Reviews of Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Charming, thoughtful book

by Neil on Oct 13, 2011

Though a couple of chapters are slightly mystifying, Robb selects intersections in Paris where intriquing events in the past happened, matches the style of each chapter to its subject, and leads the reader on the most informed fascinating tour of Paris imaginable. I have French inlaws, and would even give them this book. It is splendid on all levels---a good read, important scholarship, unheard-of byways, shrewd analysis, and mysteries that make you finish each chapter without putting the book down.
