Review: The Geography Of You and Me – Jennifer E. Smith

The Geography of You and MeThe Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Thanks to Headline publishers for this book!

How did you meet your partner? At school? At work? Owen and Lucy meet whilst stuck in a lift during a power cut which takes over New York.

They form a relationship based on their mutual sadness: Lucy’s parents are always leaving her alone in their NYC apartment whilst they jet off across the world and Owen is grieving the death of his mother. The two embark on a serious case of insta-love and end up spending the night together on the roof of their building. Totally normal for two people who have only just met, right?

Owen and his Dad decide to road trip it across America and Lucy moves to Edinburgh, meaning that Lucy and Owen might not see each other ever again. (Tragic).

So they begin to communicate via postcards from all the places they travel to. Because postcards are deep and beautiful and la di da.

Owen and Lucy have no chemistry, just to point out. Their relationship (for lack of a better word) is just so…over dramatic for a couple that really don’t work together.

This book had so much promise. I’m a sucker for contemporary romance and this sounded like an ideal book. It also explores some beautiful places in the world and I wish the book expressed this more.

  1. I haven’t had much luck with Jennifer E. Smith’s books. I have read 2 and I tried to read this one but I didn’t make it past the 1st chapter.
