Reviews - What do customers think about La Place (Folio Series, No 1722)?

How to say much with so little  Jul 1, 2000
This book spoke to me! I am a dual national, French through my mother, and I lived many of my childhood years in France and have many French relatives and friends. I read this little book with so much interest. I actually sobbed at the ending of this memoir. It is magnificent in its sparseness and ability to reach the universal in those few and well chosen family anecdotes. The struggle of societal hierarchies has rarely been so lovingly described.
somewhat interesting although lacking in content  Oct 4, 1999
This book provides a detailed insight into the author's feelings towards various topics but mainly betrayal and guilt. It however lacks in any real content and at times seems to be recounting what has previously been told.
expresses the differences of the class system in france well  Mar 12, 1999
The stopping and starting of the book in different places can be a bit confusing especially for a person who is not fluent in french. However the class systems are represented well and one begins to feel what it must have been like for the lower class people struggling to imporve themselves. In places the book can be a bit boring yet on the whole it is very interesting to read and provides a good insight.
I liked this book  Oct 29, 1998
I thought the abrupt starting/stopping in describing different parts of her life were used excellently. The reason the book did not get five stars was simply the content. The emotion was there, the writing style was great, but I just thought the subject matter was rather boring.
