Date Night at Union Station, E.M. Foner


I picked this up hoping for that rare blend of sci-fi and romantic comedy. It's not bizarre enough to be Douglas Addams, and it's not Connie Willis by a long shot, although this is clearly a popular series - there are rave reviews on Amazon and the author has published 11 books (as of this date).

The world Foner creates is charming, with likeable characters in comic situations: the plot essentially follows two main characters going through a string of bad blind dates until they find each other in the last chapter at which point, they seem like the last two normal people in the galaxy, and perhaps that explains why they connect--? 'Fall in love' would be too generous.
