it was amazing
Read from October 19 to 25, 2011

If I turn up missing one day soon, it is because I have run away to Paris after reading this book. I cannot say one bad thing about this book. I loved it and it made me nostalgic for Paris after going there this summer. This is one of my favorite reads of 2011.

I think Lebovitz was spot on with his observations on Paris and the Parisians. I am surprised at the reviews fault him for "complaining" about the people of Paris. If anything, I think he was more disparaging of the obnoxious American tourists - and rightfully so!

I found myself sympathizing with Lebovitz so many times and shouting out, "Oh my God! That SO happened to me!!!" I loved his humorous take on his experiences in Paris. I also found myself insanely jealous of the amazing experiences he has had living there, taking full advantage of his time living abroad.

This is a must read for anyone who has traveled to Europe and can appreciate the quirky differences between the culture of Europe and the U.S.
