The best book I have ever read. I carry a copy with me and have gifted many. I first read it in the middle of a toxic relationship and while reading this book I thought I was reading my life.

I wish everyone would read his vast array of work!

Anyone who has read de Botton's other novels will appreciate his philosophical wit applied to what is technically a love story. Told in first person, 'On Love' chronicles the narrator's relationship with a young woman starting with their chance meeting on a plane. He dissects their relationship into stages, almost like the progression of a disease, and makes observations with allusions to Proust and Marx that any bibliophile will appreciate. I found this book while browsing in a used bookstore - read the first paragraph and bought it immediately.
