I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?
I loved it!
Bell Epoque was a solid read all the way through. The setting and characters were well done. I love reading about books set in Paris. The subject matter was interesting and unsettling to say the least. To be a foil for the rich. To be plain and unattractive in the company of rich pretty women to illuminate their attributes.
I will re-read and suggest this book to all who will listen and become interested.
