"Paris" Edward Rutherford
The English writer Edward Rutherford is known for his historical novels, and Paris is just one of them. If you've always wanted to know how a small military settlement of the ancient Romans on the swampy banks of the Seine miraculously turned into the City of Light, the epicenter of Western civilization, then grab this book. Using the example of generations of several Parisian families, the writer tells a fascinating and bloody story of one of the most stylish cities in the world. Family secrets, love, betrayal, politics, faith are woven into a bright ball called Paris!
"Apartment in Paris" by Guillaume Musso
What could be more terrible than seeking solitude and being in the same house with a stranger? According to the plot of the novel, former detective Madeleine Greene and playwright Gaspard Coutant quite accidentally rented the same apartment in Paris. Previously, a famous artist lived here, who died soon after the death of his own son. It is known that before his death, the former owner painted several paintings, but no one has ever seen them. The heroes decide to sort out this strange story without even knowing what incredible discoveries they will make. And who knows, perhaps together with the solution they will find themselves.
"The holiday that is always with you" Ernest Hemingway
In the 1920s, young Hemingway and his wife came to work in Paris. In 1956, while passing through France, Ernest again stops in the same place where he lived many years ago, at the Ritz Hotel. To the surprise of the writer, his suitcases are returned to him, which he forgot during his last visit. In things he finds notebooks, based on which this book was compiled, published after the death of the writer. In it, Paris appears as a city-holiday, where, without an extra penny in your soul, you can live, work and be happy.
Notre Dame Cathedral Victor Hugo
The legendary work by Victor Hugo was the first historical novel in French. The book was published in 1831 and since then has been reprinted and filmed many times. The tragic story of the beautiful Esmeralda, the hunchback Quasimodo, the police captain Phoebe and the abbot of the cathedral, Frollo, has become one of the hallmarks of Paris and the Notre Dame Cathedral itself. We highly recommend rereading this cult love novel, and if you are just about to get to know it, then we are very envious of you.
"Arc de Triomphe" Erich Maria Remarque
The novel "Arc de Triomphe" by Erich Maria Remarque, published in 1945, repeated the success of another cult book by the writer "All Quiet on the Western Front
