The Paris Apartment

Finally, a book with short chapters!  Not sure about you, but I actually love when I find a book with short chapters.  Short chapters allow for easy stops; easy stops provide flexibility in busy days.  Chapters that have pages and pages, you feel compelled to finish the chapter before you put the book down, else, will you remember exactly where you stopped.  And who likes putting a book down for the night in the middle of a chapter—not a good stopping point.

Short chapters aside, the book captured my attention from the beginning with it switching from one character to the next, but as I continued to read it, well, the story started wearing itself out. I found it funny that the main character, a 28-year-old woman who worked in bars in London was not as street-smart as I thought she would be; another character referred her as being reckless, but that description just didn’t sit right with me. I’m in the suburbs in the US and know better than some of her decisions. I think that is what lost me; I couldn’t relate to why she did the things she did. And the ending, although there was a surprise in it, it was meh. What was nice, though, is there were a few surprises sprinkled throughout the book.

Jess comes to Paris to stay with her step-brother and he is missing when she arrives. She stays in his Paris apartment, meeting the other neighbors and searches for her brother. I rated it a 3 out of 5 on GoodReads.
