Even though I am not a huge science person, I really appreciated how committed Gunnar was to science. EVERYTHING must be related to science for him, or he simply does not understand it. It was a strong theme throughout the whole book, and I have to say it was done really well.
I loved the science speeches he gave to his physics class, and also how he related love to his research. The reason why I liked that he related love to his research is that the way he viewed love changed throughout the book, but he still found a way to link it back to science. And in fact, this better understanding of love helped him in more ways than one. I loved how everything came together.
The characters were realistic, and that was the best part about them! They were not perfect in any way; each of them had their flaws. Ursula seemed to get mad too easily and could hold a grudge, Kara (well, hers is obvious) and Gunnar could be slightly annoying as well. But honestly, it made me like him even more.
Love at Absolute Zero is such an easy and engaging read! I had a great time reading it. I loved the speed dating scenes because the women were absolutely hilarious. They were taken to such extremes, and it was so funny some of the things they said. I loved Gunnar’s responses to their “questions”. Overall, this was just a really well done book. It was funny, intriguing, cute, and satisfying.
