The book focuses on two characters. Mia who is an English actress who I guess is famous. And Paul, who is a writer who has become a success in Korea. Yeah you read that right.
I would honestly just say that this book is the literary vers ...more
I will admit it took me a bit to get into the writing style. (I often wonder how much is lost in translation??). However, it is a short book and I was engrossed before long.
This is the kind of book that puts a smile on your face while reading. I can definitely see this as a movie that I would enjoy watching. A great, light-hearted, short summer read.
On the big screen Mia plays a woman in love. But in real life, she’s an famous British actress in need of a break from her real-life cheating husband. She escapes from London to Paris behind a new haircut, and a waitressing job at her best friend Daisy’s, restaurant. Paul is an American author, living quietly in Paris, and doing his best to stay out of the literary spotlight. When Paul’s best friend secretl ...more
[November 13, 2020] The story is about a British actress who I imagined Lily James playing fleeing England to France to run away from her cheating husband, who is co-starring in their upcoming movie. She changes her looks and works as a waitress in her friend’s restaurant. On a dating site, she meets Paul, an American author who is also running away fr ...more
His writing skills and storytelling did remind me of a once famous writer in my native country; Margarida Rebelo Pinto, o ...more
Although I hated Daisy for a big chunk of this book but I really wanted to visit her bistro someday.
It's a very charming story set in Paris with witty characters. The turn of the events were unpredictable and some were serious.

The story is like a normal Bollywood film. Paul is a great character. Anyone who is a writer will love his character. Actually what make ...more
I had never read Marc Levy but obviously knew him by name. This is an author who sells a lot of books every year, and one of the French authors the most “profitable”.
This book contains some very funny passages, misunderstandings, and dialogues with cute puns. Sure, it's not great literature, but it is such an easy and enjoyable read that ...more

UNTIL I reached 75% 😳😳😳
It was a twist you cannot see coming and breathes excitement into the story. It's a bit like being served vanilla ice cream for the 20th time, which is perfectly fine and enjoyable... hard to get wrong... and you're settled in with that... and then your friend drizzled balsamic vinegar on it and you thi ...more
You know the way a books is sometimes a perfect balance of what you want in a book right at that moment? I wanted a light and playful yet deep and thoughtful book. Those books are difficult to find. This book was everything I hoped and wanted it to be!
This was my first time using Kindle First. The idea behind the story was intriguing, but the execution was lacking in my opinion. I'm not sure if this book was translated from French, so that might be part of the problem. But ultimately it came down to the characters, both of which I had trouble connecting with. I liked how they first met but never understood how they weren't honest to each other, their friends, or themselves.
I liked the book more once they arrived in Korea and where th ...more

Easy read, with a mostly predictable plot but still fun. Two things annoyed me: the super famous, beautiful, rich actress sulking about her life and going on a dating website (pretending to be her friend, a French chef) and meeting a great guy within seco ...more
Dec 19, 2017 edit:
I felt like giving this book another try since I had owned it since Aug 2017 and the year is coming to a close.
Yes, it is a romance and somewhat comic and had more merit than I originally gave it credit for. I am glad I went back to read again as it did amuse me. There were some reali ...more
I love the scenic descriptions of Paris in "P.S. From Paris " by Marc Levy. The author creates amazing artistic impressions that I can only visualize. The Opera House, the streets, the hotels, the stores, the cafes, and the Restaurants and the scenic water. I can also taste the food that sounds so delicious. Paris truly sounds like an enchanting place to be.
The genres of this story are Fiction and Romance. The timeline is set in the present. The setti ...more
