Paris for One and Other Stories Reviews
París para uno y otras historias es Jojo Moyes en estado puro, y creo que no hay mejor alago que ese. Pese a que me ha faltado más de algunas historias, ha sido una muy buena lectura si lo analizo desde una visión global.
Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes - 2 stars.
Let me start by saying I ADORE Jojo Moyes and this is the main reason I requested this ARC when I am not a fan of short stories. If anyone could whisk me away into another world with few words it would be Moyes, unfortunately even she could not make this happen.
Some of the short stories I didn't understand and others left me feeling "bleugh" or were very bland. Only one managed to capture my attention and draw me to the characters and tha ...more
I originally read Paris for One about 2 years ago. I rated it 4 stars and I thought it was a good short story. I was impressed by the fact that it focused more on a connection between two people rather than force some kind of insta-love. I didn't enjoy it as much this time, I don't know if that is to do with the fact that my tastes have changed or because I wasn't reading it for the first time. I think it was the former and I do think my tastes have changed slightly, but I rated it 3.5 stars thi ...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
I don't usually like short stories, but this collection was very enjoyable.
It was satisfying to read the stories during my commute to work. The book ended appropriately with a short Christmas story. Total chick lit, but good!
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.
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
Easy, fun read.. Makes me want to drop everything and go to Paris!
