I put off reading this book for a long time. I thought it was just another diet book. However, after reading a book where "French Women Don't Get Fat" was referenced I decided to give it a go. I ended up loving it. It's not a diet book, it talks about a way of life. A holistic way of living. I think it was filled with a lot of good advice and good recipes.
Well, Mireille of course!
How to actually say the french words.
This is non-fiction, so I don't know if moving is an accurate word to describe it. However, it did inspire me to eat leeks for the first time in my life (and as it turns out, I LOVE them!). I also started walking to work and drinking a lot more water.
Honestly, I loved this book, but I think it would be better to have a hard copy because of all the recipes in it. I listened to it first and then bought the hardcover.
Davina Porter was good. Diana Gabaldon, only in a desperate situation.
Not anything from the Outlander series.
Seriously? It was a romance book...what do you think?
I like a good romance book now and then, but at times this book got a little too graphic for me. The story line was okay, but I honestly don't understand why it gets such rave reviews.
I definitely think listening to this book as opposed to reading it adds a different dimension.
What immediately comes to mind is "Sense and Sensibility", both by Jane Austen. They are both a clear manifestation of the nineteenth century environment. Walks, parties, filagree and balls are the main focus of people’s lives.
When Mr. Darcy confesses his love for Elizabeth!
No, it wasn't riveting. But I enjoyed it just the same.
Absolutely. The story was haunting, the characters intoxicating - it begs to be read again and again.
All of it. Every moment was captivating. This is a book that I would just sit and listen to, because I had to know what was coming next.
I already answered this question above: YES!
An absolute must read.
