Strange one - read this cos the Likely Lads loved it so much way back when. It had some sweet scenes,loveable characters, beautiful imagery and the wonderful backdrop of the Quartier Latin and its ateliers of late 19th century Paris but overall I couldn't honestly recommend it as a 'good read'. Story wasn't perhaps coherrant enough - too many 19th century wanderings! Trilby was lovely as were Little Billy, Taffy and the Laird - wish they could have had more fun together. It got me dreaming about being a painter and lunching at the Cafe de l'Odeon 'where the omelets are good and the wine isn't blue'.
