    I really hated this book at first and fully expected to give it a 1 star review unusual for me Too pretentious and lacking in intrigue to qualify for decent fun chick lit, too lacking in poignant stories and interesting details to qualify for a worthy memoir, and too self absorbed and lacking in cultural observation to be a decent travel novel These things all seem...

    I don t want to completely slam the author because she is very good at creating visual images for the reader of great food in a beautiful city It s been a decade at least since my trip to Paris but this book does a great job of bringing back memories I also liked her portrayal of her husband I find it a bit trite that she took a formulamatic approach of comparing our two cultures It seems like every American expat living in France that wants to write a book or memoir presents us as the d I don t want to completely slam the author because she is very good at creating visual images for the reader of great food in a beautiful city It s been a decade at least since my trip to Paris but this book does a great job of bringing back memories I also liked her portrayal of her husband I find it a bit trite that she took a formulamatic approach of comparing our two cultures It seems like every American expat living in France that wants to write a book or memoir presents us as the dumb ugly uncultured greedy Americans vs the refined anti American French people It sounded like she was a rich spoiled American and in the future she should sit down, be forced to read The Glass Castle, and shut the %% up At the very least she could use the word I instead of we when discussing how materi...

    I m debating whether or not to give this 1 or 2 stars.This is yet another late 20s early 30s memoir written by a well educated, attractive, intelligent yet incredibly self absorbed, privileged woman If you re into memoirs like Eat Pray Love and Trail of Crumbs then you ll enjoy this book If you re like me and can t figure out why you keep on reading these types of books because the authors drive you crazy with their self absorption, their spoiled woe is me attitude, and their pretentiousness I m debating whether or not to give this 1 or 2 stars.This is yet another late 20s early 30s memoir written by a well educated, attractive, intelligent yet incredibly self absorbed, privileged woman If you re into memoirs like Eat Pray Love and Trail of Crumbs then you ll enjoy this book If you re like me and can t figure out why you keep on reading these types of...
