My Review: 5 stars

I love this book! it's loaded with lots of valuable information like where you should go,the must see attractions,pictures of places,arts,food,culture,articles,website and shop recommendations,funny stories and revelations and all sorts of things that's definitely worth checking out.Even at the comfort of my home I felt and can totally imagine all these beautiful places,the streets,the french culture,what its like and so on.Though it's quite heavy and bulky I highly recommend it! especially to those people whose been dreaming and wanting to go to Paris,experience Paris life like you've never seen before,this wonderful compilation of a book is so awesome it will definitely bring and boost your knowledge about everything and what's Paris is all about.Definitely a must read before your trip/next trip to Paris! I also saw a bit of similarities between the French culture and my culture quite shocking yet interesting that made me happy knowing because I never thought I got a wee bit of French in me.
