Not sure what I was expecting with this book but whatever it was I didn't get it. This isn't really a book or memoir at all, rather, this is a copy and paste from her facebook blog over a year of living in Paris. For a Shakespeare professor I was expecting some sort of grand adventure.
Not that at all unless you are moved to tears over the butcher giving the lady extra sausages at discount because he is infatuated with her.
Not sure why I am giving it a 2 star as this one is one of the least return on investments that I have had the misfortune of stumbling into. Some of the scenes are humorous I suppose. It is overwritten but that is what you get whenever you read a professor's writing.
When I say overwritten I imply using wording and phrases that you would never find in the real world only in some girl's fantasyland.
