Having first seen the TV films made form these books it is now very exciting and pleasurable to read the original stories. We have not been disappointed and the pleasure has been enhanced by the addition of surprising aspects of various characters. A thoroughly satisfactory purchase
For real francophiles, those of us who have been involved with France and its people, speaking French as long as we can remember, this book is a true delight. It's a revelationn of what we didn't know we didn't know - and it's hilarious. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Trouble is though - how much will I remember and use? There's the rub.
