Unfortunately, after reading nearly 20% of this book, and struggling with definitions of words that don't even appear in our "free" dictionary, I had to stop reading this book. I rarely give up on a book, and getting in 20% does mean I had invested some reading time, but it just got to the point where I could read it no more due to the writing style. Some characters were juvenile in nature, and the "heroine" of our story was using her sexuality to achieve results, which aren't storylines I like to read. It made it seem as though she couldn't do something herself, and had to resort to tricks of her gender.
I was lucky to have gotten this book for free, and I see it's now selling for over $9. If you're a walking dictionary of all things French, by all means this is the book for you, but if you're not, don't waste your time. (My personal opinion only.)
