    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.

    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.
