Ebook í Weekend in Paris ê Robyn Sisman

Lestoned streets of Paris Molly is swept up in an adventure that defies her imagination From infiltrating a conference in a Cleopatra wig to sharing her deepest secret with a complete stranger Molly's weekend away from her troubles turns into a dizzying voyage of passion and self discovery transforming her absolute I'd give it 25 stars if I could but I couldn't really bring myself to 3 I knew I was going to have issues with this book when the main character thought 30 was old she's 21 not 14 Even when I was 21 I didn't think 40 was old Her lack of maturity made me not really like her all that much I know she gets really angry when people call her stupid and goes on and on how she's not it's not that she's stupid she's just naive and immature I had to roll my eyes when the story took a classic and unrealistic turn that she meets up with overly friendly people who help transform her from a mousy British moppet to some supermodel status yeah right and through them she has the weekend of her life unlikely She meets this gorgeous artist who's name I can never remember and has an affair with him and then is upset to find out he has a girlfriend What did she expect to happen? Dis she expect a 2 day fling to profess his undying love which ironically he does and she move in with him? Honestly I was interested in his father even when I was her age I would beIt's not a horrible book but I'd put this under fantasy since that's how it all seemed to be to me I was half expecting to find out at the end that it was all a dream or a story she was writing on what she wished would happen to her meeting her dad love interest makeover new bffs of course a new flashy job to boot I think the thing that bothered me most about this book is it just ends with her getting on the train and no epilogue to wrap things up Does her mother marry Armand? Does whatshisname finally get a job to show her he's serious about her? Does she get a job and get a real relationship with her father? Who knows I'm not sure if there's a second book but really I just wanted a summery

Weekend in ParisParis She's ecstatic until she discovers that Malcolm's idea of business isn't exactly the same as hers Horrified Molly storms out of the office With nothing else to lose she impulsively boards a train to Paris intent on treating herself to a long weekend in the City of LightWithin moments of stepping onto the cobb I never write reviews but after reading this book I feel so annoyed and disappointed that I feel compelled toI was initially on board with the premise a young woman a bit naive and sheltered uits her degrading job and runs off to Paris for a bit of well deserved adventure But as I read on I felt increasingly confused as to why certain characters subplots and other choices ever made the final edit I'm not sure how best to organize my thoughts so I'll just list them out as they come to me1 What exactly was the plot? What was the point? First we're led to believe it's about Molly Malcolm and the Missing Disc but that gets solved about half way through Then it seems it might be about her relationship with Fabrice and learning about love but that doesn't uite work out either Her relationship with her father was peripheral and unimportant until about halfway through so it's hard to say that that was the main point of the story It was really just a slapdash series of random appointments with no clear inciting incident or resolution This kind of seuential narrative might be palatable if the main character learns something about the world or themselves over the course of their adventures but that never really happened so it all seems a bit pointless2 Some things were a little too convenient She meets a girl named Alicia who suddenly and without reason is willing to act as her best friend shower her with fabulous clothes and do massive favors Then she runs into her long lost father a wonderfully kind family man who just so happens to work in the medical field and was invited to her former employer's event in Paris Fabrice's father Armand is a stand in therapist for Molly and has a perfect job offer for her in London Her mother just shows up in FranceokayAll stories need a couple coincidences sure but it was too much for my taste3 Malcolm's chapters seemed really pointless If he was significant enough to have several chapters told from his point of view I would assume that eventually he and Molly would again cross paths be forced to come to some kind of reconciliation develop a hate to love relationship SOMETHING But those chapters basically served no purpose because after the handcuff incident he doesn't show up again The author certainly missed an opportunity for a confrontation between Molly and Malcolm4 The praise on the front cover compared the main character to Elle Woods and Bridget Jones which was such an insult Elle Woods is initially considered vapid by those around her but with hard work and determination is able to prove to everyone and herself that she is strong capable intelligent and worthy and still maintains her bounce and sparkle throughout her trials and tribulations Bridget Jones is a complete mess of course but that's what makes her easy to relate to She reflects on her screw ups admits her flaws and stands up for herself charming and witty all the while Molly on the other hand was frustratingly naive self righteous unfunny and experienced almost no growth I understand that maybe she as well as Malcolm were purposely written in such a way as to seem ridiculous to the reader like Bridget or Rebecca Bloomwood from the Shopaholic series but it's only funny if the characters are eventually faced with the truthconseuences of their actions and learn something otherwise they continue to be ridiculous That kind of realization seemed to barely happen for Molly not at all for Malcolm4 We get it Molly is an English major She likes literature This was one of the points that contributed to Molly seeming ridiculous constantly uoting famous works to herself and others It would have been nice if she had come to realize something anything meaningful about higher education her favorite author her beliefs etc Instead she's a pretentious know it all to the end5 Molly came off as very shallow due to her relationship with Fabrice He was a liar a thief an adulterer spoiled and out of touch but Molly was willing to look past all of that because he was a gorgeous French artist When he openly acts ashamed of her in front of friends and dumps her at the cafe she just takes it Another missed opportunity for an important confrontation At the last second Fabrice inexplicably changes his mind and tries to win her back In the end she does turn down his invitation to stay longer in Paris but only barely and she does so grudgingly and reminisces about him while on the train home all undercutting her statement that she's worth Doesn't really seem like she believed herself on that one6 Molly's relationship to her mother was a bit baffling She spends a lot of time making it clear that her mother is a bit odd but lovable Then she guiltily recounts two instances where she Molly purposefully hurt her mother because well she can She feels guilty for her actions because she knows that all her mother has ever done is love and support her However when we finally meet her mother she is describes as being selfish air headed embarrassing and we're supposed to somehow feel sorry for self absorbed mopey Molly? After the revelation about her father and how her mother didn't want him involved I can understand feeling sorry for Molly in that situation but again that conflict never came to a head no confrontation between Molly and her mother about her birth father no heartfelt acknowledgement that they both must learn to be independent from each other after being just Molly and Mom for 21 years7 The writing was cheesy and lazy in some parts Cheesy example something hardly funny would happen and Molly and Alicia would be slapping their thighs gasping for breath crying from laughing Lazy a chapter would end and the next would begin skipping over some events that it seemed the author just couldn't be bothered to describe or would just summarize in a single sentence which left me feeling disoriented and wondering why perfectly relevant bits kept being left out or lazily summarizedI'm sure there's I could add but I just can't exhaust any of my energy thinking about this unsatisfying book Obviously I did not enjoy this reading experience and look forward to removing this book from my collection
