2017 10. The Little Paris Bookshop

By Nina George, Translated by Simon Pare

This is a sad book.  It is a good book, I think, but it is very sad.  I don’t know who would want to read such a sad book.  I think, perhaps, someone who had been through a similar situation might find it comforting, but I don’t know that anyone else would.  It wasn’t a waste of my time, but I would have been fine, had I never read it.

I have a feeling something was lost in the translation from French.  I may be wrong, but parts of it just seem a little too odd.
