffee, while wearing a comfy trench coat. It’s fucking not Starbucks.
“Did you know that people who meet at lest three different times within a twenty-four hour period are ninety-eight percent more likely to meet again?”
Bullshit. Does this “fact” include or exclude strangers? I want real statistical evidences. Because how the hell would the two characters not meet? Hayley was looking for Oliver, excluding the first part, so obviously you’re bound to see him. Seriously, what the fuck?
“The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.”
Bullshit. The book isn’t about love at first sight. It’s not even a love story. It’s just a story of how they met. She should’ve just tweeted me about it. Like, every other typical teen:
“Met a guy at the airport he’s 100% brit I know bc the accent so excited 2 follow him and ditch dad’s 2nd wedd #young #carpediem #luv”
To be honest, I had high hopes for this one; since I thought that they were going to debunk the idea of love at first sight. I thought that they were going to prove that it does not exist, or if it does then provide strong evidences that will prove otherwise. That’s the only reason I bought this book. Its not even about love at first sight. I should really stop wasting money.
I swear, the story is so fake that it could pass as a fantasy novel.
Do I like it: Fuck no
