    1. Hope on said:

      I have never looked up so many words in a book, even in a dozen books! So thankful for Nook's look-up function, I even looked up some just to make sure I understood their use. I guess that's what happens when you read a book about a Paris concierge who is a closet intellectual and an almost-teenager who is hiding her brilliance. A wonderful coming-of-age book about a 54-year old who learns to accept herself. Well worth the time to look up all those words!

    2. Lauren on said:

      I found the first third of the book work to read. After that I was invested and enjoyed it.

    3. Powerock on said:

      Saw the film first and loved it which did not diminish at all the pleasure of the read. Great language, humor, perceptions.

    4. Cathi on said:

      One of the best books I have read in the past 12 months. Both thought provoking and amusing.

    5. Peter on said:

      Don't choose a book with an interesting cover and title - and expect the same inside
