""The Romantic Movement sheds light on the nature of relationships . . . The method of telling much and showing little produces a good deal of wit, cogency, and humor."--John Updike, "The New Yorker
"A reader gets whiffs of Donald Barthelme, Julian Barnes, Woody Allen, the films of Eric Rohmer . . . Mr. de Botton borrows exuberantly, and well, from his forebears . . . therein lies the buoyant charm of the approach."--Lisa Zeidner, "The New York Times Book Review

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

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!

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...

Format: Taschenbuch
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.

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.

Von Ein Kunde am 22. Juli 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
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.
