Modern love is never easy. Society is obsessed with stories of romance, but what comes after happily ever after?

This is a love story with a difference. From dating to marriage, from having kids to having affairs, it follows the progress of a single ordinary relationship: tender, messy, hilarious, painful, and entirely un-Romantic. It is a love story for the modern world, c

Update: This is a $1.99 Kindle special right now. Personally... I think all young couples would find value in this book. I have the download too ... I still wish to own a physical copy. I've seen the hardcopy. It's beautiful.

Wonderful! Wonderful! *Extraordinary*!!!!!

I sooooo want a copy of this PHYSICAL BOOK!!

I have the hardest time writing reviews for books I love the most.

I know what I think about The Course of Love, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I do know that I feel like an outlier because clearly de Botton is loved by many and already many GR friends have responded very positively to this book. The Course of Love focuses on the relationship between Rabih and Kristen from the time they meet to 13 years or so into their marriage. There are two narrative strings. The first is told from Rabih and Kristen's perspective, and takes us through a gamut of event ...more

Profound Truths of Marriage (and Human Nature)

Through a Scottish couple, Rabih and Kirsten, de Botton dissects love and marriage. From the seeds of love planted when we are teens to dating to wedding to kids through adultery and counseling for anxious attachment and avoidant attachment arising from childhoods in which each lost a parent young, de Botton tells their story which he mixes with profound truths about human nature and the mountainous te

Once, early on in my marriage, my husband and I had a particularly intense fight over a ridiculously trivial matter. I barely remember the topic – something about where to hang some artwork – but I vividly recall that frightening feeling that I had made a ghastly mistake in joining our futures together.

Enter Alain De Botton. I wish I could advise my younger self to have read his book. De Botton employs an everyman and everywoman – in this case, Rahib, a non-religious budding architect from Beiru

دیدگاه رمانتیک نسبت به ازدواج، بر اهمیتِ یافتن شخص ”مناسب و درست” پافشاری می کند، که یعنی شخصی همدل با علایق و ارزش های فراوان ما. چنین شخصی اصلا وجود نخواهد داشت. ما بیش از حد متفاوت و منحصر به فردیم. تناسب و همخوانی همیشگی غیر ممکن است. شخص مناسب کسیست که بتواند با فراست و کلام خوش راجع به اختلاف سلایق گفت و گو کند

خوب من بعد از خوندن این کتاب فهمیدم که پروسه ی ازدواج خیلی پیچیده تر از اونی هست که دارم دور و اطرافم می بینم.. و اصلا اینجوری که راحت و بدون شناخت عاقلانه و درک درست از زندگی مشترک

This book should be compulsory reading before ANYONE gets married. I adored it. The last two chapters in particular were just astounding and beautiful and poignant and WISE. I wasn't a huge fan of 'Essays' - although it was still a remarkable achievement for a twenty-something's debut. But in The Course Of Love, Alain's life experience and wisdom really shines through. It's perfect.

The perfect antidote to what we're told Love *is* from the movies. And yet, never cynical. Truly remarkable.

«Ο έρωτας φτάνει σε μια κορύφωση στις στιγμές που ο αγαπημένος μας καταλήγει να κατανοεί, πιο καθαρά από όσο μπόρεσαν ποτέ οι άλλοι και ίσως καλύτερα και από εμάς τους ίδιους, τα χαοτικά, αμήχανα και ενοχικά κομμάτια του εαυτού μας. Το γεγονός ότι κάποιος άλλος καταλαβαίνει ποιοι είμαστε, συμπάσχει μαζί μας και ταυτόχρονα μας συγχωρεί για όσα βλέπει, ενισχύει συνολικά την ικανότητα μας να εμπιστευόμαστε και να προσφέρουμε.

Still wonderfully insightful and I can still recommend it. It's as searingly honest as anything, but doesn't feel the need to see the negative of life in a negative light. Nor a positive one. Like shining all colours on life so it looks all washed out and white. But true.

This is as patently revealing of a novel's intent and structure as any work can be, and so it's no surprise that it directs its characters towards more disaster and conflict than might be necessarily realistic, bec

Description: Rabih and Kirsten meet, fall in love, get married. Society tells us this is the end of the story. In fact, it is only the beginning. Over the years this ordinary couple will miscommunicate and misunderstand each other, will worry about money, will have first a girl and then a boy. One of them will have an affair, one will think about it. Both will have doubts. This will be the real love story. Twenty-first century depictions of love and marriage are shaped by a set of Romantic myth

