Academians interested in the facts of France and Germany (with a little about Chanel) up to and during World War II.
I was very disappointed that there was so little about getting to know Chanel. I completed it only because it was a book club selection. Every one in the club had the same reaction: there was so much detailed information about specific people, but so little about the personal side of Chanel or the impact she made on fashion. We were bored. Additionally, the author created a very unlikable woman.
Hearing the different voices read the various characters was wonderful. i'm sorry my friends who would "rather read the book" missed out on the dialects and warmth of the voices.
