The amazing details to the real life in the Parisian streets and the theme of being exposed unwittingly to events that changed the world, kept me from putting the book down reading it into the late night . I highly recommend this book and any of Maura Stone's books . Literary genius from her own life .
Maura discovers so much more than culture shock when she’s on her own. This truly is a coming-of-age tell-all. I appreciate how honest and open she is about her personal experiences, particularly where her relationships are concerned. While so many of us often lock up the memories of our wild teenage years and hastily throw away the key, Maura shares her stories with wild abandon, immediately endearing you to the girl she was and to the woman she’s become. Nothing is taboo.
Her perspective from back in the day showcases the immature maturity Maura had while traveling abroad. I know that sounds a little strange, but I could sense the girl behind the stories, melding with the maturity she’s gained from her experiences. Growing up among plenty of situations that many of us would handle awkwardly and with kid gloves, all while away from her parents. I think that takes real guts. Maura has that in spades.
While I found myself annoyed with her main love interest at times, due to his personality, I do realize just how influential he must have been on her life. That’s even more in focus as the story progresses, blending beautifully with the ending. While many of us may never have Paris, we’ll certainly have those interesting childhood relationships that often shape who we later become in life, and they are often the ones we learn the most from.
Amour Anarchy certainly doesn't disappoint!
It's a personal memoir of her experience abroad in France in the 1970's. What a tale! Maura's ability to capture the reader in a way where he or she feels as if they are narrating the book themselves is stellar. I feel as though I can see every bead of sweat on the characters the way she describes the emotion of the moment and I appreciate that so much in a writer. I want to feel like a fly on the wall or the main character as I journey through the book. What a glimpse into a time period that was very controversial politically as well as socially. Maura candidly shares encounters that some may consider taboo with such an ease as well as her very honest personal growth journey of self discovery and silliness!
Maura isn't your typical run of the mill author - she is a true world artist, her work is truly underrated! Do yourself a favor and check out this book!
