    "Liked but..."

    This is a cute and, at times, funny story. But I like a lil sumthin' with my romance, and this story had too little. There are no sexual encounters described, though there are a few alluded to. And there are a few kisses. But I don't regret purchasing the story. It's a meaningful, cute story with a small degree of depth. You can get overwhelmed with the repetitiveness of some parts. All email addresses are read out in total along with footnote citations. That can get tiring, but it didn't detract from the story to me. But I know it will for some listeners.

    "Ugh, do NOT get this book"

    I thought it might be fun to listen to a story about a scientific experiment regarding the female orgasm and a male Dr. And see where it went from there, after all I am a scientist and really enjoyed te book the theory of attraction so this should be awesome ....*sigh*, NOPE!

    I knew I was in trouble at word one, the narrator sounds like a 45 year old British noble....he is neither young, nor does he understand he is conducting experiments about sex. He is soooo clinical that this book is presented in the form of his research paper, complete with abstract and clinical footnote excerpts from other people's work. This doesn't just happen once it seems to occur often. Add that to the 45-55 year old narrator vision with a grad student and it just got really skeezy, and not in a good way.

    I only got an hour into it and had to stop, too much like pulling teeth, and watching a car accident.

    Story
    "No Thank You"
    Would you try another book from Anthony Strong and/or Simon Vance and Kate Reading ?

    Vance is phenomenal (except when impersonating a female climaxing)


    Has Chemistry for Beginners turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Simon Vance was born to read books aloud, but his talents weren't highlighted in this venture.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Chemistry for Beginners?

    If was the editor, this would have been a short story.

    "Quirky Story"
    If you could sum up Chemistry for Beginners in three words, what would they be?

    Quirky - Fun - Romantic


    Any additional comments?

    A pleasant surprise. I don't quite know what to say other than I enjoyed it as a unique change of pace in the romance genre.

    "Just too slow and I didn't find it to be funny"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Others have enjoyed it... that's why I purchased it. Read other reviews to see their opinions. I just found it to be so slow... normally I listen to a book in less than a week and this took me over a month. I just kept wanting to quit but I kept thinking it would get better. I didn't. Just wasn't for me.

    "Awesome Nerd Romance"

    I really liked this funny tale of love and sex among science geeks. I plan to read more Anthony Capella (author's real name) books soon!
