Paris for One and Other Stories Reviews
'Paris for One and Other Stories,' is a collection of eleven romantic shorts with JoJo Moyes the headline author and writer of the main title. Paris for One offers easy, light romantic reading and is my first outing with this author. I was highly anticipating that I would enjoy the writing style but unfortunately, for my personal taste, it was lacking the power in the prose to engage my attention or convincingly draw me into the story. I found myself disengaged from the characters and felt some ...more
ARC from the publisher.
If I was rating this book just on the short story Paris for One, it would easily be four stars. While I really enjoyed Nell’s story, I did find the synopsis to be a bit misleading. Nell doesn’t take the plunge and go on her mini-vacation alone. She heads to Paris assuming her boyfriend will be arriving shortly thereafter. He doesn’t show up, and through a series of events, she finds herself staying in Paris (as the title suggests,) alone. I found it really easy to ...more
4☆ Great collection of short stories
This is my first book by Jojo it was a fun read with some great stories.
Each short story is very different.
However they feature romance, some humour, breakups, secret love affairs, a little mystery and lots of different emotions.
They give a portrayal of life and the problems women face within marriage and relationships. Not every story is written with a happy ending.
Paris for one is the main story and it literally is what it says.... Nell embarks on a trip wit ...more
What an amazing book. It's the first collection of short stories that I've loved every story. Jojo Moyes outdoes herself with this novella and and 8 short stories. The novella, Paris for One is great, about a young woman discovering she can be responsible for her own happiness and doesn't need to kowtow to a boyfriend who thinks only of himself. All the others are quick reads that are all about being happy. Great read and will be a perfect stocking stuffer since it's due out mid-October.
Había leído varias reseñas negativas e iba con bastante miedo pero la verdad es que me he llevado una sorpresa enorme, porque ne ha encantado! Mucha variedad de relatos (dos largos y el rrsto bastante breves) que además de hacernos viajar a diferentes lugares nos traen una gran varoedad de personajes y skbre todo una gran varoedad de tipos de amor (desde el más tóxico al más sano). Y de hecho, se podría decirse que me han gustados absolutamente todos los relatos, algo que nunca antes me habia pa ...more

El primer relato y más extenso, cuenta una historia bastante original y dinámica en la que no dejan de suceder cosas y atrapa desde el primer capítulo. Quizá su corta extensión sea el principal motivo de que todo avance a un buen ritmo. En este relato se mezcla el romanticismo con algo de humor en ciertos momentos que hacen de él una mezcla bastante interesante.
El segundo gran relato (después de varios cortos) nos muestra dos historias ...more
Read for the June BOTM , for the "Chick Lit Book Club" here at Goodreads. I loved "Paris for One", but found the other short stories disappointing.
Last summer, I attempted to read my first Jojo Moyes' book, Windfallen, and quit after about 60 pages in because of the writing style. I decided to give her writing another go with Paris for One and Other Stories, but, sadly, I felt much the same about these short stories. I enjoyed Paris for One fairly well, but the other stories were somewhat irritating and forgettable. I was hoping I'd like this more, and I still plan to read Me Before You and After You, but this was a miss for me.
