Two random strangers. Thirty-six questions to make them fall in love.
Hildy and Paul each have their own reasons for taking part in the psychology study (in Paul's case it is the $40, in Hildy's the reasons are significantly more complex). The study poses the simple question: Can love be engineered between two random strangers?
Hildy and Paul must ask each other 36 questions, ranging from "What is your most terrible memory?" to "When did you last sing to yourself?" By the time Hildy and Paul have made it to the end of the questionnaire, they've laughed and cried and lied and thrown things and run away and come back again. They've also each discovered the painful secret the other was trying so hard to hide. But have they fallen in love?
36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You is a cute little read, despite its long long title. To be honest the title makes it appear that this is more a physiological book rather than a romance with physiological basis for falling in love.
Hildy and Phil have never met before they are thrown together in an experiment to see if 36 questions can make you fall in love. At first Phil is not interested in the questions, he just wants his 40 bucks. But as soon as Hildy storms out meaning he cant get his money., he becomes more invested and starts answering properly.
Slowly they both develop chemistry and as they talk to each over, over text, email and finally face to face they reveal some of they biggest secrets. I liked it when they were finally honest with each other. But it did take a long time to get to that point. Mainly because there was a lot of will they, won’t they. And dialogue before one of they would get offended and the other would fret.
I wanted a bit more action and reaction to make this the perfect read. However, I did enjoy the story and once I started reading I couldn’t put it down, so this book was a winner in that sense.
36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You is a quirky and cute read, which slightly suffers for being predictable but nevertheless an entertaining read.
