هذه الرواية جدا رائعة ... أحببتها جدا ... تصور لك كيف عندما نصل في مراحل حياتنا بأن نكون مغموسوون جدا في موقف ما وتترتب عليه كل حياتنا ... كيف علينا أن نتصرف ... هل نستمر وننسى مانحب أم نقف في وجه هذا الانغماس ... لاتفوت على نفسك الفرصة ^^

Last year, I tried reading another book by Danielle Steel called "The toxic bachelor" and to be honest, I couldn't get past page 10. The thing is Steel puts too much effort into the background in order to be done with it the first 50 pages while as I read other books, the background was put by the author all along the book and not all at once in a certain place. That defect made me get bored from the first 30 pages in this book, too. The first 30 pages were dedicated entirely to the background w ...more

Five Days in Paris review

I read Five Days in Paris by Danielle Steel. To begin, I honestly did not like this book very much. It was a very boring book, and the way Danielle explained and introduced new plot was horrible. She would explain the concept bluntly and upfront. Everything was given to you, and to make it worse, she wouldn’t merge the information with what one of the characters was saying or thinking, she would break the fourth wall and say it directly. Horridly boring way to get info

كتاب لطيف و خفيف جدا
موقعه الأفضل هو كاستراحة بين الكتب الثقيلة
فهو لا يسمو بروح أو ينمي العقل
تماما كالوجبات السريعة حينما نتناولها لكسر الروتين
لكنها لا تبني جسدا و لا تنهض بصحة أبدا

I can't believe how unbelievably awful this book was. Having never read a Danielle Steel before thought it would be a quick easy holiday read and would give it a try - the word Paris in the title was the deciding factor. It turned into a speed read just to get to the end. Paris featured briefly as the place that man meets woman.

Will leave Danielle Steel for those who enjoy this kind of thing!

اسلوب الكاتبة ضعيف اوي وكئني بقرا لطفلة في اعدادي .. معرفش يمكن الواحد اتعود يقرا لناس تقيلة فعشان كده لما قريت القصة حسيتها ساذجة والاسلوب ركيك دي القصص الروائية للناشئين بتتكتب بشكل اروع من كدة بمراحل

لكن هي ممكن تنفع فيلم كده يمثله احمد عز ومي عز الدين لكن متنفعش أكتر من كده

This was fine, a quick summer read is all I ask for from Danielle Steel. Although it is frustrating to witness the 'snobby' self importance of the 'well to do' wife of the nice, down to earth guy.

Nice, lovely read. Predictably Danielle Steel which is good for comfort reading. Loved the chemistry between Peter and Olivia but I felt the ending was too rushed.

I picked this book up from the holiday bookshelf as there wasn't anything else and I found myself not really wanting to read it but I did anyway! I found myself slowly enjoying the book more and more as I was getting through it!
The way the author danielle steel developed the characters and their backgrounds and stories made it more enjoyable as it felt like you could probably understand more of what happened with the characters and could have a better relationship with them!

Five Days in Paris by Danielle Steel

If you want to read about a cringeworthy romance, please read this one. Ugh, there was cheating in this book and the main character had NEVER thought about cheating before until he was this particular woman. It was love at first sight, literally. After five days they said they loved each other. What??? That doesn't happen. This man was married to his wife for eightteen years (a shitty marriage at that) and he fell in love with a random woman he had never met before.

His wife and his father-in-l

For something by such a well known author I was sorely disappointed.

Firstly as a lot of people seem to have mentioned the background wasn't well distributed around the book, if she felt the need to tell the whole backstory it would have been less dizzying if she just started from there.

The romance was the typicical plot, cheesy lines copy pasted over and over. Then the worst part for me was the one dimensional characters "pity me I'm a handsome hard working man who's wife doesn't give me as mu

I know Danielle Steel was one of the most noted novelist in the world but this novel, Five Days in Paris was not as grand as her previous novels. The pace of the story was a bit slow-- and fast-- and it was not necessarily boring but redundant. The conflict was interesting. I was told that most of Steel's works are like that, slow building pace of climax but this one was different. Peter's battle with his wife and his father-in-law was boring and every page has the same content. It turned out to ...more

Si tendría que hacer un top de mis mejores lecturas sin lugar a dudas este libro entraría entre los 3 primeros.
Sencillamente es un libro rápido de leer,muy adictivo no contiene una gran historia pero si una muy tierna y algo dramática.

