I had a true love-hate relationship with this book. Every time I tried to read it, I had to force myself to open it.

I like my own Paris thank you.

Not my bag, but I can appreciate that it might be someone else's. Her distancing/reductive sentence structures worked for the piece, it just didn't tickle my fancy.
