Paris for One and Other Stories Reviews

    París para una y otras historias es una colección de cuentos de Jojo Moyes. A lo largo de este último años he leído la mayoría de sus novelas y cada novela es única y siempre me cuesta calificarlas. Los personajes principales son siempre interesantes, los elementos románticos son tiernos y cargados emocionalmente y las mujeres bien construidas; cada una de las mujeres de las historias eran memorables, interesantes y únicas.

    París para una y otras historias es una colección de cuentos de Jojo Moyes. A lo largo de este último años he leído la mayoría de sus novelas y cada novela es única y siempre me cuesta calificarlas. Los personajes principales son siempre interesantes, los elementos románticos son tiernos y cargados emocionalmente y las mujeres bien construidas; cada una de las mujeres de las historias eran memorables, interesantes y únicas.

    Es el primer libro de esta colección y ocupa la mayor parte del contenido del libro. Este es romántico con las grandes descripciones de París y contiene una gran heroína. La sensación verdadera del poder de la mujer funciona a través de este libro.

    Es realmente bueno. Está lleno de misterio. Con algunos grandes giros y un final sorprendente. Se trata de un evento de relaciones públicas que va horriblemente mal. Esto asegura un puñetazo poderoso para un cuento.

    Simplemente me encantó el final. Esta es una historia encantadora que nos dice a todos que se deben tomar las cosas que nuestras parejas hacen por sentado. Y ser agradecidos todos los días que se tienen.

    Una mujer casada se reúne con su amante secreto pasado en una fiesta y ambos se dan cuenta de que tienen sentimientos uno por el otro todavía y también tienen arrepentimientos.

    Realmente fue algo forzado este relato, una historia algo oscura, no fue precisamente de mis historias favoritas...

    Este es realmente una historia que te muestra estar agradecido todos los días por la gente maravillosa que tenemos en nuestras vidas y ser feliz con las cosas maravillosas que nos han dado.

    Este es uno de los relatos más raros y oscuros en este libro. Lo que nos hace ver un lado diferente de Jojo, que pocas veces hemos visto antes.

    En este libro debía haber un relato que nos muestra dos historias separadas por muchos años pero con un nexo en común bastante importante, como ya Jojo nos tiene acostumbrados por sus ultimas publicaciones, pues este libro no es la excepción, una historia que podría ser una precuela de La Chica que dejaste atrás... lo curioso es que este fue el relato que menos me gusto, pero ACLARO que el libro de La chica que dejaste atrás es maravilloso...

    Aunque tiene un final muy bonito, es un poco confuso, ya que no logre entender la moraleja o el mensaje que se estaba dando. Estoy algo confusa sobre lo que se trata.

    Tampoco es uno de mis favoritos de este libro. Esta es la historia de una mujer casada descuidada que encuentra un teléfono móvil abandonado y comienza una relación de sexting con un extraño al azar, el final es algo crudo pero feliz (?.

    Una historia tal vez poco realista, pero con el mensaje de que siempre habrá alguien que sea tu ángel guardián, que no todo esta perdido y que aunque creas que estas sola, no lo estas.

    Es la historia sobre una mujer que se ha vuelto fría, que está casada. Sin embargo, un paseo casual en taxi hace que la mujer vea las cosas bajo una luz diferente. Esta es la historia que te recuerda hacer que cada día de tu vida cuente.

    Mientras Jojo es una narradora con talento y su delicado toque con sus historias siempre está presente. Ésta es una colección muy dulce de historias. Todas tienen un mensaje muy dulce. Como no tomar a la gente que usted ama para sentado, pasar el tiempo con los que tu amas, hacer que cada día cuente, hacer las cosas que te hacen feliz, ir hacia tus metas y ser una mujer independiente y fuerte.

    Dicho esto, quisiera que estas historias cortas fueran novelas separadas. Hubo momentos en los que sentí que los personajes y las historias necesitaban más espacio para desarrollarse. Realmente disfruté de esta colección y como todos los libros de Jojo Moyes siempre te hacen reflexionar.

    En conclusión la colección era una lectura maravillosa y amé los romances ingeniosos y los personajes realistas. Si estás buscando una novela impulsada por el personajes llenos de corazón y romance, esta es la colección para ti!

    This book has nine stories about troubled relationships from the perspectives of the women in each. The first,

    This book has nine stories about troubled relationships from the perspectives of the women in each. The first,

    , is the length of a novella while the others are all short stories. I liked some more than others but really enjoyed them collectively. The narration performances were outstanding and contributed greatly to my overall reading experience. Below are short summaries of each with my reactions.

    Nell and her boyfriend Pete are off for a weekend in Paris, or so she thinks. Pete turns out to be a no-show and Nell decides to stay and experience the city of lights on her own.

    I actually loved this meandering and delightful story. Nell is such a straight arrow who steps outside of herself and turns a potentially crummy set of circumstances into a wonderful adventure. I enjoyed this immensely.

    This story about a PR nightmare has just the right touch of irony. Short but it hit the right notes.

    A woman's husband surprises her with a getaway vacation but it can't conjure up a bygone romance. This was so realistic it almost hurt but I loved the ending.

    A married woman encounters her former secret lover at a party and both have regrets they didn't even know they had. While this was not one of my favorites, it still was pretty interesting.

