    ?Books keep stupidity at bay. And vain hopes. And vain men. They undress you with love, strength and knowledge. It?s love from within.? People read for lots of different reasons. They want to be entertained. They want a book to explain what is wrong with them or a confirmation...

    Merde. I think this is one of those books that is going to bring angry comments from readers who liked it a lot more than I did. This novel just did not work for me. I thought it was disgustingly sweet, poorly plotted, filled with cliches and bad dialogue, and I could not finish it...

    Absolutely perfect premise and storyline - I was hooked by that blurb. Unfortunately this book was not at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for a Parisian Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore but with a twist - an eccentric old gentleman selling books as medicine to those who are mis...

    Sadly I didn't love this one like I was expecting. I loved the bookishness - from the Literary Apothecary to Perdu's ability - and the setting, plus there were some great quotes. However I struggled with the story and I lacked a connection to the characters. In theory, this book is per...

    I have just finished this book and am astonished at the 5 star reviews; it seems I was reading a different book from the majority of reviewers. I had such high hopes for this. I had just finished reading a very dark and disturbing thriller and needed a lovely book to make me feel w...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley There is an independent bookstore in Philadelphia called Joseph Fox. It is smallish ? one floor, a big first room, a passage, a back room, and a smaller backer room where the children?s books are kept. Every conceivable space is packed with books. ...

    The reviews are so misleading. What a disappointment! Only one person in our book club liked it. The rest of us just plowed through, hoping it would be over. It was certainly not my cup of tea. The story could have been told in 50 pages, and the rest of the story was just meandering em...

    Bittersweet Gallic Romance This is a very French book. Kind of mournful, but also hopeful. Very, very emotional. This is ironic, as the author, Nina George, is actually German, although she now lives in France (which doesn't surprise me, as her soul is French). And yes, ...
