A Novel Bookstore (2009)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Francesca och Ivan öppnar en bokhandel i Paris där bara "bra" romaner säljs. Lanseringen är succéartad, fortsättningen desto mer problemfylld. Kritiker attackerar bokhandeln och den hemliga kommitté som väljer utbudet spåras upp och angrips. Jag hade (mycket) höga förväntningar o...
Bitter Almonds (2013)

review 1: 'Liked this more than "A Novel Bookstore" by the same author, but this was such a sad, sad story about an older woman who never learned to read and how her Paris employer gallantly takes on the challenge. 'Don't want to give away too much but this is one of those tasks that typi...
L'incidente (2011)

English

review 1: This title didn't begin auspiciously for me. It was slow going and I found the protagonist to be a whiner, most annoyingly so. But because I liked another of Cosse's books, A Novel Bookstore, I stuck with it and am glad I did. About a third of the way through this rather short no...
La libreria del buon romanzo (2009)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The idea of this book and indeed the premise of the "novel" bookstore, or in this case "The Good Bookstore" was so appealing to me. A book for book lovers and a store that carried ONLY the finest in literature as opposed to what is best selling and appeals to popular culture. Alt...
Drömbokhandeln (2009)
language
English

review 1: This title was strongly suggested to me by a seasoned bookseller at Barnes & Noble. It was worth the time to read and enjoy. The story is based on the premise that there are only so many good novels. A select panel of intellectuals decide what books to add to a secret list of nov...
Au Bon Roman (2009)
language
English

review 1: I began reading this with interest, since I generally love literary mysteries. Unfortunately, the disjointed plot and endless recitation of book titles took any suspense out of the mystery. I finished reading it, but in the end it had the same effect on me as many French movies...
La Buena Novela (2009)
language
English

review 1: I love this book's description of the ideal bookstore so terribly much. It is just the kind of thing I like to dream up and salivate over. And the lists of other books to read are quite overwhelming. I kept a pen and paper handy all through it to note them down and I fear I may ...
Der Zauber der ersten Seite (2000)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Wonderful, literate story about literature-loving people who open a bookstore in Paris that sells only good literature, as defined by a select committee of authors and the owners of the bookstore. Characters are well-rounded with still enough mystery about them to keep you intere...
