review ☆ April in Paris 105 Iful daughter Chantal The two begin to meet and fall in love before Roth has the courage to reveal his true identity or the time to discover that Chantal is part of the Resistance Written in an elegant and arresting style April in Paris is an engrossing novel from a promising new talent. Certainly there have been a vast number of books on this subject both fiction and nonfiction Honestly because it is a heart breaking subject I have often avoided novels of this type My interest was piued in this case because April In Paris is written from a German point of view sympathetic to the Resistance It perhaps long overdue for the world to reexamine the events of WWII in light of the fact that every German soldier was not a devout Nazi Still books and films that take this approach remain for me at least difficult to access I seem to feel however irrationally that they are untrustworthy as if they are somehow alive and could turn on me And I dread trying explain to anyone how I m reading a book about how Nazi soldiers weren t really so bad after allI think it is an interesting and somewhat troubling cultural fact that someone like me born 30 years after the end of WWII could still feel so conflicted over a book like April In Paris Perhaps the real value of this book is that by reading it I have discovered something about myself as well as something about the world Digital Minimalism Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World years after the end of WWII could still feel so conflicted over a book like April In Paris Perhaps the real value of this book is that by reading it I have discovered something about myself as well as something about the world

review ☆ April in Paris 105 Ogation of Resistance fighters But while off duty he slips away from his fellow officers changes into civilian clothes and wanders aimlessly through Paris disguised as his alter ego Antoine One day he is drawn into an antiuarian bookshop and becomes enchanted with the bookseller's beaut. Not very challenging or thought provoking but entertaining Entertaining in an improbable made for Hollywood lovewar story kind of way without the cheesy ending Think Pearl Harbor with Ben Affleck The writing was slightly confusing and there was one short chapter I can t remember which that seemed disjointed The protagonist is described vaguely and just didn t seem fleshed out for lack of a better term I also had a problem with the idea that his French resistance love interest Chantel showed absolutely no interest in him a known enemyNazi pig and then bang Her clothes are off and she s on top of him WTF No love story here but something out of porn a topia instead and the name Chantel didn t help either
