Format: Paperback
This review is written in my "snapshot" format.

The subject: a chance meeting at an airport, which turns into something more. The cuteness of Hadley and Oliver's interactions will make you smile, but prepare yourself for a good dose of wish fulfillment. Oliver seems a lot like he's constructed to be the dream guy for female contemporary YA readers, right down to the crooked smile. The story unfolds a lot like a fluffy rom-com movie would, complete with (somewhat contrived) meet-cute and misunderstanding.

The setting: the first little bit is set in the airport, the next is set on the plane, and then a good chunk of it is set in London. There's a real truth in how their interactions on the airplane are depicted. I completely agree about flights breaking down inhibitions between strangers; it can feel as though you're in a different world when you're so far above the ground.

Shutter speed: rather slow. It all takes place in the span of 24 hours (a good part of the book's hook, really) and so it moves quite sluggishly. There are a lot of flashbacks padding the real-time plot and unfortunately killing the momentum without adding that much.

What's in the background? Family issues for both Hadley and Oliver. I have the feeling these were at least partly introduced in an effort to give a bit more "depth" to the characters and the storyline. The attempt is somewhat more successful in Oliver's case — his strained relationship with his father entices the reader to want to know more — than Hadley's, whose anger over her parents' divorce and her father's remarriage feels pretty generic and cliché.

Zoom in on: England! Seriously, it's set in London so why not showcase the British atmosphere more?

While I'm not a fan of insta-love in novels, this particular story did make me smile. It was a good read, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for something that will put them in a good mood.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a story about chance encounters and the possibilities of love in a short period of time. Despite being a short novel and taking place over a period of only 24 hours, this book had a surprising amount of emotional depth, as well as character development.

Right from the beginning, I found Hadley to be a relateable, likeable character. She was angry at her dad for leaving her family, and even angrier at him for getting remarried to a woman she’d never met. She doesn’t want to go to his wedding - not only for the reasons already mentioned, but also because she doesn’t like flying - but she goes, and she meets Oliver, a cute Brit living in America, at the airport. The interactions between the two were amusing, surprising, and genuine, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The story was fast-paced, funny, heartbreaking, sweet, and much more believable than I thought it would be. I’ve always had a secret dream of meeting a cute guy in the way Hadley met Oliver, and this story makes me believe it’s possible. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is the perfect story for romantics, believers of love at first sight, and those who enjoy a quick, well-written contemporary read.
