Anna is in love.
Or maybe not.
She’s a free spirit: definitely happy.
Or is it more panicked?
In any case, she is living life to the full. Or maybe to the edge.
And having a glass of wine.
With a big birthday just around the corner, an important new project at work, and a boyfriend she suspects might be about to ask her a significant question, Anna should feel like she has it all together. But somehow, she just doesn’t seem to be sure about, well, anything. So she gets out her phone and decides to download Kismet.
Will she embrace the life she has, or risk everything for the life she imagines?
Not really into “love stories” to be honest but I liked the idea of Kismet, seems it might not be all about the romance and I was right – this is a journey of discovery for our main protagonist Anna, utterly compelling throughout.
I related to Anna on many levels and that made this a bit of a page turner for me. Stuck in a seeming rut, not really on a level with her friends and in a relationship she may not be as invested in as her partner is, she downloads “Kismet” a dating app that matches you on almost everything. Her current love it seems may not be “the one” who is lurking around the corner and as Anna reassesses everything in her life it is genuinely completely riveting.
This is a very modern tale encompassing many thought provoking themes, Luke Tredget writes with an insightful eye and an absorbing prose that just immerses you into Anna’s world. I loved the technology theme – find your perfect partner with a download – and how the story then proceeded to change perceptions and look at life with all it’s ups and downs.
Yes very good indeed. A read in one sitting pray for a happy ending novel that I would happily recommend to anyone.
