The Four Women is a strange, unique story you can't quite make something of, at first. The strongest thing about it is that it's littered with dark premonitions and foreboding, but it's dosed so measuredly that it will keep you guessing about why what happens will happen - even if you've known it will happen ever since you've started reading the book. I have to say, I had all sorts of theories, but I didn't even come close, so

Breathtakingly original novel!

Grace and her German boyfriend, Matts, are staying in Paris. They're hopelessly in love. Grace is a writer and Matts is an artist.
Whilst dining in their usual cafe, they meet four Parisian women. They speak fluent English, whilst Matts can speak an array of languages. Grace feels left out. The four women introduce Grace to a French tutor, with somewhat unusual learning techniques. So whilst Matts is creating his art for an exclusive client, Grace fills her day learn

The Four Women is an unusual book to define; I have chosen to call it magical realism.

It is set in Paris and revolves around a young couple who are deeply in love. Mats is an artist from Germany, and Grace is a writer. Grace has been befriended by four Parisian women: Ludivine, Marion, Véronique and Eléonore. They are an eclectic mystical group who know details about Grace and Mats that leave Grace feeling uncomfortable. See here for full review

There is real feeling in this book, the all consuming love between Mats and Grace, the paranoia following Grace around Paris, and the dread that builds from the first page.

Well, let's just be upfront here, I REALLY enjoyed the book. The protagonist is Grace who has recently moved to Paris with her artist boyfriend Matthias. I could identify with Grace on the account that she's in this beautiful city that is unknown to her and all she wants to do is fit in with the people, culture and language. I think characters who come across with true human insecurities and traits definitely help readers to fall in love with them and therefore want to carry on observing their j ...more
