Field Notes on Love was a cute story about Hugo, a sextuplet (part of a 6-pack), and Mae (also known as Margaret Campbell). Hugo lives in England, and had planned to go on a trip around the US with his girlfriend, also named Margaret Campbell, who in a strange turn of events dumps him but tells him - hey, you should still go on this trip!
There's a catch. The trip was booked entirely by her, so he couldn't get into any of the hotels or anything without Margaret Campbell being with him with proper identification. So he puts out an ad for a Margaret Campbell. Mae responds to this ad.
Mae is an aspiring filmmaker, who was just accepted to USC but not to their film program. She decides she needs adventure to find herself and experience new things, so she goes for it.
Two strangers meet on a train, and of course, super cliché, end up falling in love. It was a little off-putting how quickly they started making out, I will say that.
Otherwise though, after that one weird point, I kind of just decided to suspend reality and go with it. Hugo is a really really, genuinely, sweet and stand up guy. Mae comes with a bit of 'drama', but not so much that it put me off.
A cute story, cute romance, super predictable, not amazing, but also not horrible.