Novel ini sebenernya ayas dapet kiriman koleksi pribadi, dari saudaranya seseorang (?)
tadinya ayas pikir, karena di dalam Five Days in Paris terdapat nama Agatha Christie, kisah dalam novel ini akan menjadi seperti serial detektif novel-novel Oma Christie. Ternyata ini murni romance yang dibubuhi unsur politik.

Tema dan kategorinya lebih cocok dibaca untuk usia 20 tahun ke atas.

Novel ini menceritakan tentang Peter Haskell, anak petani yang punya karir sukses di bidang industri farmasi setelah men

رواية لطيفة وخفيفة تناولت فيها دانيال ستيل موضوع مهم وهو استغلال شركات الادوية للمرضى من جهة وخيانة زوجية من جهة اخرى السرد كان لطيف والعبارات بسيطة جدا اعتقد بانها رواية تصلح للمبتدئين في القراءة او كاستراحة بعد كتاب دسم باختصار جدا هي عبارة عن فلم اجنبي .....

I listened to this novel when I was not in the mood for a mystery. I enjoyed the development of the two main characters. It is a good example of how life tries to twist and turn our morals and goals and then we have a wake up call. It's the kind of book that makes you say "there is hope and love in the world." Read it when you need a book to uplift you and you need confirmation that staying true to yourself prevails. . . If you are a Danielle Steel fan, you will want to read this.

Al vanaf het begin wist je, hoe dit verhaal zou verlopen. Erg veel verrassing zat er dus niet in.
Een farmaceutische fabriek heeft een nieuw geneesmiddel tegen kanker ontwikkeld. Het heeft bijna alle testen doorstaan, alleen een laboratorium in Parijs moet nog wat onderzoek uitvoeren. Peter Haskell, directeur van het bedrijf, is in Parijs om de laatste uitslagen te horen. Die blijken voor hem en zijn firma niet positief: het product zou in bepaalde omstandigheden dodelijk kunnen zijn. Peter moet

I have never read a Danielle Steel book before. I wanted to read a genre that I would never normally read. Loving France as I do, I enjoyed the setting of the majority of the book. However, I didn't really enjoy the characters or the situations they were in. Although I had sympathy for the positions they were put in, I felt their interactions were wrong. There was a lot of repeating the same information throughout the book. Eh...I wouldn't read it again.

Si llegeixes un llibre de la Danielle Steel ja et pots esperar què hi trobaràs. El que no esperava és que el llibre fos tan dolent.

Per començar, el títol: cinc dies a París? En sèrio? Jo compto una nit a París i un dia al sud de França. De fet, si comptes només els dies que ell està a París, no arriben a ser 5 (i això tot i comptar el del sud de França com a París), i ella se n'hi està més, tot i que no saps quants. Però suposo que ven molt més (i sembla molt més romàntic) "Cinc dies a París" qu

One of the reasons I chose this book is that I love to read about Paris. There were a few places mentioned but little, if any, descriptions concerning the city. Much too much time was devoted to character development and that character's feelings (very repetitious). I would have liked for the story to move on. The story line was okay, just very predictable.

رواية خفيفة ،، ممتعة ،، تعطي دفعةً لمن يظنُّ ان الوقت تأخّر ليجد الحب النافع / الحب الداعم / الحب الذي يعطي القوة ويمنح الراحة ،، وليس الحب الذي يجرفنآ لتأنيب الضمير وللاحساس بالذنب او الامتنان تجاه من نحب..

Creo que la mejor manera de comenzar esta reseña es repetir nuevamente que la escritura de Danielle Steel es magnífica. Me deleita en cada página con sus palabras y me pone muy feliz leerla. Respecto a esta novela, tenemos un ritmo muy ágil en la historia y al final te quedas con ganas de leer un poquito más.

Cinco días en París trata de un amor que surge inesperadamente entre dos personas… iba a decir de dos mundos diferentes, pero no es tan así. Peter es un gran empresario en la empresa de su s
