Ins her confidence and makes virtual friends including one charismatic and single Englishman who lives in Brittany James And after meeting James one evening in a bar Catherine feels she has regained her ability to fall in love t. Well hmmm I had so wanted this to be good and my own hype regarding it has no doubt caused me to judge it harshly I had read a few blog posts from Petite Anglaise s blog several years ago and was delighted by the simple beauty of her prose With richness she spun anecdotes about her daughter Tadpole and her beloved adopted city of Paris What was enchanting in blog form feels both tedius and plain in book form But the real problem is Petite herself After suffering through the gross book Cleaving ala former blogger Julie Powell of Julie and Julia fame I suppose I really wasn t in the mood to read about another selfish woman who drags her loved ones through page after page of adultery and magically comes out with a six figure book deal at the end I couldn t figure out if Petite purposely painted herself in a negative light something she didn t do on her blog or if this is how it happened and she simply didn t see herself as part of the problem Either way Petite s level of narcissism is stunning She tries to justify it in the beginning painting a picture of Mr Frog as a workaholic and using phrases like on a rare evening out and I was desperate for adult conversation so we can feel sorry for her But it rings hollow she s living in a city she loves works all day with her best friend no less because she couldn t imagine being stuck at home has money for a nanny and babysitter gets endless weeks of vacation time and also has the unwavering support of Tadpole s grandparents who are eager to take the child for long weekends and vacations offering Petite a break It s hardly a sob story As a reader you re supposed to sympathize with her when she goes out with a blog commentor and ends up having an affair with him a mere two weeks later But you can t sympathize with narcissism Such is her level of self absorption that when she finally breaks it to Mr Frog that she s an adulterer and in fact is leaving him she has the gall to criticize his reaction as unacceptable because there hadn t been a single moan or whimper on my account Oh but she s not too upset to run to her blog and write about itAnd to that I say is this woman INSANE And by the way James sounds like a douchebag

Petite Anglaise

Living in Paris with her partner the workaholic Mr Frog and their adorable toddler Tadpole Catherine decides to alleviate the boredom of her metro boulot dodo routine by starting a blog under the name of Petite Anglaise Writing. Although I found the book compulsively readable great beach read and the writing lovely although there was some heavy handed phrases which made me wince I had a very difficult time connecting with and having sympathy for the narrator Catherine whom I found to be a self absorbed and a touch too infatuated with her blog fame I was expecting to read about a woman who dreams of living in Paris and who makes HER life home and career there Instead I found a woman who defines her life by the men who inhabit it and the dedicated readers of her blog I never got to know Catherine as a person beyond the men beyond the blog and I was left wondering what kind of emotional growth did she really makeOther than tender moments with her very lovely daughter Tadpole at times I found Catherine insufferable living her life as a soap opera in order to whet the appetites of her readers and too often relying on her blog to make the communications and connections one should make in REAL life This book is timely however when we re all discussing oversharing and how our online personas affect our lives offline so on that level the book posited some very interesting uestions Yet bits of dialogue like this made me shudderAnd obviously Petite Anglaise can t resist playing to her audience a bit I ll admit that And I m sure my speaking voices isn t the same as her writing voice I came to this book wanting to know about Catherine and left it learning about Petite who seemed and of a flight of fancy
