156 pages long so it can be read in hours.
Has some information on classical writers and poets.
Has nice cover art.
VERY droll and boring to read I couldn't wait to finish it and only did because I refuse to leave a book unfinished.
The story line about this author being stalked lasted well under half of the tiny book and went absolutely nowhere, the stalking wasn't even serious it was just an angry rejected woman venting her annoyance.
Has written a load of information found online and in a few cheap text books to pad out the book with stuff that has absolutely NOTHING to do with stalking.
The author seems to think he is some kind of professional sociologist that could never possibly be wrong even when he himself stalked a girl 8 years younger than him.
The author turns out to be a stalker prowling around the streets at night and the early hours of the morning after a 26 year old who he met at the gym trying to find out where she lived, what she did and had even found out her train and bus routes to work! He hassled her through emails until she ignored him and randomly confronted her after stalking (that she didn't know about) for three months and she rejected him again.
All in all this book is not worth the money I am so glad I bought it second hand and dirt cheap because it really isn't worth the couple of pounds I spent on it.
Gregory Dart takes us through a series of real, anecdotal, and literary examples (some thought-provoking, some funny) of obsessional love, all wrapped up with his own candid account of being on the receiving end, and the effect it had on him. What makes it really refreshing though is that he never chooses to condemn this kind of dead-end desire, but instead seeks to show us how we might make sense of it. Indeed, as the book goes on, he reveals how he too is soon to discover first hand how it feels when love goes unrequited.
