Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
Great description of so many "light" books. Every once in awhile I pick one up, thinking it'll be nice not to have to think so hard, then wishing I had been given something to think about! You'd think with a title involving France it would be better...
I haven't read the book, but the analogy says it all. :) Hope your next one is better.
Loved your brief review and the analogy,Les! I won't be buying the book.
Bellezza - The funny thing is I read Adler's Summer in Tuscany (see my review in the April archives) and thought it was quite good (for fluff). I think it was more entertaining than this one because it gave a better sense of place, making me dream of a trip to Tuscany, whereas this really didn't give a strong sense of Provence or its people.Joy & Lotus - thanks for the comments. Glad you enjoyed the review and analogy. :)
Darn, I'm pretty sure I have that one on my TBRs. I'll have to remember to save it for when I want a total no-brainer and look for Summer in Tuscany. :)
Hey, ya never know. It might be something you wind up enjoying, Nancy. But if you want my advice, skip this one and read Summer in Tuscany instead. Just my two cents.
