"All that mankind has done, thought, gained or been: it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books." Thomas Carlyle
What a tangible visual!
I know! Good example of the power of literary devices!
Lovely quote! Paris in love sounds like a nice book (I went to look it up on goodreads :))
It's set up as longer essays to start a chapter and then the rest of a chapter is in snippets. She kept a journal and FB posts as she lived there and these snippets are from those two places.
I love it when an author is able to capture so vividly, and with unique words, their perspective of a moment. This was so highly visual, as AG said above.
I agree. I just finished the book and it was okay, not really my preferred way of setting up a story. But, her descriptions, like above, were great. They always caught my eye.
What an odd quote, yet it works.
Yea, the oddness adds to it in a weird way!
