Product Description

Product Description

“Where did that second waiter sneak off to? There. He has rounded the corner and lit up a cigarette. Rough night. With one foot against the wall he takes a long drag. I wonder what kept him up all night? Insomnia? Tolstoy? No, a break up. That crazy Pauline with her possessiveness and drunk dialing."

This exhilarating fictional diary of a day in Paris combines laugh-out-loud journal entries with over 140 sumptuous photographs from Nichole Robertson - Amazon #1 bestselling author of PARIS IN COLOR.

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming new view of Paris April 29 2014
By AWellReadWoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Funny. Beautiful. Captivating. The Paris Journal is unlike anything I've ever read. This isn't a story for the person looking for the usual Paris. Or a broad tale of stereotypes and expected locales. Instead, this book takes the reader on a day-long journey that explores hidden gems within a section of the city often forgotten by tourists (Notre Dame excepting) seen through the eyes of an intelligent, soulful and humorous American. She eats, drinks, and creates imaginary lives for the locales around her. I couldn't stop reading from beginning to end. And more than anything, the poetic language and gorgeous, scene-setting photographs made me want to leap on the first plane to Paris to follow her journey step to step. I can't wait for the next installment to see where the next installment will take her.

By Sarah R. - Published on Amazon.com

I couldn't put down this down! The combination of gorgeous photos and vignettes work together brilliantly to create a seamless narrative arc over the course of a day in Paris. I highly recommend it for any lover of Paris or travel, or just anyone looking for a beautiful and fun afternoon or evening read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Savor the experience! June 20 2014
By Melinda Larson-Horne - Published on Amazon.com
As with an excellent wine or a decadent French pastry, The Paris Journal is a treat to be savored! Start with the wonderful matte cover and lovely, tactile paper (I really dislike fingerprints on glossy covers and images). Linger on each of Nichole's gorgeous photos for a truly unique Parisian perspective -- not a clichéd Eiffel Tower in site. Indulge in the imaginative musings of a jet-lagged American as she spends one day strolling along the Ile de Cité and the Ile Saint Louis, satisfying her cravings for French delicacies, and inventing quirky scenarios for the locals she keenly observes.

The French embrace indulgence while recognizing the necessity of moderation: just one small boule of really good ice cream, a generous slathering of salted butter on your baguette but only for breakfast, a warm croissant or pain au chocolate on a weekend morning, one lovely glass of Champagne or Bordeaux; but sometimes, it is far too tempting not to have just a little bit more. I had a hard time not devouring all of The Paris Journal in one sitting. I had to summon that French willpower to recognize that overindulgence diminishes the delightful anticipation of another opportunity to enjoy such pleasures. Happily, this is only the first book in The Paris Journal series. I look forward to continuing this narrative and photographic stroll through the city that will forever tempt me to return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post Paris Depression? May 14 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just returned from Paris? Longing for your return? Anticipating your visit? This is the book for you.
Not your standard guidebook but an excellent encapsulation of the essence of the incomparable city of light.
Take a day. Skip the lines. Slow down. Savor. Your soul will thank you.
I didn't take many pictures. I'm glad because these are the pictures I would have wanted.
Thank you Nichole and Evan for the memories. This book would be a bargain at triple the price.
