The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Book Review

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight


First, I thought that this book was about Mathematics, and Statistics. But then, after reading its Prologue and its First Chapter, I was definitely hooked.

This book was about the girl named Hadley who wass about to attend the wedding of his father with his new wife. ‘Fortunately,’ she was four minutes late for her trip to London. On her next trip, he met a guy named Oliver. They had the seven hours travel to talk about various things. They talked about their families, and personal interests.

What I liked about this book is its sense of reality. It tackles the common problems between the teenagers suffering the dilemma of coming from a broken family. On Oliver’s side, it discusses how some family members remained in tacked despite of the issues of the family. Moreover, the main idea of the book is not just about ‘love’ or the ‘teenage love’ itself, but the love which surrounds the family. The love that forgives, and accepts. The love that is illogical and doesn’t make sense. It is surreal.

My favorite line?

Did you know that people who meet at least three times a day within a twenty-four hour  period are ninety-eight percent more likely to meet again?

This book is a must-read. Each chapter is an extreme page-turner. I cannot finish a book within a day, but this book is an exemption. It made my day. 🙂
