Comments One True Theory of Love

  • Liza Gilbert

    Ugh. Where to start? Well, I am the staff portion of a library book club, and this was a book selected before I came on board. The best I can say about it is that the font was nice and large and it was a quick read. As for the not nice things? Let me make a list:1) The main character identifies herself as a good person because she is a good kindergarten teacher. She judges this by the fact that she wears high heels, bold polka dotted dresses, and colorful earrings because the children like it. S [...]


  • Kathryn

    this book had a great message, but it was hard to get past the language. Meg finds out that her husband has been having an affair at the same time she tells him she is pregnant with his childhe still leaves. she falls apart wondering what she did wrong and struggles with her self worth. She devotes her full life after that to her son Henry who is now 9. She has sworn off men up until she happens upon Ahmed at a coffee shop while playing chess with her son. Should she give Ahmed a ticket into her [...]


  • Nora

    This was a very sweet book. I really liked the main character's relationship to her son. The problem I had with it was that there is no real overriding problem to be solved. In the last third of the book, it seemed more that the author was making a checklist of ways to extend the narrative than actually exploring the characters. Meg needs to get out more and find a boyfriend: done. She needs to have a better relationship with her ex-husband: done. She needs to see her parents as real people: don [...]

    One True Theory of LoveDevo esser sincera, mi aspettavo tutt'altro! Dalla copertina pensavo fosse una storia incentrata sul melting pot culturale, su una relazione amorosa tra un'americana e un iraniano. Speravo di leggere le stesse emozioni che avevo trovato in Colazione da Starbucks, primo libro di quest'autrice. In realtà la copertina è molto fuorviante, qui si racconta la storia tra un uomo e una donna che ha paura dell'amore, a causa di pesanti delusioni passate. Il fatto che lui sia iran [...]


  • Cate

    This is one of those books about which I am neutral. It was mediocre. I was mostly engaged in it, but it's certainly not something that will stick with me for very long at all.


  • LindyLouMac

    One True Theory of Love disappointed me, after having been on a Bookcrossing Bookring list waiting to read for two years. I assumed it was something I must have wanted to read because I had enjoyed her previous novel Veil of Roses. To be honest I could not remember much about it, so I checked back to my review before writing the review for this one. It seems that did not meet my expectations either.I do seem to be in the minority with my opinion on this one though, if you take a look at what the [...]


  • Bunny

    Entertaining, likable characters. Good story line.


  • Mark Howell

    This book I'd say actually rates about 3.25 stars. The reading is easy and straightforward and well, for my first venture into romance-lit, wasn't too painfully bad. (If you're looking at this review from the main book page, if you look about 2-3 reviews down, that Jenn girl is the one who put me up to reading a romance novel--I read it first and sent it on to her)Truth is, I liked it so much not for the writing or the plot, but the characters. I can understand Meg and her issues, having been in [...]


  • Margherita Dolcevita

    Dalla quarta di copertina una potrebbe legittimamente aspettarsi un romanzo d'amore e di scontro tra due culture: quella di lei, americana, e quella di lui -dal passato tormentato (maddechè!)- iraniana. Questo anche in virtù del precedente romanzo dell'autrice incentrato su una ragazza persiana in cui lo scontro tra culture era evidente. Ecco, in questo libro nulla di tutto ciò. Ahmed è l'uomo perfetto. Bello, di classe, benestante, ottimo lavoro, dolce, ama i bambini, tutti i pregi che vi v [...]


  • Michelle Robinson

    I wanted to love this book, as I loved Veil of Roses by this same author. However, I found this book frustrating and for me, it required me to suspend belief one too many times.I really enjoyed Ahmed and Meg. However, there were some things that happened that made me feel really frustrated. They came across as just alittle hard to believe.The child in this book is precocious and adorable probably a little more so than some people will be able to take.Meg's mom is over the top mean, at times, she [...]


  • Liv

    Overall: I really liked this book. It wasn't your typical romance novel. It had a different point of view, focusing on the people around the main characters as well as her and her relationship. The idea of the "Hokey-Pokey" theory was very cute. I also enjoyed the different aspects that she brought to her kindergarten class. The book was extremely cute. I like that it showed love at many different stages. I feel that this was a nice touch. The whole Johnathan thing was very unexpected. The whole [...]


  • Jenn

    A nice, quick, easy read. It's basically about a woman who is very cynical and scared when it comes to relationships (based on past experiences). Then she meets Ahmed, with whom everything seems to click, and she changes her mind. But they still have tons of hurdles to overcome. The main character, Meg, annoyed me quite a bit from the very beginning. Ahmed, however, is pretty much the male version of me. I'm not a big fan of authors creating a fictional story but including things from their real [...]


  • Elena

    A friend recommended this book to me because she said that the main character reminded her so much of me and I just had to read it. I'm glad I did. It was a quick and easy read--great for summers at the beach or by the pool. It's not a book you need to study but it is a beautiful little story. If I'm anything like the main character I hope my ending is like hers (yeah, if you've been reading my reviews, I very much prefer happy endings). Another great thing about this book is that it explores (i [...]


  • Anita

    Meg Clark has a Hokey Pokey philosophy of life, you put your whole self in! Meg is a single mom with a nine year old son, Henry who she devotes herself to whole heartedly. She and Henry have a chance meeting with Ahmed, an Iranian-American at a coffee shop over a game of chess, and Meg feels an amazing connection to him. Meg is also dealing with the separation of her own parents and her sister's unhappiness with her own life. The thing I liked about this book, was the relationship complexities, [...]


