its a good book to read in the bath, to sit and read straight through without having to go back and ponder of phrases, or re read sections, its a easy reading adult book, perfect after a stressful day when you're brains too tired to function properly.
A distinct lack of laughs, predictable Parisian in-jokes and comments about the tourists and ex-pats... blah blah. Dullsville.
What bugged me most, I think, was the lack of humour and the somewhat amoral tone of the book. The pregnant girlfriend is viewed only as an inconvenience to be got rid of asap - no mention of child support, responsibility or future contact, Laura ends her tepid affair pretty much because Antoine gets on her nerves - you can't help fearing for the future of a marriage between two such shallow individuals.
Generally, the author makes some horrendous sweeping statements about the French and, being a francophile, i resented this. But the thing that really got my blood boiling was when the author made a crack about the Nazi maxim: 'Arbeit macht frei', saying that maybe they had a point after all.
This was the phrase inscribed above the gates of the death camps - and absolutely not a legitimate source of fun anywhere, and certainly not for this reasonably written but ultimately tepid and superficial yarn. Baaaad taste, I'm afraid.
