Description du produit
Revue de presse
“A fresh take on WWII France that will appeal to bibliophiles everywhere. I fell in love with Odile and Lily, with their struggles and triumphs, from the very first page. Meticulously researched, The Paris Library is an irresistible, compelling read.” -- Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Chelsea Girls
“The Paris Library is a refreshing novel that celebrates libraries as cradles of community, especially when we need them the most. It shows how literature can be a means of escape, a catalyst for human connection, and a moral center in grim times. A thoroughly enjoyable read, kind-hearted and brimming with delightful bookish allusions.” -- Matthew Sullivan, author of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore
"Having lived in an apartment just above the current location of the American Library in Paris, I've always felt connected to the institution and wondered about its story, so I'm grateful to Janet Skeslien Charles for penning such a vivid, enjoyable, based-on-a-true-story tale. In THE PARIS LIBRARY, the beloved library, its staff, and its subscribers come to life and remind us of both the horrors of World War II and the vital role books play in keeping us afloat in difficult times. Well-researched, stirring, and rich with detail, THE PARIS LIBRARY is an ode to the importance of libraries, books, and the human connections we find within both." -- Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names
"Intelligent and sensuously rich....A novel tailor-made for those who cherish books and libraries." ― Kirkus Reviews
"A love letter to Paris, the power of books, and the beauty of intergenerational friendship." ― Booklist
"Delightful...richly detailed...Historical fiction fans will be drawn to the realistic narrative and the bond of friendship forged between a widow and a lonely young girl." ― Publishers Weekly --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

The dual timeline was irritating, I was not moved and it did not grab my attention.
Could have been so much better!
I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read and I found the parallels between the central characters in Paris and their later counterparts in the US fascinating. I thought the the two timelines were very cleverly woven together. I loved the attention to historic detail and found the day-to-day work of the library a comforting distraction from the intense and constantly shifting tension created throughout because of the occupation and the increasing menace of Nazism.
A great book and I will be reading more of this author's work.
It's so important that I read this book. I will not put ìn any spoilers but I will say I totally was whisked back to Paris during the 2nd WW.
I felt what the poor Jewish Canadian American British and Parisians had felt.
All for the love of books. I picture myself as being a librarian and helping the subscribers still to get thier reading fix. Because to some people including myself book reading is something that we could not live without doing. I admire the true grit of these strong people.
This book has taught me so many life lessons.
I give praise to the author for her style of writing . The life pattern that young Lily was on and the mistakes she would make or want to make or emotions she was feeling, were the same emotions or mistakes or lessons that Odilehad already experienced and therefore was able to guild her .
These lessons will forever stick with me now.
Had the book just told the story of the library staff and Odile in wartime Paris and Lily and Odile in America rather than padding it out with Lilli’s family and friends I would have enjoyed the book more.