  • Cheree

    This was a fascinating story of many different relationships. The main character's theme for life: "Put your whole self in," is taken from "The Hokey-Pokey," which she uses with all her students as a kindergarten teacher. It's a story of forgiveness, acceptance, judgments, perceptions, living life vs. being "safe," honesty, love, and many other virtues. It examines Meg's relationships with her son, ex-husband, new boyfriend, father (and new girlfriend), mother (and new boyfriend), sister (and he [...]


  • Sarah Hykes

    I picked this book up at a discount store mainly due to the price - however, it has become one of my favorite books of all time. I have read it several times in the past few years's a cute, love story. I guess I mostly enjoy reading it because it gave me hope. After a divorce & leading a life as a single mom, I can relate to the main character and her love of her son being the number one concern in her life. She has no expectations of finding love again and one day it just simply appears. Su [...]


  • Laura

    I loved it. The writing is clear and crisp. I was drawn in by the very beginning, as the story opens on the main character's thoughts about men, and then transitions to her daily routine in her kindergarten classroom. It was so well-written that I felt immersed in the story, and experienced the highs and lows along with the main character. It's quick-paced, but deep. The characters, and their interactions with each other, felt real. Definitely one I would read again.


  • Krista Basilio

    This was a wonderful, heart-warming tale of a mother who has to recover from her heart break for the sake of her son, who then becomes her life. When a man who reaches past her barriers comes into their life, she realizes that both she and her son have been missing something after all. And not only does she have to learn how to let him in, but also how to deal with her parents' breaking up. A must-read for all lovers of romance, women's fiction, and just good stories.


  • Mairin

    This is a great book, I stayed up and finished it in one sitting. Similar to Veil of Roses, one of the main characters is of Iranian descent, however this book concentrates less on the differences in culture and the family's opinion of the relationship and more on the relationship itself. The book looks at healing yourself after a bad relationship and learning to trust and love the people around you no matter what their faults.A great book - I highly recommend it.


  • Kasey

    Really enjoyed this book. I think the last few I've read have either been romance candy or lacking in character development. Not this book or this authorwho I would definately read again. (You put your whole self in. Read the book to understand.)Meet Henry.loveable, perfect, nine-year old Henry & his mom Meg. While I can't give you the whole rundown let's just say I want to eat Henry up!! For every single mom out there who needs a boostad this book! Very good!


  • Karina

    This was a wonderful, heart-warming tale of a mother who has to recover from her heart break for the sake of her son, who then becomes her life. When a man who reaches past her barriers comes into their life, she realizes that both she and her son have been missing something after all. And not only does she have to learn how to let him in, but also how to deal with her parents' breaking up.A must-read for all lovers of romance, women's fiction, and just good stories.


  • Just - The romance reader

    I was immediately smitten with Meg. Her unquestionably strong bond and undying love for her son were both inspiring and heartwarming. And Henry? Well, he was a little boy after my own heart. Witty, smart and wise beyond his years, Henry was pretty great. One True Theory of Love is both funny and full of love, not just between a mother and son, but between friends, lovers and teacher and students.


  • Tiff

    It was a bit hard to start at first but I like Meg. She's actually really real (yeah i'm going for that) and I like how the guy is really really well-described. (haha! George Clooney eyes) I think she was thinking of Ramin Karimloo. But I thought the writing style was okay. It wasn't that fantastic but nevertheless!


  • Jennifer

    A single mother deals with her kooky family, falling in love again, and the surprise return of her ex after 10 years. I actually thought this book was going to be chick lit, but it was slightly deeper than that. 3.5 stars for me as it was good but not great. Interesting and quirky characters but the writing was a bit uneven.


  • Rachel

    I loved the writing in this book, and after reading a series of books where I didn't really like the main character, I sympathized and really liked this main character, a single mother preschool teacher. The plot was complicated and the other characters--her parents, sister, ex-husband, boyfriend, and son--are drawn with depth and compassion. I look forward to reading her other books.


  • Andrea Lundberg

    One stupid thing about this book - if her ex-husband left long before the baby was born, why on earth would her son have his last name?? You'd think she would have gone back to her maiden name and given her son that name as well.Found this book fluffy and kinda silly. Ripped through it really quick


  • Stephani

    While the message of the book was sweet and something we should all learn (to put ourselves all the way in to life) the language and the way the book was written was not up to part for me. However if all you are looking for is a sweet sentimental and touching book with absolutely no brain cells needed then this is your book


  • Angela

    This was a cute book perfect for entertainment purposes only. If I delve myself too deeply into it I found the characters to be annoyingly immature and the main character, Meg, her rose colored glasses were just a little too bright for my liking but on the surface the book is a great summer read for lovers of chick lit.


  • Paige Bradish

    This book inspired me. A women who has a younger son, and also just divorced was able to find a man to fall in love with. That almost never happens. Especially to single mothers. She did good finding someone to love her forevr.


  • mELT

    I expected so much more out of this book. It's a quick, light read, but it also lacked a lot of depth. Meg also annoyed the heck out of me! She seemed like she didn't know what she wanted all throughout the book, and it dragged on for what seemed like forever. It could've been much better.
