did not like it
Read from July 28 to August 02, 2010

I like the interesting tidbits on French culture and language, the witty use of historical characters, the idea of mirrors versus windows, and the emphasis on the importance of thinking. But in the end, those were small tidbits to a slow moving plot that just could not seem to grab me. I was annoyed by the constant Summaries of Everything Important That Just Happened which only made the story feel more forced.
