    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFThe writer tries too hard to give every detail of what she has experienced and at times gets repetitive The editor for this book should have done a better job and saved readers' time While I did enjoy the background history of many

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFWhile the history of France is interesting I don't think Ina Caro can take credit for that She can take credit for being repetitive and rather elitist however though she does render some stories very compellingly

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFI wanted so badly to like this book I love history I love France and I'm going to Paris this seemed like the perfect book for me Unfortunately for my reading tastes it was just too dry I fought through the book but the constant elitist snobbery and un likability of the narrator made it very tough I stomached the antic dotes where Ina can't imagine a life without white asparagus from France or when she faced hell in the form of tourists at Versailles but just barely The awkward injection of Bob stories Ina's husband was also another major dislike for meI did give the book 2 stars however as opposed to just one because through all the negatives I found with this book the narrator's passion and love of France is undeniable Her enthusiasm is genuine for a country who's history

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFI am not the biggest fan of non fiction but every once in a while I come across a book that I have to try Being a huge enthusiast of travel by train a friend thought this would be my kind of book and she proved to be right Ina Caro takes you on a journey from the 12th century to the 19th century without ever leaving the comfort of her rented Paris apartment It is pretty obvious that the author loves France she gushes about the food the tour guides the buildings the history and especially her favorite emperor Napoleon III I wasn’t interested in her restaurant suggestions but that is because no matter where I travel I stick to McDonald’s much to the disgust of my friends and family I really hate going on tours the rest of the group and the forced stop and go put me off so those suggestions are also not

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFIt was okay The concept was great Day trips from paris to the different cities cathedrals and castles of France in chronological orderUnfortunately the writing was not very good and the editing was worse You could almost see where the author left off writing for a break and then returned as she picked up and repeated the previous information In the hands of a talented writer this book would have been 4 stars

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFAs far as a book about traveling through France and learning about French history on the way bravo We explore many eras of French history via stories and landmarks and the book also serves as a guidebook for any real trip you'd like to take all of the stops here are train trips that are easy to organize from a central location of ParisI had to rate it down a star because about 13 of the way through the book I found myself disliking our tour guide Ina Caro She's kind of a complainer and hearing her whine about crowds and waiting in line irked me like it's famou

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFThis book combined three things I love France trains and history And now I want to go and recreate the trip for myself Much appreciated is the way she seamlessly weaves the back story into the locations she visits; of little relevance now although might have been when the book was released which restaurants they ate atAnd it led me to purchase her first book

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFVery enjoyable mix of travelogue and a series of train trips through the archeological and artistic history of France as well as its history of kings religions politics and wars Many of the historical vignettes were just fascinating

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFuite interesting at times but repetitive to be sure If you are a lover of architecture from this period or french history though it's a must read Be sure to read with the internet close at hand so you can look up photos of allllll the places

    Paris to the Past eBook ☆ Paris to ePUB Ü Û Kindle optionsaveurs.pro paris pdf, past ebok, Paris to kindle, Paris to the Past PDFNot a guidebook to take with you Read before you go or read when you're at home wishing you were in France A good starter for ideas for day trips A light pre readAn editor could have made the author's voice consistent either an approachable history lecture tone or an intimatepersonal story tone Either be a docent or be a bubbly Sister Wendy The book alternates tone as if the author keeps interrupting herself I read snippets here and there not the whole book or even half so I didn't pick up on any elitism I just think the author's so genuinely enthusiastic that when she goes to Paris she almost does expect to meet up with Henry IV She also doesn't like to dwell on incidents like the St Bartholomew's Massacre incidents that aren't nice dinner conversation A few photos would have been nice too Here's one thing this author did that I haven't seen before she describes the insides of landmark buildings in Paris that are open to the public only a few days a
