    One thought on “The Look of Love”

    1. I thought this book was terrible, and it baffles me how so many people love it. It reads like it was written by Hipster Seattle Florist Barbie. Everyone has a perfect life. If someone they love died or left them, another person walks in almost immediately to fill the void. In the few cases where that doesn't happen oh-so-conveniently, don't worry because it was only a Lesson to teach them how to Grow as People and they're better off now anyway. Also don't worry because all the widowers and divor [...]

    2. The Look of Love is a standalone, women's fiction novel written by author Sarah Jio. Let me first say that I was in a great book-reading mood when I started this one! The cover art reminded me of the amazing Audrey Hepburn who instantly puts me in a good mood without fail, and the first ten percent or so is set during Christmas-time and I was already feeling incredibly festive. But regardless of these factors, who can't find happiness while reading a book about love??? And it's not your run-of-t [...]

    3. The Look of Love, by Sarah Jio, captivated me from the first page to the very end.The story centers around Jane who was given a gift on the day she was born, "The gift of being able to see love all of its truth and beauty".However, there was one stipulation that comes with this gift. She must identify the six types of love and describe them in detail in her journal, before her 30th birthday, or she will never experience love herself. Set in romantic Seattle, this enchanting story observes a vari [...]

    4. I got my copy free from Penguin’s First To Read in exchange for an honest review so I feel compelled to write something other than “I’m disappointed by such a wasted opportunity for a great story.” There’s so much potential in Look Of Love’s plot and characters that I’m pretty disappointed that it was all wasted on an overly dramatic and overwrought development. It’s like every single word was put in place to play with a reader’s heartstrings but we don’t get to see the entir [...]

    5. What worked for me (being positive first): The location. Loved the Seattle settingSome of the character's story. Loved Mel's for example & wish he got more time. The premise of a "gift" to see loveWhat didn't work for me:Some of the examples of love were not love at all. For example, the ones who were married and finding "love" outside of their spouses. I wanted to scream at them don't you know he/she will eventually cheat on you too once the infatuation stage is gone? I was frustrated at Ja [...]

    7. I enjoyed this story looking at a variety of relationships and celebrating love in various guises. My favourite part was the epilogue. Rounded out so nicely.

    8. I was fortunate to win a copy of "The Look of Love" by Sarah Jio, through the Giveaway Contest, in exchange for an honest review.

Sarah Jio's writing is magical, with intriguing prose, drawing you into this beautiful and captivating story of love, a special treat for the holidays.Sarah Jio brings us a magical novel, filled with love and tears.

    9. It's no secret how much I loved Goodnight June, Sarah Jio's last novel, and I couldn't wait for the release of The Look of Love. I was especially intrigued by how different the book sounded from anything I have ever read. I was in the mood for different, but what I didn't realize until I was completely enchanted by this book was how much I craved reading a love story, something truly heart-warming and emotion inducing. And not only do you get that with this new book by Jio, you get several love [...]

    10. Bloga uzun uzadıya bir yorum yazmaya üşendiğim için yorumum burasıyla kısıtlı kalacak. Yorumuma geçmeden önce bu kadının çiçeklerle derdi ne? Yazarın okuduğum ikinci kitabı ve Mart Menekşeleri'nde de çiçeklerle ilgili şeyler vardı diye hatırlıyorum. Her neyse Esas karakterimiz Jane'in aşkı bulma yolculuğu anlatılıyor. Doğuştan sahip olduğu bir yetenek var. Bu yeteneği sayesinde aşkı görebiliyor. 30. doğum gününe kadar da 6 farklı aşk tipini kişilerle e [...]

    11. I am a big fan of Sarah Jio and was ecstatic to win this book! Thank you ! The Look of Love has a creative and magical storyline that explores the various kinds of love. There were lots of characters that kept things interesting and the different story lines tie together well. (view spoiler)[I wonder why Sarah selected all the characters (except Jane) to be in love with someone married or married and in love with someone else. (hide spoiler)] A perfect read for this time of the year.

    12. I thought this had a lot of potential and there were parts I really liked, but it didn't quite follow through for me . I really like Ms. Jio so I hope she gets her groove back like she had in The Bungalow .

    13. What's happened to you Sarah Jio? Your first 3-4 books were so good! But since then, it's been a downward slide, and with this book, I think you've hit bottom.I was happy to see that even though this book still had a magic/fantasy element to it, Ms. Jio finally deviated from her standard plot formula into something different. Unfortunately, she didn't do it well, and this book really is a hot mess.From a plot with terrible pacing, to inconsistencies in characters and dialog, unrealistic coincide [...]

    14. I got a free, advanced reading copy of this book from Penguin in exchange for an honest review. The Look of Loveby Sarah Jio is a cute story about love in all its forms - from brief sparks of passion to long-lasting companionship and everything in between. The protagonist, Jane, has the magical ability to "see" true love and the plot weaves together the stories of several different couples living in Seattle. I have to be honest, I was disappointed with this read. The plot was original, the chara [...]

    15. Συμπαθητικούλι αλλά κάτι με χάλαγε και δεν ξέρω αν ήταν η μετάφραση ή ο τρόπος γραφής .1,5 αστεράκι για την ιστορία και 1 για το εξώφυλλο (το οποίο αγαπώ) σύνολο 2.5 αστεράκια !!!

