I m so disappointed in this book It sounded great the reviews seemed good and I love to read anything almost about ParisWhat went wrong It s an intriguing idea the closed apartment full of treasures the two story lines the parrallels and mysteries between the mother stories even the marriage angst It could have should have been a great readBut no It made me reflect on how some writers can find the exact correct word or phrase to make a story come alive how sometimes a sentence is written so well it almost hurts It s also painful when the opposite happens when the words and phrases are clunky unsuited forced The writing in this novel seems to be that of someone whose second and very new language is EnglishIt started early A character smirked constantly even though it didn t suit the personality the writer seemed to be trying to create Then other characters started to smirk and the word rapidly became a signature Characters thumped down stairs collapsed against building and used language salty and otherwise that just didn t suit them or the situation Dude BuddyAnd the last few pages so pat and trite they were unreadable Why did I Read it that is I ll never know

Well I m obviously in the minority here but the only reason I stayed with this book was the Paris setting I was intrigued by a story about an appraiser of furniture for an auction house and a mysterious Paris apartment but April Vogt did not appeal to me as a character at all I found her too self absorbed for my taste and her obsession with Marthe Florian seemed contrived The flashback sections provided by Marthe s journal entries held the same flatness for me I just couldn t work up the emotional involvement I would need to enjoy a book
