Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything? Today should be one of the worst days of 17-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A.
Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley's and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

I have not listened to any other performances by this narrator, but i think she fit Hadley's personality well and did a good job.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was such a cute, heartwarming story! Hadley is headed to London for her father's wedding, and nothing goes the way she expects starting with missing her flight. Basically, the whole day ends up a series of lessons for Hadley that she really needed to learn. While the book was fairly predictable, it was alsoreally sweet and charming. Oliver had such a sweet personality and a great sense of humor. His and Hadley's chemistry was great.
Overall it was a really quick fun listen. I think the author captured a lot of the feelings a teenage girl facing her parent's divorce / new lives apart would be experiencing. It was perfect for a rainy day and well worth the credit.
I love Audible! Being a full time wife, mother, and career leaves no time to actually read. Audio books give me my fix anytime and anywhere.
This novel is short and sweet. Its unabridged so you get the whole story but the perfect length for a short road trip or a day of spring cleaning. The title is what drew me in. Made me tilt my head and say "hmmm...interesting", and really it is.
The story is fun, funny, endearing, tugs at your heart strings just a little, and has you on the edge of your seat for a bit. It is surprisingly well rounded for less than 6 hours of listening and makes "love at first sight" seem like more of a possibility than a dream. This isn't a novel that will consume you but still good stuff, like eating a snack to hold you over until you're next fulfilling meal. Enjoy!
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
I might if I have the habit to read the same book twice it is so good
my favorite character was Charlotte the step -mom she made me laugh a lot and the main character is very good
it was very good but sometimes she mixes the accents between oliver and hadly .. but for most of the story she was good
YES YES YES YES I couldn't stop listening until I finished it
most recommended to all people seeing my review :)
This sweet, light-hearted romance, kept me intrigued enough that I read it in one sitting. The characters are realistic, in that they are flawed, self-centered and insecure. Yet they are still quite likable and sympathetic. This would make a great book to read on an airplane.

Best Contemporary Story!
The whole thing! I can't believe the entire story takes place in a 24-hour period. It was brilliant!
I loved her use of accents and acting out the situations, as opposed to just reading the words. She did a fabulous job!
The scene at the end with Hadley and her dad. No spoilers!! ;)
If you haven't read/listened to this book, you must!! I recommend the audiobook over just reading the book... the performance was wonderful!
I would try another book from this author.
Yes. It was a cute story.
Not that I know of.
Not really. I think the story was told fine in one novel.
