Weekend in... my house reading this book!
on 1 June 2005
I loved this book... I simply couldn't put it down... which surprised me immensely - usually I don't go for chick lit, preferring Sci Fi and Fantasy books, but I picked this up as it was a bargain and had a good deal on a Paris travel guide and I'm so so glad that I did.... I spent the entire weekend with it in front of my nose dying to know what happened next.
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.
