    Story
    (43)

    In Paris for a weekend visit, Elizabeth Bard sat down to lunch with a handsome Frenchman - and never went home again. Was it love at first sight? Or was it the way her knife slid effortlessly through her pavé au poivre, the steak's pink juices puddling into the buttery pepper sauce? Lunch in Paris is a memoir about a young American woman caught up in two passionate love affairs - one with her new beau, Gwendal, the other with French cuisine.

    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Bard and/or Ann Marie Lee?

    This book is not terrible, along the same lines as Eat, Pray, Love, without the divorce drama. Not a lot happens (at least up to Chapter 8), but it is a sweet story, kind of like reading a chick flick. The problem I had was the narrator. It was like listening to a kindergarten teacher reading your journal to her class. I think I will read this the old fashioned way instead.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't make it to the end.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Marie Lee’s performances?

    Probably not.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil in the White City to be better than the print version?

    I don't think I would have enjoyed this story as much had I read the print version. Something about the subject matters makes the audio version so much more satisfying.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes
