Not particularly entertaining
on 6 February 2016
Boo. I hate writing negative reviews but this book was just not worthy of a good one.
Failing Paris is the story of Sabine Wilcox – a young girl from America studying in France. So far, so good, except that is where the concept gets a little lost and muddied. The story takes place over a few days and is about how Sabine tries to fix a problem that she has encountered.
Great a story set in France with a clear conflict – a great start…except that it just it. There is nothing to make the story plausible or even readable. It just merges into one big confusing blur that doesn’t evoke sympathy or emotion.
Maybe I am being too harsh. Towards the end, the burgeoning relationship between Sabine and Abe does elicit some interest from the reader but it is too short a part of Failing Paris to be actively interested in.
Overall, Failing Paris failed as entertainment.
Failing Paris by Samantha Dunn is available now.
