Read in October, 2010

I hoped that a book titled LEFT BANK would actually provide an armchair get-away to that charming area of Paris. Aside from the frequent references to baguettes and cafes, I'm afraid that the novel centered more on a sad, dysfunctional family than on a vibrant neighborhood.

I was tempted to put the book aside after the first 10-15 pages, but I plodded along and became curious as to how the author would resolve the family drama. . . not a book I'd recommend based upon either style or substance.

Shelley If you are looking for a fun armchair get-away and are a francophile like myself - you might want to try Bruno, Chief of Police by Martin Walker. It sounds rather lame but it was surprisingly good. A light mystery.

Thanks for the suggestion. Bruno sounds like fun.
