Have you ever had a book that emotionally was exactly what you needed? For most book lovers, I think we can relate to this. In The Little Paris Bookshop, we are greeted by Perdu who owns a bookshop and has that special skill. For anyone who comes in, he can pick the book that helps them the most. Problem is he is not able to do that in order to 'cure' himself.
In this book, we are greeted by a scene that is beautiful. For those of us who have been lucky to see the Seine and Paris in person, I was instantly taken back there. I love that the setting happens in Bookstore and that it is a place that means so much to Perdu.
The characters in the book are vivid and I can easily picture them. Especially those that Perdu meets along the way. They have unique personalities and are full of life. I think that it would be wonderful to see this made into a movie.
However for me the best part of this book was the quotes. I love the feeling that books are magic and that they can take you places. I love that you can find solace in a book, that you can what you need to make you feel okay about life again. This book and author reconfirmed for me that books have the power to do that.
For those of you who enjoy books that remind you of the wonder that got you into reading in the first place, I think this is the book for you.
