Love and Other Human Errors by Bethany Clift #BookReview

LoveAndOtherHumanErrors def


A book synopsis is fundamentally ridiculous. How can I possibly convey, in only 100 words, the events of the past year and their impact on my perfectly ordered existence?

It is insufficient space to accurately detail how I was blackmailed into demonstrating my flawless algorithm to find a soulmate, despite having no desire for one.

In my former life I avoided trivial human connections. I was alone, accomplished and brilliant.

Unfortunately, that solitary and driven woman no longer exists.

My name is Indiana Dylan and this is the extraordinary account of how I fell in love.

There: 100 words exactly.

The lovely pink cover was one of the reasons I decided to read this novel. The fact that it’s been getting really high ratings and was only 99p closed the deal.

This is a story about love and the shortcut to find it. Indiana has created an app called Tru who finds your true soul mate on the basis of more than your interests. The algorithm she wrote knows to find the client’s habits, preferences, everything there is to know. JaneDoe is the company she tries to sell it to but they require proof that it really works so she has to work together with manager Lina (who puts work before love) and IT guy Jack (who lost the love of his life). Indiana/Indi doesn’t want love in her life but there’s a lot at stake as Indi stands to lose her house and the new secret project she’s working on. The app has to work, she knows it does because she never fails so she agrees to prove it to JaneDoe.

I loved how completely different the main characters were but the side characters were just as important if not even more. Peggy – Indi’s assistant – seems more human than Indi herself and the homeless Frank and his dog Alan who take up residence at the entrance of Indi’s building show such humanity and kindness that I literally cried for them. They left quite an impression and are the ones who really stole my heart in a flash.

The characters all make different but important life changes in this novel and I really enjoyed the evolution the characters went through. Indi is socially awkward for a very long time and not easy to connect with at first but she takes baby steps to being more human and showing more heart and as she changes I too really started to warm up to her after being initially drawn towards the other characters at first.

Indiana’s soul mate is waiting for her but as in all romance novels there’s the necessary bumps in the road to love. A bit of a predictable ending but that didn’t make it any less enjoyable. The author inserted enough originality into the novel to give it that little extra. Even though the romance level of the novel was different than expected, present but certainly not dominating, this novel certainly has heart and some valuable advice for the ones who care to listen.

I bought a copy of this novel. This is my honest opinion.
