1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful - but I still read it to the end, 28 May 2008
This review is from: Left Bank (Paperback)
**Contains slight spoilers** Bought this for 25p at a charity shop so wasn't demanding much for my money. For the first half of the book it was a fun diversion on the bus into work. Depiction of Paris incrediably stereotypical (I lived there when I was 21 myself) but of Parisians themselves quite familiar if one-dimensional. The main issue with the book is the ghastly characters. You start loathing Madison, liking Anna, being slightly bored by Olivier. You end, disbelieving Madison, being totally disappointed in Anna and still being bored by Olivier. It was just weird like Kate Muir wanted the reader to develop amnesia half-way through the book or like someone else (pervy bloke) wrote the second half. What was the deal with the visit to see Anna's dad at the end? Nothing was resolved - we find out she's pregnant but don't get any thoughts from her about how she feels about this. For the first half we hear her inner mind/thoughts but then she becomes a secondary character, the other woman only observed through the eyes of Olivier - and thus reduced to descrptions of her lovely legs etc. Load of rubbish - good job my 25p went to a good cause. It will be going back to the charity shop at the weekend!
