    An absolutely amazing book that I could not put down! Although fiction, it reads like a real story and it provides historical insights.
    Each chapter is narrated by a different character in this  expansive novel which is sure to create much buzz.

    Weird, odd, and fascinating!!!

    As I am finishing this book, it is hard to believe it is based on an actual person. Another absolutely great read on the NOOK is the "The Partisan" by William Jarvis. This book is also set during war. It also has an awful villian based on a true villian who betrayed his own people. As both books are historical fiction, you will be drawn into the stories. This book took me longer to care about because I did not read about the noble characters which are in Jarvis's book. Sometimes it was hard to like some of her characters. Also, this story jumps from one character to another, while Jarvis's book flows with excellent writing and a consistant voice. Both books deserve A+++++

    Fantastic

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of "LOVERS of THE CHAMELEON CLUB PARIS 1932" by Francine Prone.

    It was a pleasant surprise that I might have missed if I had not received an advanced copy. Turns out it was one of the best books I have read and I've read a lot of books. The style reminded me of the book NIGHT FILM by Marisha Pessl. The author uses several vehicles to tell the story as a whole. For instance one of the vehicles is a fictional book "Make Yourself New" by fictional writer Lionel Maine who is based on the writer Henry Miller and his book "Tropic of Cancer" (in my opinion.) There are several other fictional publications used to make up the body of the book. It may sound complicated but it works very well and moves the book along and keeps you tuning pages. The author brought together some very good characters and in the process brought the novel to a very good ending.

    Over all the book was very interesting with a lot of real people included along with the fictional characters. I would recommend this to my sister and I do not do that lightly. It is very good 4 1/3 stars.

    Historical it is not however as a period piece it works

    Since the alternative gender was more tolerated in France this has now become a popular theme in novels lately to attract readers who like more erotica than is usual as in The Minaturist. Suggest see woody allens Midnight in Paris dvd also suggest get both from your library interesting but not a keeper
