Delicious read

I did so enjoy reading of two great cities, wonderful treats to savour. The writing carried me along side her. The swearing, more towrds the end, did leave me with a sour taste. (Please leave it out in your next writing.)

This book took me a long time to read, when that happen's it means it just doesn't "thrill" me. I loved the story about people, about describing Paris, and NY----but (yes there is a but here) too, too, too much about the descriptions of the food. It got really boring after about 2 chapters, and every chapter is filled with it. The book went into depth of the preparation, presentation, taste of the wonderful and smell of a chocolate chip cookie, and a "prestine" macarons. What does that even mean, a "prestine macaron???" What did I learn from this book? That deserts are wonderful.....I think I already knew that. My advice is if your trying to lose weight, or even maintaine your weight, don't read this book.

    This tale of another wanna be rich girl looking for love in Pari

    This tale of another wanna be rich girl looking for love in Paris could have been wonderful if her values had gone deeper. Are we really supposed to feel bad because she cannot afford another dead baby animal skin purse? Does she really not get that French women don't want her to seduce away the few remaining good French men and so do not invite her into their dining rooms...?
    Maybe if she had cared about other people or animals (foie gras cookies, eh?), she would have met a Good Guy, French, American, or African, non? Bien sur, the sweet descriptions are inspiring.
