Gripping, but it's not going to change the world.
on 4 April 2007
I hate the so called chick lit genre title because it's such off putting pigeon holing. This was a really well written book and you suprisingly find your sympathies constantly changing with the slip into the conciousness of each different character. I must admit that the cover did make it seem a lot more aluring: scandal, intrigue and the international jet set, but it was a little bit more down to earth that that, in a good way.
The view of Paris is very much of an outsider looking in, but it really does capture the spirit of the city.
If you're wanting something to distract you and hold your attention then this is a brilliantly entertaining novel.
