Myself, I have no credentials, but loved the book. I bought it on my Kindle ... by accident, hitting the wrong title. I wish all my mistakes turned out this well.
The creativity, fluidity, humor and unique writing style make this a first-rate read. The characters are live and real, pulling few punches. You may not like this if you are dealing with some of the real character issues or have a history you are trying to forget. For myself, I found the "realness" of characters added a welcome balance to many other books I have read where the characters' problems lag with superficiality. This being said, I found most of the characters fun and intriguing.
This leaves me with a question: When is Corine Gantz publishing her next?
"Hidden in Paris" is a very good first novel.
This fizzy novel of romance and reinvention reads swiftly and easily and compulsively. There is passion, there is pathos, I think there is also some foie gras in there too.
The character of Annie keeps you guessing, the characters of Lola and Althea keep you grounded. The male characters are sympathetically and persuasively written, a nice contrast to the "Men Behaving Badly" state of our current world affairs.
The end result is the happy reminder that Paris, C'est La Fete! I mean, that Paris is a deliciously dizzy party. Yes, you could reinvent yourself elsewhere, but why bother when you have Paris?!
I spent two afternoons reading this book and got off the sofa feeling like an entirely new person! Guess it worked! Milles mercis Mme. Gantz!
My favorite character, without a doubt, was Lucas. The words Corine gave him made me laugh out loud.
As with all books,I read it with an eye to how the novel was created, imagining the work and how it was done. What a feat to have written and self-published such an engaging and fun read. I'm jealous of the completion of it!
I should tell you that I was lucky enough to win a copy of Hidden in Paris. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't liked it (probably been super quiet and pretended like I hadn't had a chance to read it yet) but I can tell you that it is great fun, well-written and the perfect summer poolside or beach read. Read it and enjoy.
