    The Paris Architect Kindle  The Paris PDF/EPUB or paris book, architect book, The Paris pdf, The Paris Architect EpubHow do I put this one into words for my review? It was gooooooood A goooood novel Not high literature but damn it all I enjoyed it a lot Exciting It starts with great historical details of life in Paris during WW2 then the excitement builds and builds and builds Parts are gruesome but the ending left a big smile on my face Yeah tons of funBut I have to tell you this the narration of the audiobok was t e r r i b l eby Mark Bramhall I mean his French and German dialects were laughable And you are not supposed to be laughing He cannot do women’s voices either I mean bad OK when he is just relating straight events not dialogs you can relax The thing is the terrible narration did NOT affect my appreciation of the book I make a huge effort to distinguish between the writing and the narration of a book Good book but lousy narration As usual I am rating the book not the narration when I give those stars There is humor There are historical details The book captures t

    The Paris Architect Kindle  The Paris PDF/EPUB or paris book, architect book, The Paris pdf, The Paris Architect EpubFrom the moment I saw the haunting cover of this novel I knew I had to read it The small Jewish girl hiding in plain sight says so much about the work of gifted architect Lucien Bernard the flawed protagonist of Charles Belfoure’s THE PARIS ARCHITECTLucian is fairly despicable at the start of the novel He no longer loves his wife he has a mistress and he does not care about the Jews being plagued by the Nazis in occupied France He only cares about surviving by making

    The Paris Architect Kindle  The Paris PDF/EPUB or paris book, architect book, The Paris pdf, The Paris Architect EpubI really struggled with how to rate this bookOn the one hand I've read a ton of WW2 fiction and I loved how this presented a different perspective The story was engaging and suspenseful and in some passages so realistic that I felt sick to my stomachOn the other hand I really struggled with the narrative voice Something about it just kept popping me out of the story I also felt like Lucien's changes of heart and growth were not well explained not so much growth as just a sudden unexplained change of mind And I will not spoil the ending but
