    I loved this book.. the French perspective during world war two was interesting and an easy read. I could not put this book down for long.

    The Paris Architect

    A good history of the German occupation in France, specifically in Paris. I enjoy reading fiction about WW11 and enjoyed this writer's. I was surprised by many things: that a spouse would actually leave his partner because he or she was Jewish; that it appeared the French already disliked the Jews before the occupation although they had been friends and co-workers; that just by looking at a Jew, you knew they were Jewish. I really enjoyed how Lucien evolved to who he became.

    The Paris Archetect

    The subject matter regarding the treatment and concealing of Parisian Jews was very interesting and compelling. I found myself wanting to get back to reading but I found the conversational prose a bit stilted and perhaps some of the occurences too pat. But I would highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a heartwarming read.

    Knowledge and wisdom

    You have to be a lover of history to appreciate the setting of the place and the story told by the author. The character development is good and the story ends on a positive note. We gave Lucien with great architecture knowledge but lacking wisdom. But his hard learned experiences start to give him the wisdom he needs to make the right choices.