I felt at the end of this that I hadn't read a novel at all, but an extended hypothetical case study on what couples need to consider once the first fine flush of Romantic Love has faded. The story of Rabih and Kirsten seems constructed to provide opportunities to present the reader with careful reflections, mostly cautionary in nature, on the traps that beset the best intentioned couples.
It does seem a bit odd to me that the characters could be in their early thirties and still not know about s

Alain de Botton maneuvers the reader through time, using a fictionalized couple, Rabih and Kirsten, a perfectly average, normal, couple living mediocre lives from the time before they meet, and after. Interspersed are de Botton’s philosophies that are relevant to this particular point in their lives, going through the years, from the beginning, growing attraction through those early years of parenting young children to reflecting back through the years, where they’ve fallen off course, where the

Thanks to Netgalley for this copy. I LOVE Alain de Botton. I wonder what it would be like to have a relationship with someone with that much insight into the human condition?! In this book he examines the flaws of Romanticism in love. He does this through observing the emergence of a couple ,Rabih and Kirstin.
All the way through the book I completely agreed with all his observations, so astute they made me squirm..

How can a book be enlightening and, at the same time, irritating? That must be a feat in itself, so I guess that's something.

I've been aware of Alain de Botton for years. I've watched most of his documentaries, TED talks, I even follow him on Twitter. So when I saw that there was a new book, a novel, I immediately requested it.

This book is definitely different. It's penned as a fiction novel, but is it really? The fiction part, the story of Rabih and Kirsten, was more of a conduit for the author

Δεν είχα ιδέα ποιος είναι ο Alain de Botton, μέχρι που πριν 2 χρόνια διάβασα ένα εξαιρετικά ενδιαφέρον άρθρο του με τίτλο “Why you’ll marry the wrong person”. Με εντυπωσίασε πολύ η νηφαλιότητα με την οποία αντιμετωπίζει τις ανθρώπινες σχέσεις, χωρίς να γίνει κυνικός ή να προσπαθήσει να απλοποιήσει τα πράγματα σε εξευτελιστικό βαθμό. Έκτοτε, πολλά από τα βιβλία του βρίσκονταν στην to-read λίστα μου και επιτέλους το πήρα απόφαση να ξεκινήσω

Recommends it for: Anyone who has/had relationships
This book is like an applied lesson of psychology: it has great insights about how to make a couple survive and how our childhoods determine patterns of behaviour in our adult lives. However, Alain de Botton has a great article on closeness that I happened to read before and this book is just the extended version of it. Also, although the information you get from it is priceless, from a literary point of view this book is not very good. Hence, the 3 stars.

در بحث رهایی جنسی، حقیقت این است که همیشه رازداری و مقداری خجالت راجع به هم آغوشی وجود داشته است. هنوز نمی توانیم به طور کلی بگوییم خواسته مان چیست و از چه کسی. شرم و سرکوب امیال چیزهایی نیستند که فقط اجدادمان به دلایلی مبهم و نالازم دو دستی بهشان چسبیده باشند:مقدر شده که آنها در تمامی اعصار حضور داشته باشند. همین است که وقتی غریبه ای از ما می خواهد حفاظ خود را کنار بزنیم و دقیقا چیزی را طلب می کند که ما در خفا و با عذاب وجدان آرزویش راداشته ایم لحظات نابی برایمان رغم می خورد.

Laura Spira
The idea behind this book - to invent a pair of characters and to consider the nature of love by tracing their experience from first meeting through the first sixteen years of their marriage - is an interesting conceit. De Botton conducts a forensic analysis of their relationship, principally through the eyes of the husband, interjecting further thoughts on the nature of love at frequent points in the narrative (I found that the authorial voice became very irritating by the middle of the book.)

I love Alain de Botton. How Proust Can Change Your Life is one of my all-time favorite books. I could list his other books that I also love but that would be just about all of them, all that I've read so far, anyway. But his newest work, a novel, The Course of Love, is about as lovely as a book can be.

Ribah and Kirsten meet (in Scotland), fall in love, and get married. That's just the beginning, though. What The Course of Love is really about is what happens after after the "I do," when the "hap

I’m still not sure if de Botton was trying to write an indictment or an endorsement for the institution of marriage and I think that was basically the point. This book is incredibly good. Sickeningly good. I highlighted so many passages that it basically became one long highlight and I’m still thinking about it and working through some of the deceptively simple but thought-provoking passages on the life and marriage of Rabih and Kirsten.

After a couple meets and falls in love, what exactly happens during the “happily ever after?” This is the main question that de Botton seeks to answer in this novel. In the first few pages, Rabih and Kirsten meet, fall in love, and become a couple, but that’s only the beginning of their love story. Throughout this book, the author charts the course of their relationship and all the messy, complicated bits that happen in-between.
