Little Paris Bookshop
Little Paris Bookshop | Nina George
Monsieur Perdu can prescribe the perfect book for a broken heart. But can he fix his own? Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened. After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country s rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself. Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, "The Little Paris Bookshop" is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people's lives. "From the Hardcover edition.""

I very much enjoyed this book...but honestly would have really loved it if several of the intertwining plots had been instead untangled and allowed to each serve fully as a story on their own.

I really wanted to love this book but after countless times of picking it up and putting it down over the last few years, 20 chapters in, I am calling it. I just can‘t invest in the lost love angle they present. She left him to be in an open marriage! Had it been a book about the book barge, I would have loved it. 😂

I thought this book had a lot of really nice themes and heartwarming ideas. I am in the middle on this one because I feel like I have read a lot of books with similar ideas and this didn‘t really stand out to me among the others. I enjoyed the literary references and the setting, but wanted something more to push it over the edge it make it more interesting and memorable.

Princess-Kingofkings I completely agree! 3mo

Ohhh, the feeling of glee when the story I am currently audiobook-ing (The Library of Lost and Found) mentions the book (tagged) I am currently physically reading!!

Tagged is intriguing me because I‘m not nearly as interested in the story‘ as much as many of the beautifully written paragraphs.

Audiobook. Sweet story of lost love and sadness. I loved the male narrator with his french accent, it made it more authentic and emotional. A little rambling at times but I love books about books and booksellers. Nicely written.

Downloaded this book quickly this morning before taking the boys to the zoo. It has a lot of characters for me to keep track of which is hard in an audiobook. I love the idea that the owner sells books as if they are medicine for his customers.

I picked this out for #booked2019 “favorite place” back at the start of the year and it lingered on my tbr shelf. When I actually got into it it wasn‘t quite what I expected. I think you have to read books at the right time for them to resonate, and there were enough moments in here I loved that I‘m guessing this book would‘ve really spoken to me if I‘d picked it up when I was in a different place. As it was it seemed uneven, and fell a bit flat.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job on pushing through, although I‘d say the same if you‘d DNFd. I remember seeing mixed reviews for this when it came out. 7mo

Charming, surprisingly complex, quietly revolutionary. This book weaves love, grief, and an adoration for the written word that is both inspiring and heartbreaking. Wow, this slow burn of a book gutted me; it was not the light and sweet ode to books that I expected. Thankfully, it was so much more! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ oh, and my book rest? Yep, a dog booty 😂

From one angle, I'm shocked THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP has such a low Litsy rating. It's a love letter to books, presented with no genre snobbery whatsoever. It's a road trip book about dealing with grief and reshaping one's life. It often delighted me. It made me want to read a LOT.

From another angle, I'm not surprised at all. The book is European to the core, which might put certain North American readers off. It also takes an odd approach ⬇️

xicanti to gendered interactions, which put ME off a bit and sometimes lifted me out of the story. And the early sex scene is so cringeworthy I skipped on over it and so failed to recognize it wasn't ACTUALLY a sex scene until the characters involved came together again later.

On the whole, though, I enjoyed it very much. Y'all should give it a try. #caseyplusbooks

I keep doing this thing where I start a book, make some decent headway, decide I like it a lot, and barely even touch it the next day. Blah.

Today WAS kinda busy, though. The Truth and Reconciliation Committee's Final Report took up all my readerly energy at lunch, and I had supper with my aunt & uncle. (Casey's thrilled to have two new friends.) Now I'm gonna tuck up in bed and see how much of this I can read before I'm too tired to carry on.

“Reading - an endless journey; a long, indeed never-ending journey that made one more temperate as well as more loving and kind.” I loved this book, its quirky characters, and the setting. Now I want to go back to Paris!
