Product Description

Review

"Rich in fascinating details about the art and culture of Paris, Hina's debut novel is a terrific literary love letter to the City of Light... The writing itself is imbued with a stylish sense of wit." -- Booklist "Metaphors, similes, and literary references abound in this ornately written novel of self-discovery." -- Library Journal "This is an entertaining contemporary relationship drama in which Paris owns the story line." -- Harriet Klausner

Product Description

Post-grad neuroscience student Daisy Lockhart has never been short on brains, but after her longtime boyfriend, Andy Templeton, dumps her through e-mail, she is short on dreams. Alone for the first time in six years, Daisy allows herself to finally be an individual instead of half of a couple.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review 8 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this quite wordy - I don't think there was any need for the 'Blousy Narrative'. I got the feeling the author was trying too hard to impress

I have never not finished a book..until now.
This book just didn't seem to get going.
The ideas seems good, but I just couldn't get along with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plum Blossoms in Paris 11 Dec 2012
By LyndaK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried to get into this book but like a previous reviewer I found it very verbose - it took about 3 pages to say what could have been said in one paragraph. I persevered but finally gave up at chapter 6 when I found myself skipping pages. Sorry.

A different style of writing that is entertaining and stimulating. Various topics and aspects of culture are explored in the protagonists mainly mental journey of self-discovery. Its slow paced, although not leisurely, even intense at times because of the topics discussed. However, for a work of fiction the plot required more substance, more of a story. If you want to read something fast-paced and action packed, then this is not for you. If, however, you are interested in reading something that is slow-paced, a work of fiction whereby the protagonists main journey is a mental one, through exploration of various mostly cultural ideas, then you may be interested in this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly tedious 19 Nov 2012
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I suspect there might possibly be a good story in here if one could tolerate the sheer, inane verbosity of the author, who seems to be suffering from the delusion that this is great literature. It is not and never will be. the superflous purple prose is extremely tedious and gets in the way of the narrative to the point where I just gave up on it.
