    Internationally best-selling author Edward Rutherfurd has enchanted millions of readers with his sweeping, multigenerational dramas that illuminate the great achievements and travails throughout history. In this breathtaking saga of love, war, art, and intrigue, Rutherfurd has set his sights on the most magnificent city in the world: Paris. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalties, passion, and long-kept secrets of characters both fictional and real, all set against the backdrop of the glorious city.

    Kathi says: "Rutherfurd's "Paris"--C'est très bien!"
    "Plot jumps around too much to follow on an audiobo"

    What would have made Paris better?

    I just don't believe this plot format works for an audiobook. The author jumps back and forth between characters and time periods. I had a difficult time remember each story thread, and to be honest it became a chore to try to follow. I finally just gave up.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I think reading it in print would have made all the difference.
