  • Chick lit and horribly written It has the feel of Sex in the Citybut in Paris The plot was interesting, but has been done so many times It wasn t done well here Yet another American girl moves to Paris The main character Klein , a fashion designer painterif she wasn t so full of herself, this could have been a fun read But seriously, how many times do we have to hear how hot she is and how French women hate her So many things annoyed me she wanted to move to Paris to find the man of her dreams w [...]

  • Girly reading, though it did make me miss Europe Sort of funny, though the main character was a little annoying sometimes.

  • As I mentioned in one of my updates while reading Paris Hangover, I started reading this book to kill time, but instead, the book just ended up killing me So I ll start off by explaining my 1 star rating 1 star for the shallow, judgemental, and frankly unbearable protagonist 1 star for the series of complete and utter jerks that this woman dates and doesn t have the self respect to leave 1 star for the number of chances Klein gave Alexandre even after he cheated on her and admitted he wasn t att [...]

  • Sex in the City of Paris Yet another American girl moves to the City of Light to chercher l amour If the protagonist, a fashion designer cum painter named Klein, wasn t so full of herself, this would have been a deliciously fun romp How many times do we have to hear how hot she is and how French women hate her With a mindset like that, it s no wonder Like all the other novels set in Paris that I ve read lately, most of the men come off as shallow, philandering flakes who are hung up on the super [...]

  • Loved this book of an expatriate American who moves to Paris to find Mr Right A very autobiographical account of a life lived in a small Parisian apartment in Saint Germain and the tales of French men, French nightlife and French lovers, until she settles on Mr Right A fun, episodic, tale of living in Paris.

  • This was such a fascinating idea, and there were anecdotes and scene settings that I absolutely loved I had two big problems with it A It was clearly written as a memoir the author blurb states that the author also gave up life as a New York fashion designer to live in a tiny apartment in Paris and then lightly fictionalized, but would have worked much better as a memoir than as fiction B the editing was so slipshod that whole chapters were almost unreadably distracting I borrowed this book from [...]

  • Heavily qualified 3 stars this book is preeetty trashy BUT if you re looking for a beach read after a trip to Paris, it hits the spot I also thought the writing got substantially better in the second half or maybe I just got used to it.

  • This is probably the trashiest book I ve ever read.Lent to me by my aunt, I attempted to use this to help fill the 9 days til the release of the special edition of Eclipse, even though I didn t want to be looking at any other book, heheh It s possible that my opinion of this book suffered some because of that, but I really don t think so.Frankly, Klein the main character is just about the opposite of me somewhat obsessed with high fashion, painting, Frenchmen and Proust I suppose I sort of got a [...]

  • I couldn t finish this book before it was due back at the library, and frankly I don t care that I can t renew it again All the brand name dropping was driving me crazy You can establish the main character is a label whore very quickly you don t have to keep saying what brand everything is throughout the whole book The only thing that kept me reading was the fact that this was obviously a very thinly fictionalized version of the author s real life adventure of dropping everything and moving to P [...]

  • I just finished reading Paris Hangover about a week ago and I found this prose extremely well written and very enveloping Kristen Lobe, bring main character, Klein, alive After traveling to Paris this summer I had really high expectations for this story and Lobe did not fail Not only did she make believable and lovable characters but she knew the city like the back of her hand It was absolutely wonderful and made me feel like I was in Paris again Such vivid descriptions I would definitely recomm [...]

  • I liked this book mostly because of the end Throughout the whole story the main character, Klein, spends the majority of her time trying to define her life by chasing French men who treat her badly, play games and ultimately end up having so many issues she just moves on to another I do admire her giving up her luxe lifestyle in NYC to move to France and follow her dream of becoming a painter, but she is SO promiscuous Sheesh The best part is when she finally decides to find herself and then tru [...]

  • This book fulfilled my fantasy of running off and renting a tiny apartment in a beautiful old building in Paris It reads partially as a journal, partially as a to do list for a woman determined to find that perfect someone so she could have a baby Of course, nothing ever turns out the way we plan, and her journey has lots of unexpected turns and lots of personal growth I loved it mainly because I m a Francophile I m not sure that anyone who isn t would enjoy this read as much as I did For me it [...]

