The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?

Imagine if she hadn’t forgotten the book. Or if there hadn’t been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn’t fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she'd run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else - the weather over the Atlantic or a fault with the plane?

Hadley isn't sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it’s the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver...

Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it.

I'd heard such awesome things about this book. Everyone was raving about it and saying it was wonderful.

I am, unfortunetly, not one of the above people.

Maybe I expected too much from this book from the reviews I read. I'm not sure. What I do know is that I put this book down after just forty pages.

The pacing of this novel is very slow and to my mind, nothing really has happened in the three chapters or so that I read. On top of that, the story did not pull me in. It felt forced and unbelievable and totally unrealistic.

As for the main character, Hadley, I found her to be one of the most annoying characters in any novel that I have ever read! I'm sorry, but all she seemed to do, in my mind, was to complain, compalin and complain some more. I understand that she didn't want to attend her father's wedding to his new bride but, seriously, do you have to keep telling me numerous times!?

So, basically, in a nutshell I really disliked this novel. I found it tedious and unenjoyable - so much so that I put it down and will not be picking it up again!
