Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, if love exists, then there is love at first sight. For every Romantic there is another Romantic. Love at first sight can still happen. A lot of people are saying and distinguishing love at first sight as true love because of the what the status quo has dictated but there is nothing that says love at first sight is true love. But that’s just for me. For the others, some say no, because they haven’t experience it. While the others goes with my side and say yes because they already experienced or experiencing love at first sight. This concludes that love at first sight may happen to some people. But the new question is, what is the statistical probability of love at first sight?
My friend recommended me a book named “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight” written by Jennifer Smith. From the title, I thought that this is some kind of research paper that will answer our question. But according to my friend its a cute story that will somehow explain how love at first sight takes place and how possible that it’s a love at first sight.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is about a girl, named Hadley, who, at first part of the story, missed her flight as she goes to his father’s second wedding. As she waited in the airport, destiny played with her heart and linked it with a British boy Oliver until they’re in the plane. But it doesn’t end there because love at first sight formed in this 24-hour tale. Yes, you heard it right. Imagine! A 24-hour tale book contains a 236 paged events – that’s why I admired the author for managing such story. Well, the story doesn’t only revolve around Hadley and Oliver, but also to Hadley’s parents, her father and her stepmother, Charlotte and her mother and a dentist.
Aside from the book being sweet, cute and quite witty, it is informative. Love is forever for some. Hadley and Oliver is an example. At the same time, love is ephemeral sampled by Hadley’s parents. But one thing is clear in this story. True love finds you when you’re least expecting it, as the website of the novel says. Let me end this review with the quotes from Jennifer Smith.
“Love is the strangest, most illogical thing in the world.”
“It’s not the changes that will break your heart; it’s that tug of familiarity.”
“Is it better to have had a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it?”
“Love isn’t supposed to make sense. It’s completely illogical.”
“It’s one thing to run away when someone’s chasing you. It’s entirely another to be running all alone.”
