Impulsively Molly decides to hop on a train and spend the weekend in Paris after all. Once in Paris Molly meets a host of people who will change her outlook on life forever, there is Alicia, a carefree Australian girl with no inhibitions, a gorgeous young French artist, and as she sneaks into her boss's hotel in disguise she meets the most unlikely person of all.
For Molly her `WEEKEND IN PARIS' was a life changing experience, for me...it was just OK. There were parts of this book where I found myself laughing out loud while there were other parts where I found my mind completely wandering. I give this book 3 ½ stars because it is very funny in some areas and the descriptions of Paris were very vivid, however, in my opinion Sisman's `JUST FRIENDS' is a much better book.
OK, as it's been said by other reviewers, it's completely unrealistic, our lead character (Molly)competely throws caution to the wind and gets extremely close with a number of different people over 48 hours, but that's half the fun... it's fast paced because of the time frame and the slight lack of realism makes it good fiction with a fairytale feel to it... which is exactly what it is - it never claimed to be a 'guide to what to do on a weekend in Paris'.
In summary... extremely enjoyable... fun, gripping, sometimes emotional and bought back those feelings of reading a story when I was little - like an adult fairytale. Can't wait to try out some of her other books.
Molly has a boring job and leering boss who has promised her a business trip to paris but has more planned on the weekend for molly than just taking down shorthand!!!before she has time to think she has told the lecherus malcom where to stick his job and is sitting on the eurostar pulling into paris, let the adventures begin.. The way paris is discribed is amazing and for anybody whose been there and loved the city it will tugg at your heart strings making you wish you were back. A really enjoyable and easy read!!

Book had crumbs in the pages and looked like it had been read and enjoyed before arrival! A few stained marks on the pages too. A fun book to read, worth checking out though.Published 10 months ago by Customer Review
