Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be taking part in the blog tour for Love and Other Human Errors by Bethany Clift today. With thanks to Steven at Hodder for the invite to join the tour and for my copy. This is also book eighteen of the 20 Books of Summer challenge I’m taking part in. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
The convention of a book synopsis is fundamentally ridiculous. How can I adequately convey in only 150 words the complexity and bewilderment of the past 10 months and the effect the events that occurred have had on my perfectly regulated existence?
One would need much longer to record in detail how I was blackmailed into demonstrating the efficacy of my soulmate programme and forced to participate in a series of ridiculous dates. How my life has been forever altered as a consequence.
Prior to this, I was driven and focused, consumed with work, destined to change the world with my brilliance. I had no family, no friends and no need for frivolous human connection. I was systemic and solitary, a woman with one goal.
I am that person no longer.
My name is Indiana Dylan, and this is the story of how I fell in love.
There: 150 words precisely.
I think it’s safe to say that after reading Last One at the Party, Bethany Clift went straight onto my auto buy list. I couldn’t wait to see what this author would come up with next. So what did I think of Love and Other Human Errors? Well, you know what. I loved it!
I would say when it comes to this story the less said about the plot, the better. Just because I loved discovering it all for myself. I want everyone to have the same experience. So I’m going to try and be a little vague regarding the plot. However I will say that everything in this story worked so well for me. From the characters who might have their faults but were loveable all the same. Well, except for maybe two! To the story that captured my attention from the first page to last.
I loved all the perspectives in this book it gave everything a much more rounded feel and it felt like I got to know the characters so much better too. They are complex and have so much more to their personalities than what first impressions showed. Oh and a special mention has to go to Alan, the dog!
Love and Other Human Errors made me smile, giggle and even get a little emotional. Okay, maybe a lot emotional. There are some important themes throughout and I thought these moments were perfectly combined with writing that conveyed charm, wit and a lot of heart.
If I could come up with just a few words to describe Love and Other Human Errors. They would be engaging, loveable and so very entertaining. It felt as if I was saying goodbye to friends once I turned that final page. I guess I’ll finish by saying it again, I loved this book!