    16. The Look of Love is another wonderful book by Jio. The main character, Jane, was very likable, there were great secondary characters, and the storyline was both interesting and fascinating. Since childhood Jane has experienced episodes of blurry vision, accompanied by dizziness. Her doctor believes she has a neurological condition and that she is in dire need of surgery to correct the issue. As Jane turns twenty-nine, she receives a letter from a woman who wants to meet with Jane. This woman, Co [...]

    17. The magical realism books I have read are so magical, so in that way I do not want to call this that. Even though it is.Jane is a normal woman, she loves her flowershop, she has good friends, and life is good. Just, she has never been in love. And then she is told she has a year to find 6 different kinds of love, or else she will never find love for herself.Jane can see love, she has always been able, she has just not known it. And here the magical thing comes in. Her vision gets blurry when she [...]

    18. 2.5 rounded up. I choose this because there's a little Christmas timeline. Besides love, the focus is on flowers and that is the case with most of Jio's books. (I did feel bad that The Language of Flowers has been on my TBR shelf forever and if I wanted a "flower" book I could have read that. Anyway, upbeat quick story with predictable plotlines and characters. It'd make a nice gift for anyone who's a Burt Bacharachamanic!

    19. I wished I could say I loved this book, but I just didn’t. The cover was the best thing about it.The prologue was really catching, and after reading it in a book store I decided I had to read the whole book.But the book in the end was just okay. I liked that it was about love, that it had many stories intertwining beautifully, and that it had a wisp of magic in it, I always love a story with a bit of magic. But the cons overcame the pros.First major con, there were too many deaths and accident [...]

    20. Description- Born during a Christmas blizzard, Jane Williams receives a rare gift: the ability to see true love. Jane has emerged from an ailing childhood a lonely, hopeless romantic when, on her twenty-ninth birthday, a mysterious greeting card arrives, specifying that Jane must identify the six types of love before the full moon following her thirtieth birthday, or face grave consequences. When Jane falls for a science writer who doesn’t believe in love, she fears that her fate is sealed. In [...]

    21. I love Sarah Jio! Her latest book, "The Look of Love" has captured my heart! There are different types of love, and Jane and her friends Lo, Mary, Katie, Mel and Eileen, along with her brother Flynn are each experiencing a different kind -- some types which end in heartbreak, while others lead to happily ever after. I loved the way Sarah weaved their stories together, placing Seattle's Pike Place Market as the setting - such a beautiful place! This is a must read!

    22. Jane Williams has just found out that she has an interesting gift: the ability to "see" when two people love one another. Her vision actually changes to a blurry, cloudy sort of thing and that's how she knows there is real love there. Jane has been given the task of identifying six types of love and writing about them in a journal before her thirtieth birthday. Failure to do this means that she will never find her own true love. Once Jane realizes she has this gift, she also realizes that she's [...]

    23. Jane Williams owns a flower shop in Seattle and it has been in her family for years. Despite her name, Jane isn't your average girl. She has a gift which has been passed to her and she first learns about this gift through an anonymous message on her 29th birthday. Jane can see love; all six types. The message explains this to her and says that she must identify all six types before her 30th birthday if she wants true love for herself. Thankfully, Jane is surrounded by many complex forms of love [...]

    24. Sei volti dell’amore, sei storie, sei relazioni e… Jane.Jane non è mai stata innamorata, ma non sa che in realtà l’amore l’ha sempre circondata, sin dalla nascita.A volte le capita che la vista si appanni, che le vengano dei gran mal di testa e abbia dei mancamenti. La spiegazione che da la scienza è un tumore al nervo ottico, ma le cose non stanno così.Ogni volta che gli occhi le giocano un brutto scherzo, in realtà Jane sta guardando il vero amore.Potrebbe essere una benedizione: [...]

    25. Sarah Jio has been on my "to read" list for a while, so I was a little disappointed in this. It didn't read like a New York Times bestselling author wrote it. It felt more like a debut. A promising debut, but a debut nonetheless. Some of the choices made by the characters seemed random and uncharacteristic, or totally unrealistic, and the way some of the characters' backgrounds were revealed felt awkward and out of place. The prose itself was pretty good, at times very good, but for me it wasn't [...]

    26. This was my first time reading a book by Sarah Jio and it won't be my last. I loved this story and couldn't put it down.The story features the relationships of six couples, all centered around Jane. She needs to figure out what type of love each has before she can find the love of her own. Normally I tend not to enjoy books that feature several different story lines, but in this case Sarah really makes it work. They intertwine in a way that's easy to follow instead of jumping all over the place. [...]

    27. Sooo this best part of this book was the end…the summaries of the different types of love. I didn’t enjoy this book. Jane walking around Seattle, spewing her wisdom on love just irritated me. Plus, HELLO---this is Seattle—famous for the freeze. Strangers are not just going to spill their guts (hearts) to her. And everybody was busting out in tears every 10 damn seconds. And , I’m sorry, but in no universe would the wife be THAT kind to Lo---I will not say more on this to avoid spilling t [...]

    28. As the title suggests, this book is all about love. Several things just didn't make sense to me and the overall book felt a little too rushed. Jane's condition was just too silly. The author has the ability to keep the reader engrossed, I will be looking out for new books by this author but this book missed the mark.
