      This story will stay with me for a long time. But the most discerning looks came from my perception. The book received high praise from reviewers and writers who are far more talented and astute than me. After we sat down at a table, peacocks entertained us by displaying their feathers like enormous Japanese fans. In Paris one could reach as high as the Eiffel Tower; I had no limitations, except for my own anger, which was ignited along with my passion the moment I set foot along the Champs-Elysees. This novel serves to remind us how such hubris and hatred almost destroyed our world.

      That summer, I was supposed to find a raison d'etre, a lover, or both, before I was to turn twenty-one. Extremes of behavior were accepted more readily than they were in the States. It already has great reviews! The French have always had a more permissive attitude than Americans. She is so lovely, tempered, proper, contained, and yet beguiling as well.

      The characters were well-developed, and the scenes were descriptive. Charlotte's visceral story will stay with me. Charlotte endures and her daughter ultimately thrives, but the compromises she has made shadow her new life in postwar New York, where she works in a publishing house presided over with wry irreverence by a man haunted by his own war history. But a book about a bookstore? In the animal kingdom, mating was simple. It would be particularly disappointing to not like the first book.

When I approached her, she was as hideous as any character described in a Voltaire novel: her face was marred by hairy moles and her bulbous nose was covered in gin blossoms.

I love it so much. She must have lived through two wars. At night, place de l'Horloge was illuminated in white and orange lights, and the square was teeming with painters, potters, jewelry designers, sculptors, street performers and fortune tellers.

And it was--mostly. I enjoyed reading about the character in German occupied France while being French. Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr. More often than not the premise is of a Jewish family or individual and I found it interesting to follow how the war affected others as well.

Plus, the city is constantly changing, even advice from six months ago can quickly become out of date. I was thoroughly drawn into a deep, rich, vivid world of engrossing characters and emotional and moral crises What is morality in wartime?

The swift, engrossing narrative conceals, in the best way, the fact that Feldman is also giving us a wise and troubling lesson about the great moral crisis of the last century.Ellen Feldman.
