4.0 von 5 Sternen the romantic movement builds up steam
I have to say that at first i was a little disapointed in the sameness between this book and the much loved On-love. To the causal eye it looks like all that changed was the gender of the lead chacter. And the personal verabilty of the first book is gone. Since this book is not based on Mr de botton's own romantic pursuit. I was basicly trodding plasently along...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Philosophic essays for a lifestyle magazine
Romantic movement, being a simple story of an ordinary relationship, combines the common sense wisdom with a philosophical analysis.

The plot line concerns the love affair of two Londoners Eric and Alice, their differences and attitudes towards life, career and their relationship. Every day situations such as shopping, travelling or eating out are then analysed...

4.0 von 5 Sternen the romantic movement builds up steam, 24. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I have to say that at first i was a little disapointed in the sameness between this book and the much loved On-love. To the causal eye it looks like all that changed was the gender of the lead chacter. And the personal verabilty of the first book is gone. Since this book is not based on Mr de botton's own romantic pursuit. I was basicly trodding plasently along when i sumpled on in the middle of chapther entitled "what are we loved for?" It truly is nothing short of genuis. And the book off from there. The ending is so marvlous that a part of me felt cheated it didnt continue. If I had to a mataphor for this book i would use a culinary one. Its like that not only is delisous but healthy and your sadened theres no left-overs

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another delightful de Botton, 20. Juni 2000
Alain de Botton manages to expertly weave much psychology, philosophy & humour into this brilliant work - it's the kind of book you can read year after year (believe me, I have!) & each time you'll get even more out of it. De Botton is truly a ripper of a writer & I can't recommend this book enough -> if you're looking for an author who really seems to understand not only you, but much of the human condition, you can't go past him. Read it & love it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great one, 14. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Alain de Botton's style is unique. While there are similarities between his various books - without philosophical titles - it is none the less very entertaining to read his story. The man is incredibly perceptive and the reader feels as if he had experienced the exact same situations on many occasions. Wonderful stuff...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Philosophic essays for a lifestyle magazine, 3. Juni 2008
Romantic movement, being a simple story of an ordinary relationship, combines the common sense wisdom with a philosophical analysis.

The plot line concerns the love affair of two Londoners Eric and Alice, their differences and attitudes towards life, career and their relationship. Every day situations such as shopping, travelling or eating out are then analysed further by a narrator supplying reader with references to literary and cultural history and examples.

De Botton proves his talent in providing reader with clear explanations of sometimes puzzling, sometimes quite self-evident facts. Many of those engaged in any kind of a relationship would appreciate witty reasoning concerning certain types of behaviour and communication patterns of people "in love".

The ending is quite disappointing though, the chapters tend to be shorter, as if the author lacked proper material and ideas. Considering he was 25 when he finished it, one cannot be surprised.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another Good One from de Botton, 10. September 1999
Von 
A. Ross (Washington, DC) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Like On Love and Kiss & Tell, Botton uses the fiction format to examine a romantic relationship from beginning to end in witty and telling detail. Like these other two books, there are diagrams and charts sprinkled throughout to illustrate various analogies and examples. Here, the relationship is between a 24-year old London woman and a professionally and financial successful 30ish man. As with the other books, there is a lot to be gotten out of de Botton's crisp prose. Read it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen His worst novel, 22. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This novel reads like a pot boiler after On Love. The format and themes are identical but the inspiration of the former work is lacking. The characters are unappealing spoiled brats fail to arouse the empathy De Botton probably intends.
De Botton integrates the thoughts of great writers into his story. At times his parallels are farfetched and one gets the impression that he is merely parading his classical education. These pedantic displays can also be annoying.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creative, comical and highly credible., 10. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
De Botton really gets in touch with his feminine side in this novel and provides a deeply creative and impressive analysis of the female psyche. The characters and their relationship are so credible that this book made me homesick for my former London friends and experiences.The style is simultaneously comical and serious, De Botton playing effectively with strong philosophical arguments to his own witty ends.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Could have gone further..., 2. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Definetely the author could have gone deeper . The subject deserves it and his eloquence should demand it. At the end, unfortunately, there is not so much to take from the book but for the empathy for the drama lived by the female character -- quite familiar to women of the 90s.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great writer, perhaps not his best book, 26. Januar 2000
I love this writer. He's clever, funny, touching. This isn't his best book, for that check out How Proust can change your life and On Love, but once you sample how good he is, you'll start to love whatever he does.
