really liked it
Read in January, 2009

I quite liked it! I read On Love a few years back, and that one somehow didn't quite keep me very engaged. But this book definitely struck a chord, grin, perhaps because I can definitely be as neurotic as Alice. I thought it odd though that de Botton ended up doing a better job giving insight to the female psyche (though I don't mean to suggest that every girl thinks like Alice). Can't help that feel that the Eric character was never in love to begin with!
