Re: [COMPLETE] The Ladies' Paradise by Emile Zola - phil

Re: [COMPLETE] The Ladies' Paradise by Emile Zola - phil

Kristin, I am so enjoying your recording of The Ladies' Paradise. I've been watching the BBC version and hadn't ever read anything by this author. There are of course many differences between the show and the book, but I am pleased with the similarities. I love the descriptions of the shops and all ...

I usually find the book reviews by doing a search in Google Books for the title and adding the word "review" to the search. Here are some examples: http://librivox...
