The Little Paris Bookshop Review


The Little Paris Bookshop is a charming novel by Nina George, so charming in fact that I have put together a little review for you. 

If you want to read the book, you can buy it here.

Firstly, this book is enjoyable for most people, it is a book for the masses.  However, this means that it's not particularly high brow or hard to digest but it is very enjoyable.  

Secondly, this book is very quaint and for some people it will be be too twee and overly French-ified.  George plays on the current Franco-philia which has been going on for the last couple of years.  Some people will think it is too much but I think it is done quite well and I'm sucker for the French stuff!  

The idea of a literary apothecary is such an endearing idea, I find it really appealing however I actually wish it went a little further and embraced it slightly more and expanded on the healing properties of the book choices.  Although I recognise that would have taken the book in a different direction when this book was all about the characters. 

One character in particularly - Jean Perdu - was the main show.  I liked the character arcs and found them generally rewarding, although I found it difficult to engage with Jean Perdu completely.  

I've filmed a full review on my YouTube channel, check it out!
