The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George is a story about Monsieur Perdu who finds books to heal the heart. However, he has trouble healing his own. Monsieur Perdu owns a bookshop called “The Literary Apothecary” that is on a barge that floats along the Seine in Paris.
This is a book for anyone who loves to read. It is full of literary illusions and references to many well known and not so well known books. At the end of this book there are recipes for different types of food and also a list of books to heal some of our own ailments, created by Monsieur Perdu himself.
At times this book can be a little slow but if you read through the entire thing you will be glad that you did. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves books.
