It is ludicrous, appalling written, implausible and all together dreadful.
I read a few unfavourable reviews but went ahead and bought the book anyway. If you read this review, take my advice and don't buy it.
So she goes to Ireland. Awww, awesome choice there. I would love to visit Ireland and it was amusing when she saw the differences between Parisians and the Irish. Also she sure felt French with her love of ciggies, and thinking of wine.
The book is her trying to live again, to find the will to live and it really is about her. Yes she meets other people, but this is someone who is trying to find something inside of herself that tells her that life can be worth living.
The blurb tells about a man, and yes there is an annoying man that she gets to know. But this is not a romance, and do not expect a romance. A man can not cure something she has to find out for herself. New love is not always the answer to everything. Life is not always that simple. But it was a nice turn of events cos that man was grumpy! So very grumpy, and his grumpiness makes her mad. And any feeling at this point is a good feeling.
It was short and nice. I enjoyed it.
Although the story was enjoyable and heart wrenching in places I'm not sure I was fully invested in the characters lives. Even though it finished in a reasonable fashion it has been left open enough for a sequel which I've learnt is due out in 2017

Bad idea to expect more. The plot and storyline were too predicable and I found the characters hard to recognisePublished 4 months ago by judith
