A lovely book that sweeps you into the atmosphere of Paris. I combines history with modern, funny with sad. An easy read that I am thoroughly enjoying.

Excellent reading - funny and informative. Well worth the read. Highly recommend this book to any who have been to France or who wish to go.

 

4 of 5 Stars! '

A pleasing story to read, but occasionally a little tiresome, but definitely worth the read. I can't wait to go to Paris to try out all the places he mentioned.

 

4 of 5 Stars! '

Great to pick up and read - and then find you can't stop. If I ever go to Paris, I will take this with me.

 

4 of 5 Stars! '

an entertaining and light read ideal for the plane on the way to a stop in Paris! I was staying in St Germain des Pres so it was extremely helpful. The historical information gave an added richness to my wanderings. It is well written and would be equally enjoyable for armchair travel!
