On Love is a hilarious anecdote about the trials and tribulations we face when one begins the process of falling in love. de Botton takes us through his feelings of masculinity, insecurity and the absolutes of a relationship. He describes the object of his desire, Chloe, with detailed precision and reminds us that we are all capable of making mistakes in the art of love. I completely recommend this book for anyone, no matter where they are in finding love.
A great personal story about falling in love and relationships - written in a tone that is similar to the way we would write emails or have late night conversations: authentic and human. The character (the author) meets someone on a plane, and then goes through all the ups and downs of falling in love and the complications with it - really rings true with real life.
Every reader simply must identify with the narrator in some capacity. Each time I read it, I see myself in new passages. This is a book that I will only recommend or give to people who I believe can appreciate it.
On Superficial love, not endearing, but when is it ever? Good book.
