  • 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 Architect

    I was just born in 1942 when Lucien Bernard began his rise as an architect in occupied Paris. Growing up the war was still much on people's minds. My father was an RCAF pilot fighting alongside the RAF. He never spoke about his war experiences. Belfoure's story brought to life the horror, the terrible fear, the wretchedness of what war does to human beings, on both sides. The book was so fascinating and gut- wrenching I could not put it down and read it in one sitting. Every once in awhile a book comes along that grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go until the last word is read. This is one of those books.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An exciting well written book

    In his author's comments Belfoure uses an architectural analogy to describe the structure of his book. It's layered structure provided a solid plot and well developed characters with emotional depth and reaction to the unfolding events. Details and historical facts are included with a delicacy that pulls you visually into the scene. The characters are a cross section of a society under the stress of war and foreign domination. The beauty of his character development is in the relief that none become caricatures of good or bad. It is about choices and the character of a person who makes the hard and wise choices as well as those that are unable to find the character necessary to make the harder choices. It left me wondering "what I and my family would do in a similar circumstance?"

    Thanks for your feedback!
