Insightful glimpse into the life of an expat.

If you enjoyed Le Marriage or Le Divorce, you will love Sarah Turnbull’s account of her experiences in Paris adjusting to life with the charming man she met in Belgrade. An Australian journalist, she found the differences in culture profound, but after some years and many faux pas she came to understand the nuances of French conversation and attitudes towards life. Now married, she lives happily in Paris, half French, with her husband and little dog, and is a contributing editor for Marie Claire magazine –- in French.

I loved this book. The author writes well, she's funny and self-deprecating, and she conveys an obvious love of life. It's a contagious emotion! I love her life, too, and have her second book on hold. I'm always more interested in non-fiction than fiction, particularly when the non-fiction reads like a really tremendous dose of fiction!

Wonderful, witty descriptions of the mysteries and pleasures of living in Paris. The author provides a lighthearted perspective on how to make friends, shop, commute, and own a dog the Parisian way as she simultaneously develops her relationship with her Parisian boyfriend. Some parts were so funny I read them aloud to family members.

OMG, I was so bored reading this that I gave up halfway through.
