    "Brilliant lessons!"

    Scott is a bit snobby but means well. The narrator was so dull but the story is captivating, highly recommend!

    "Interesting listen"
    What did you love best about Lessons from Madame Chic?

    I really liked the disucssion on cutting back consumerism and comparing French habits to American. It made me cut down my closet space a lot. Most of the stories she tells are interesting, but not all.

    "Ridiculously shallow & pretentious"

    I had zero clue what I was getting when I bought this. I used to live in France so French stories always appeal to me. However this was the most shallow and pretentious book I have ever in my life listened to. Although somewhat true, the manner of the delivery came across as the author putting herself on a pedestal and everyone else beneath her. It's nice to convey 'this is what happens in France' but to constantly put down other ways of doing things is classless.
    I also felt the narrator added to the already pretentious feel and made it worse.
    I am definitely a lady who believes in style and prefers the French way of doing things- but the way this was written and read actually made me sick to my stomach at times. Is the author a real live princess or French royalty? No. And furthermore this book makes her appear to be a shallow soul.
    This book is an embarrassment to the US citizens who do love France. Horrible

    "Great advice for a lovely way of life"

    The narrator read the book in a breathless, yet monotonous manner. Worth it, but still.

    "Almost fell asleep"

    For a book about living life with passion, I don't think the producers could've picked a more monotonous narrator.

    Loved the content.

    "Inspiration"

    This is THE book for the modern woman/girl! It totally beyond my expectations. The author passionately shows you how you can live an adventurous and spontaneous life, and how to find pleasure in even the most mundane things. Also includes genius beauty tips! :)

    I think she did great.
