Edward Rutherfurd’s novel, simply named Paris, is in the genre of historical fiction and as such it is engrossing and gives an intimate view of the sweep of Paris history from Roman times up to the post World War II era of Charles de Gaulle. In truth, most locals consider Paris in the fall the "real" new year: a time when the city is again abuzz following a summer lull, humming with new exhibits, projects, and ideas.

On the other hand, it can be less attractive for those hoping to spend lots of time outdoors or to experience the iconic backdrop of Paris in full bloom. The Fall is an ambitious debut novel that delivers some memorable moments, but for the most part feels ungainly, as the characters are often used instrumentally by McGowen.

The story is centred on a chaotic moment in which the lives of two girls in their mid-twenties - who appear pretty dissimilar at first - collide with mutual tragedy/5(81). From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Paris started mobilizing for war in Septemberwhen Nazi Germany attacked Poland, but the war seemed far away untilwhen the Germans attacked France and quickly defeated the French army.

The French government departed Paris on J and the Germans occupied the city on June Genre/Form: Fiction History Historical fiction War stories: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Hamilton, Tamsin.

‎The collapse of France in had an overwhelming impact – on Paris, on France and on the rest of the world. People everywhere saw Paris as the centre of Europe and the hub of culture, fashion and invention. Suddenly France, not least to the disbelief of her own citizens, was gripped in the vice of.

In Paris By the Book the marvelously gifted Liam Callanan tells a spellbinding story of reading and writing, romance and marriage, French frozen food and a small bookshop.

I loved walking the streets of Marais with his eloquent narrator. And I loved how Callanan simultaneously reveals the history of her marriage and of her adopted city. The Fall Summary. You’re sitting in a bar in Amsterdam’s red-light district some time shortly after WWII, when a man introduces himself to you.

His name is Jean-Baptiste Clamence. He used to be a lawyer, and he’s now a judge-penitent. You don’t know what that is, but he promises he’ll explain it to you. I'm trying to think of a more elegant way to put it, but sometimes you've just gotta say: this is a really good book.

As this fine book makes clear, there is little to celebrate in the story of Paris in the occupation and much to lament. WHEN PARIS WENT DARK The City of Light Under German Occupation,   “Paris by the Book is inherently addicting, thrilling and literary in more ways than one.” —Michigan Daily “Liam Callanan’s Paris by the Book is much more than an elegiac portrait of an artist who has vanished.

Here we witness the sacrifices and yearnings of the ones left behind as they continue to love, live, and flourish/5(6). Delivered by a sophisticated, outgoing, yet often suspicious narrator, Albert Camus’s The Fall employs a format that is rather uncommon in world literature. Like novels such as Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, Sartre’s Nausea, and Camus’s own The Stranger, The Fall is set up as a confession by a complicated main character—in this case, an exiled French lawyer named Jean-Baptiste.

Paris might have made his choice based on looks, but he chose the beauty goddess Aphrodite for her bribe. She rewarded him by making the most beautiful mortal, Helen, wife of Menelaus, fall in love with him.

Paris then abducted Helen and took her to Troy, thereby starting the Trojan War.The Fall of Paris: The Siege and the Commune by Alistair Horne ISBN ISBN Paperback; London: Penguin Books, ; ISBN
