Natalie and François are the perfect couple, and perfectly happy. But after François dies suddenly, only seven years into their still blissful marriage, the widowed Natalie erects a fortress around her emotions into which no one can gain access.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Crowell | 2/20/2014

    " This book is very "French" and reads like a screenplay for a foreign film--surprise! It has been made into a movie by it's screenwriter/author DF--I'm looking forward to seeing the movie as I really enjoy both actors who play the main roles of Natalie and Markus. I did like the story but I think more of it's substance might show up on screen. "

    " Bought this because I love everything French and I was not disappointed. This will soon be a movie with Audrey Tautou. Charming story. "

    " The book is definitely better than the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irus | 1/26/2014

    " One review describes this book as "unputdownable," and I couldn't agree more. I was hooked by page 5 and read the book straight through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kasia | 1/19/2014

    " A short, quick, sweet read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sanjuktha | 12/3/2013

    " I never thought I would ever say this, but I liked the movie more than the boook... the book was more like a screenplay "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lydia | 8/7/2013

    " this is just a wonderful book that is like a velvet to one's soul. I enjoyed everything about it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Klaudyna Z. | 7/25/2013

    " This book was just weird for me. I didn't really like or identify with any of the characters. I felt like there were no emotions and the whole story just felt mechanical to me. At least it was a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marge Mclaughlin | 7/11/2013

    " Enjoyable story, enjoyable style, I really like this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/9/2013

    " Sweet and grounded and nicely written...you could almost miss it if you were looking too far or for more. I liked this book a lot. Not profound, not trite, but well-written and real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leshawn | 1/4/2013

    " I thought this was a delightful book and I can't wait to read it again. Full of lovely imagery, wit and beauty! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Stanton | 11/2/2012

    " This is a really sweet and charming read. At times very funny at others a little sad ......a very unusual and kooky style of writing . Definitely want to see the film now. Highly recommended !! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gillian Stern | 10/3/2012

    " Finalement un deception - j'attendais qqch de bcp plus interessant. Narratif, style d'ecriture - assez banales, trop evidents. Je ne suis pas inspire de chercher ses autres livres. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne-françoise | 6/5/2012

    " Mon avis sur "Miss Alfie, croqueuse de livres" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 5/21/2012

    " A sweet and delicate little read, just as the name suggests. It was easy to read, and I found myself stopping frequently to ponder the little sayings and sentences, with just a hint of a smile on my face. Not a page turner by any means, but worth the hour or two on a rainy Sunday arvo. "
