A Paris jaunt

I think you have to have lived in Paris to really understand this entertaining book. It's very well written and really captures the inimitable residents. A very good story line that is full of surprises and liasons. I'm anxious to read more of her books. Well deserv...

Absolument horrible!!!

I can't believe how much I disliked this book. I was prepared to like it, since I'm a huge Francophile, but this was just terrible. Isabel, the narrator, was completely unsympathetic. I couldn't care about her, and the only emotion that she evoked from me was derision. Her level of intelligence was not at all consistent, and I have a hard time believing that a person who had gotten into as many scrapes as Isabel had in her lifetime would continue to be so relentlessly naive. I couldn't understand anyone's motivation, and pretty much all of the characters seemed rather dull to me. I would recommend this book only if you are determined to punish yourself or somebody else for some large sin and need the proper vehicle for penance. Otherwise, avoid this book at all costs.

    Interesting, but slow

    What attracted me to this book was the fact that I have had 5 years of French class. For that reason it was enjoyable to read, and notice all the subtle and not subtle references between the different cultures. I liked the book, but was hoping it would have more charcter development. Worth reading, but not something many people will read more than once.

    can you read French

    This book has a lot of French and big words you have to look up. It rambles on sometimes. It eventually has a good plot. If you can tolerate waiting it gives you a good idea what it would be like for a young American living in Paris.
