It has been a long time since I read a book and laughed this much. The premise is fantastic--science guy searches for love using the scientific method. There is clearly 1 main character and everyone else is just a minor player, not engaging individually but make a great ensemble and the book says something about personhood.
It reads a bit like a sitcom. What made the book funny was the main character's makeover which was conducted by old professors. He did everything at once: Lasik, braces and teeth whitening the day of his first speed dating experience! Hilarious!!
In addition to the hilarity, a few lines spoke to me:
"Through what untwist of fate would it have taken to have dodged his present misery."
"He'd gone with the truth he'd known at the time. He shouldn't be regretful"
One of the things I enjoyed about the book was that chapters started with a science quote [for example] "An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." -Niels Bohr
Read this book and you will laugh too!
