PostSubject: On Love by Alain De Botton   Tue 01 Sep 2009, 9:09 pm

I was delighted to see this title on the list as it was one I have possessed for a long time. It was tough to decide as I have 3 others on the list that are lining my shelves and waitng to be chosen. But after a more serious read, this one promises to be "smart and funny". So we will see.

scratch This book was definitely a puzzlement. It traces a guy's every thought on meeting and falling in love - through examining every quirk, motion, word, action of his beloved through their relationship. The climb to the top and the fall to the depths -- and when all seems lost - omg! here's a viable replacement. I didn't love this book and I am surprised that it is on the list. So, I am thinking that the humor was simply lost on me. Anyways, each chapter is enumerated which is kinda odd, but a good technique to provide easy stop and start places as you read.
