Customer Review

on 6 January 2011
I received this book as a gift from my sister who thought I might find it interesting as I currently live in France with my French husband. In short it wasn't at all what I was expecting ('funny & engrossing' - I think I may have smiled once & I barely managed to finish it), & although I thought some of it was spot on (eg bookshop manager's reply "because we don't do it, Madame") and certain of the history parts interesting, on the whole I found it a very cold, text book read and a definite struggle to get through. I wasn't keen on her style of writing, finding it quite clumsy & repetitive in places, and although I would be interested to read one of her novels to compare it's not on the top of my list of things to do...
If you can borrow this book off a friend to have a flick through give it a go, if not personally I wouldn't bother.
