Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paris: Biography of a City (Kindle Edition)
This book, as a general read, is quite boring. It mainly covers the buildings of Paris but, I am not sure this would be of interest to anyone who has a desire to know about the buildings since it is not in any detail. Some snippets of information about certain characters and events but it has a tendency to allude to and skip over events that to my mind, would make this book more interesting, for example the incarceration of the monarch during the Revolution or the famous "Pearl necklace scandal. . I certainly wanted a bit more gossip and daily living information. I didn't finish it so t is possible that after the Revolution it all gets better..
