Summary

Anna is in love.
Or maybe not.
She’s a free spirit: definitely happy.
Or is it more panicked?
In any case, she is living life to the full. Or maybe to the edge.
And having a glass of wine.

With a big birthday just around the corner, an important new project at work, and a boyfriend she suspects might be about to ask her a significant question, Anna should feel like she has it all together. But somehow, she just doesn’t seem to be sure about, well, anything. So she gets out her phone and decides to download Kismet.

Will she embrace the life she has, or risk everything for the life she imagines?

With the warmth of David Nicholls and the off-kilter charisma of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, Kismet is a love story about imperfect people in a world obsessed with perfect matches.

Critic Reviews

Sharp, witty and full of tension . . . [an] intelligent and highly readable novel . . . Bridget Jones for the Tinder age . . . There are echoes of David Nicholls in his ability to create a convincing female voice and how he keeps the reader guessing.

Irish Times
Critic Reviews

[A] blinder . . . in this recognisable, yet terrifyingly mass-addicted world, everyone has either met their partner on Kismet or is looking for one there.’

Daily Mail
Critic Reviews

A brilliant critique of our age.

Mike Gayle, Metro
Critic Reviews

[This] bright and funny novel asks sharp questions.

Critic Reviews

‘I really loved this book . . . Kismet by Luke Tredget is an original, compelling, intriguing and fascinating novel to stir up emotions and urge readers to really consider the thought-provoking themes unfurling within its pages. Wonderful!’

Ronnie Turner
Critic Reviews

‘I enjoyed it so much, and it was very different to what I expected . . . My first thoughts were that it sounds perhaps a little like something from an episode of Black Mirror, but equally that it seems appealing to take the endless swiping and creepy pick up lines out of dating apps . . . I enjoyed the witty, well written take on dating apps . . . if you're into romance, this will definitely be your thing.’