  • Picked this book up in the hotel I was staying at when I finished my last one in Cusco In my defense there was a limited choice of English books I found this book terrible The main character was pretentious and completely unlikeable On and on and on about finding the right man, hypocritically condemning men for selecting only the most beautiful women then in the same breath extolling the aesthetic virtues of every man she meets and crossing off potential lovers based on the lack of them So annoy [...]

  • If this was the first chick lit book I ever read, I would probably have never read another one.Yes, it s trashier than most I could get through that.What I could not get through was how pretentious the main character was If it wasn t the use of her last name as her first name, it was the constant designer name dropping that occurs on every single page.The author literally waits until the last two chapters of the book to try to turn your opinion of the main character around.I literally feel like [...]

  • This would probably always be considered chick lit but it was different than average because the author actually did pack up and move to Paris just like her character In the book everything doesn t go perfectly for Klein the main character and it doesn t end all happily ever after for her the way it does in most books of this genre That s what sets it apart, gives it 5 stars and makes me recommend it to anyone and everyone even if they don t read chick lit.

  • I can not articulate how much I love this book I love her narrative, her descriptions, her relationship honesty I have read this book four times now I pick it up whenever I need some inspiration or my life feels so boring I need an escape I once read the whole book out loud to three of my friends on a road trip to Vegas I did all the accents, my girlfriends thought it was way better than the radio They couldn t get enough.

  • I really enjoyed the conversational style of this book and the elegant, snobbish, yet down to earth approach of the writing It took me to a fanciful, carefree world where worries are not that worriesome, money is not always an issue, and work is not scheduled 9 5 It s exactly what I like in a chick fiction book On to the food Lots of food in this book While it dries, I take a break to smoke a cigarette or have a quick thon baquette tuna sandwich, en francais.

  • Chick lit, but not a horrid book It was written in the Sex and the City style for sure, which, while I don t love it, worked for this book I found myself jealous of Klein s determination in moving to Paris and only wish I could do the same By the end of the book, I did love the French I managed to pick up.

  • I read this book when turning my memoir into a novel My memoir turned novel became a young adult book instead of a steamy adult book fit for a season of Sex and the City abroad My young adult novel, The Take and Go, was an entry in s Breakthrough Novel Award Alas, it did not win, but it is under consideration as I type.

  • If you want to escape from your dull, boring world for a few hours and be transported to Paris, then this is the book for you I couldn t put it downterally It s sexy and engaging and you ll find yourself emersed in the main character s world.Definitely a perfect choice for summer My next read is going to be her second novel French Trysts.

  • the main character did t have any depth at all she was very shallow and only i interested in sleeping with beautiful men it was really hard to get through this book as it doesn t read very fluent she does change at the end of the novel but it is literally in the last chapter not worth the rest of the novel for the last chapter.

  • The plot was a bit stop and go Overall it speaks to those who are confused as which path to follow and expects those to follow their dreams I quite liked the ending of the book it made me feel good Like everything will eventually work out how we want it to, just not like how we originally envisioned.

  • This book is fun if you ve ever dreamed of chucking it all and running off to Paris, which of course I have I enjoyed the main character s growth and the description of the city If you re not a Francophile, you might find it a little slow.

  • Just starting this book today need something light and distracting Has anyone else read this Not very impressive but pushing through just to see what happens and if it gets better Half way there.

  • I loved this book I chose this book because of its cover,then the name.I thought it was very witty I enjoyed reading it, from the very beginning.I caught myself laughing out loud many times I totally recommend it to people that love reading stories from writers that that are humorous.

  • Loved this book A gifted writer, very funny and clever and had style and pizazz although it is impetuous in parts, much like the character Dialogue stilted in the girlfriend conversations and tying in her family seems like an afterthought, but a fun read.

  • Mid western girl, working in New York, goes to live in Paris and run through French boyfriends on the way to finding a husband Sexy, diary like I am an American living in Paris style , and a fast read, I found it very entertaining When in Paris, be daring

  • A little long, but interesting with great scenic descriptions Really takes you inside the ex pat life in Paris Overall a good book although it could have had a better ending I predicted it from the middle.
