    Love never dies

    Most insightful and profound treatment of a very difficult subject; What happens to love when one of the lovers dies? Beautifully written with artistic description of the settings and very sensitive handling of happiness and sorrow. Loved it totally!

    The Little Paris Bookshop

    “The Little Paris Bookshop,” by Nina George, was a wonderful, rich story. Although the book deals with the grief of lost love, it is also about the discovery of coming to terms with that grief, about friendship, about the importance of loving others, and the joy of living while we are given the animus of life. There were some drawbacks in the story. Two of the main characters have been grieving for at least twenty years, and, in my mind, that’s overkill. Yes, we grieve, and we always remember those for whom we grieve, but, for the vast majority of us, that grief gradually turns to loving memories. As well, the remembered love that Jean has for Manon is somehow a sexual love alone, and that brings to mind Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” where the priest admonishes that “when two tapers kiss, do thus consume,” so, perhaps, the message is that sexual love, while violent, ultimately leads to loss. For me, the book was more about discovery than it was about loss, and about wholeness of spirit that is discovered by knowledge of self and enhanced through relationships with others.

    True escapism.

    I loved ths book. I partcularly enjoyed the references to other books I've read and the description of the small french villages along the canal. Would love to go to France and follow the same route.

    The little paris bookshop

    It was a heartwarming book. It was a history and geography lesson on paris. It was sad in some respects, but in others it was somewhat boring. To be honest, it was not what i expected. It didnt grab me at all.
