The satire in the book killed me.
If you didn’t get the humour i pity you

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Maybe but only out of a sort of incredulous 'can you believe what this book is saying?!' sort of way. I was sorely disappointed and it wasn't really what I was expecting. I surprisingly found this book to be kind of backwards and sexist. I find it hard to believe that Parisian women are really as rude and try-hard as this book makes them out to be.
'Don't wear lipstick on a date because you want your date to think you think you're a natural beauty but always wear lipstick to the grocery store in case you see someone you know'
There's even a chapter on how to convince your boyfriend that you are having an affair when you're not. I know that most of this book was probably (hopefully?) meant to be tongue in cheek but if I hadn't listened to this on my commute anyway, it would have felt more like a waste of my life.
It just sounds like a weird modern version of one of those 1950s 'How to be a perfect wife and mother' type books.
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?
It was fine, it felt natural, I can't say there was anything special about it.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Probably out of morbid curiosity.
Any additional comments?
A bad, non-fiction version of 'Sex and the City' in Paris but without the story.

I love love love French accent in this performance.I enjoyed the narration by Carrington MacDuffie so much.
Although the content of this book is not good enough to literally READ. When I read the sample of kindle, I didn't find it fascinating. The content of this book is just perfect to perform in the audio way.