    A weary working mother and neglected wife has a pair of fantastic shoes transform her life overnight. This is one of my favorites, full of humor with a perfect ending.

    A woman working at a jewelry store has an encounter with one of the robbers of the place while it is in progress. This was my least favorite as it was a bit far fetched. Still, it was interesting.

    A married, working mother needs a new coat but the one she really wants is out of reach as they're struggling to make ends meet. It has a lovely and pertinent ending.

    A neglected married woman finds a cell phone and gets caught up in a texting relationship with a twist. This was touching and a bit sad though I got hooked through the end.

    A woman in a cold, dispassionate marriage is struggling to find the items on a Christmas list created by her husband for his mother. A fortunate ride in a taxi made this a really special story. Loved it.

    Jojo Moyes is known for her engaging books that look at romantic relationships with insight and humor. This is a collection of nine contemporary stories. After reading weeks of depressing political commentary in the newspapers lately, it was fun to escape to this light, entertaining book. It was just what I needed!

    ★★★★☆

    This novella is takes up over half the book and felt like a thorough open and close story. I enjoyed it and clearly felt the Paris setting and the heroine's emotions. This was a good one.

    ★★★★☆

    A bit of mystery with a surprise plot twist... and very surprise ending. I probably should have seen it all coming but I really didn't. Enjoyable!

    ★★★★★

    Hands down, my favorite out of the bunch. We take each other for granted much too easily and our contributions become a mundane expectation instead of a thankful appreciation. Loved it!

    ★★★★☆

    The grass is always greener on the other side. Yeah right. Glad to see a change of heart.

    ★★★★★

    A fabulous pair of shoes can change your life. Loved this one!

    ★★★★☆

    So Ms. Moyes has a borderline dark side! This one surprised me in a good way!

    ★☆☆☆☆

    I listened to this one twice and still can't tell you what it was about.

    ★★☆☆☆

    Busted! Unfortunately, I didn't find this one all that enjoyable.

    ★★★☆☆

    So many factors can make the holidays stressful instead of magical. After all is said and done, it's easy to be left wondering what's the point of all the hassle. Moral of the story: Make every day of your life count and spend your holidays with people who care ♥

    4☆ Great collection of short stories

    This is my first book by Jojo it was a fun read with some great stories.

    Each short story is very different.

    However they feature romance, some humour, breakups, secret love affairs, a little mystery and lots of different emotions.

    They give a portrayal of life and the problems women face within marriage and relationships. Not every story is written with a happy ending.

    Paris for one is the main story and it literally is what it says.... Nell embarks on a trip wit

    Paris for one is the main story and it literally is what it says.... Nell embarks on a trip with her boyfriend... only he doesn't turn up...leaving poor Nell alone.... She shows so much strength when she decides to go to Paris alone, who knows what exciting encounters Paris has to offer!

    There are 8 other short stories included is this delightful collection.

    Some very good, others are just ok.

    But that's ok as not all stories are to everyone's taste.

    For this reason I chose not to list the ones I particularly liked as I feel it's only fair you read them with a fresh look.

    Overall a delightful and different collection.

    I received this book from the Publisher in exchange for a honest and fair review via Netgalley.

    Paris for One is collection of two novellas and 9 short stories.

    (or I should say novella) was

    . It is a standalone novella, but is also connected to Moyes' full lenght novel

    . 80 pages long, the story follows two couples placed in different time, separated by 80 years, who's stories together make a whole. Even though I really liked it, I think I would appreciate it even more if I have read the novel.

    It is fun and easy to read, but I think

    because characters were really bad when it comes to communication. If there were no mobile phones, the story would make more sense.

    Some were forgetable (Love in the Afternoon), some were there so Jojo Moyes' fans would have something new to read, and one was so.... silly and ridiculous (I don't mean it in a good way). The story I'm talking about is

    I don't want to sound rude here, but I'll say this anyway: some stories sounded like someone's practice writing, so

    If you haven't read anything by her before, and you come upon this book,

    La historia de Nell y Fabien es muy linda!!!

    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

I think it was the former and I do think my tastes have changed slightly, but I rated it 3.5 stars this time (which isn't that much of a change to the rating but my feelings towards it have definitely changed). So it is a cute story overall but kind of lacking. I found most of the other stories to be lacking too. I really enjoyed Holdups (I gave it a 4.5). That story was very entertaining and different, it was also a bit far-fetched but I indulged it. A Bird in the Hand was the second best, getting 4 stars from me but the rest were all very underwhelming. That is why this book amounted to 3 stars. I hate to be mean but it feels like a money grab to me.

    ----------------------

    "And yet something-perhaps an English predisposition not to appear rude, not to make a fuss, even if it does end up in your untimely murder-propels her forward."

    "She is so good at saying it now, as if it happened to someone else entirely. Her voice even, light, as if it were the most insubstantial of facts. As if it hadn't smashed their existence into a million pieces, a falling meteor, radioactive for years afterward, scorching the earth."

    Last summer, I attempted to read my first Jojo Moyes' book,

    , and quit after about 60 pages in because of the writing style. I decided to give her writing another go with

    , but, sadly, I felt much the same about these short stories. I enjoyed

    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

    and

    , but this was a miss for me.
