In Paris with You was a unique book for me, despite its somewhat formulaic romance plot (which isn’t a bad thing!). Why?
- It’s translated from the original French, which means that the takes on the characters are different than you might get in a book originally in English. Specifically, Eugene is allowed to be slightly depressed, and that’s totally normal.
- The hero is named Eugene.
- It’s a book-length poem. I read poetry infrequently enough that the language that the authors uses is different enough, more emotional and less action-oriented, that it was refreshing.
- It’s got a lovely happy-for-now ending that leaves open a proper happy ending.
In Paris with You was a great Sunday afternoon read. Would recommend.
