Review quote

'Fabulously uplifting, romantic and original. Love and Other Dangerous Chemicals fizzes with humour and great dialogue from characters that are delightfully flawed. In case you can't tell, I loved it.' -- Jane Costello A sparkling romantic comedy with some of the most original courting scenes since Leander swam the Hellespont for Hero and the funniest description of an orgasm since the classic Meg Ryan scene in When Harry Met Sally * Library Journal * A delight of a book, a perfect mix of gentle satire, science, and modern romance * * Warm, smart and very funny... A brilliant (scientific) formula * Matt Beaumont, author of E *show more
