Praise for Kirsten Lobe's Paris Hangover: "A witty mousse. -Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean. Wickedly entertaining. -Frederic Beigbeder, author of 99 Francs and L'égoïste romantique. Lobe's second novel (Paris Hangover, 2006) offers a steamy peek inside the life of a modern day courtesan. Despite the fancy moniker, a courtesan is simply a woman who trades sexual favors for material. Стр. 8. 1. Титульный лист.

A glamorous fish-out-of-water first novel, Paris Hangover stars Klein, a just-escaped New Yorker with trunk-fulls of fabulous footwear but without the significant relationship she'd really expected and longed to have by now, in her mid-thirties. Fleeing a live-in lover and their sleek Tribeca triplex as well as a career in fashion, Klein stars over in Paris-in a tiny walk-up in the 6th that she had to lie (in broken Franglais) and write a bad check to get, only to discover that, among other things, Parisian apartments don't come with kitchens. Living out of her ten piece of (Louis Vuitton, natch) luggage, Klein plunges into the mysterious world of French men and dating. She muddles her way through: the sexy Renaud, the prototypical Frenchman; dating three men named Jean simultaneously; and one completely wrong Monsieur Married Man, who wants Klein for his very well-kept mistress.Set against a backdrop of knowing references to Paris and its unique manners and mores, Paris Hangover is ultimately a very satisfying modern romance as Klein falls-- possibly permanently--for the least likely man to catch her eye.

I enjoyed this book a lot. Having been to Paris many times, I could tell the author was familiar with the area. It is very easy to forget this is a fiction book because it flowed so well from a diary perspective. It didn't hurt that there is an actual art gallery owned by an Alexandre in the area where the book it set! All of it makes you wonder how much is really fiction! The snarky comments were funny and I felt like I was really on the journey with the author. I have fantasized about moving to Paris so to be able to experience the apartment hunt and daily life issues in Paris was exciting. I enjoyed reading about the dinner parties and navigating dating in Paris it was almost like getting a chance experience that for myself. Very fun book!

I bought this as an airplane read (actually, going to Paris) and while it occupied some of my travel I think I might have become less intelligent after reading this. I almost get the feeling that the author is someone who is actually pretending they are a young woman who worked in fashion and moved to France--it just read as such an in genuine story to me. The narrator was jokesy, not self-aware, and vapid, and the entire book read like a long blog entry written by a teenage boy pretending to be an adult woman in a mocking tone. Not recommended unless (like me) you are stuck on a long flight with nothing else to turn to.

Dear Friends:

I would highly recommend this book by Ms. Lobe, IF you're not too offended by the contineous bad language throughout and use of the F word or her sex sessions. I think Ms. Lobe is a marvelous writer and one which will definitely keep you laughing, (if you enjoy her sense of humor, as I certainly do). Reading this book is like watching a female dog in heat though so be warned. All in fun, I might add.

All in all, a hilarious read,and good fun! Five stars Ms. Lobe!!!!!!

I love a good chick lit book, but this one wasn’t for me. I loved the descriptions of the streets and cafes and even the many men the character met. However, I really didn’t like the main character. She was very conceited and pretentious. She was the best at everything – best lover, best painter, had the best wardrobe, was the most charming, it gets very annoying after a while. Her only flaws were that she tripped and fell in front of a group of people, got food stuck in her hair and will throw in the odd obscenity that comes off as a desperate attempt to be cool or hip. I liked her fashion sense and some of her boyfriends, but she just came off too shallow and one dimensional. I really wanted to like this book, but she kept getting in the way.

There are some great descriptions of Paris throughout the book. Having been there myself, it was great to remember this and that while reading. If you're a lover of all things French (as I am), then this will probably be a decent read for you, if for no other reason than just to dream about being in Paris, France!

I read "Paris Hangover" because I thoroughly enjoyed Kirsten Lobe's other novel, "French Trysts: Secrets of a Courtesan." Both books are similar in that they revolve around young American women who move to Paris and embark in a series of romantic (actually, more like just plain sexual) adventures. In "Paris Hangover," Klein breaks up with her wealthy boyfriend and quits her hot-shot fashion designer job in New York City to fulfill her dream of moving to Paris. The transition doesn't go as smoothly as Klein originally anticipated. She's strapped for cash, doesn't speak the language, and is completely alone. Klein's optimistic approach to finding "Monsieur Right" leads her into a series of relationships with various Frenchmen, and she ultimately discovers that the secret to finding true happiness and fulfilment in her life lies within herself. Of course, that doesn't stop Klein from having a lot of amazing sex throughout the course of the novel (warning: this book is definitely not for prudes!). There's also a very romantic (and completely predictable) happy ending to tie everything together very nicely. Overall, "Paris Hangover" is a fun book for anyone looking for a unique chick lit/romance novel that has numerous French elements thrown in for good measure.

I couldn't put this book down. I bought it in Paris at the recommendation of my friend Suzie. This is a story of a midewestern American girl who moves to Paris and has incredible adventures. I highly recommend this book.
This book is very very dull...I didn't know half of what the author was trying to point out and what the hell she was talking about! I love everything about Paris, so when I saw this book I thought, "Ok, this should be a pretty decent book. It is about fashion and escaping to wonderful Paris." BUT no. I actually returned this book because I just didn't want this book to be on my shelf period...I read the first few chapters and I couldn't take it anymore, it was giving me a headache! I am def going to look closer to the books I choose.
