I liked this book in some ways – it is a sort of compilation of mini articles from a magazine – but very French orientated – which was a problem for me, as I don’t see myself having a French style at all – too short and dumpy – which was the other problem. The photos, wonderful though they were, were all of tall skinny women! No normal older – or even younger – women at all. And none of them were that old – just not young any more – by that they meant in their 20s.
I felt that the sayings were applicable to me and would have been even better if I had read the book in my 40s rather than now, when I am rather older than that, which was why a lot of the material was not applicable – and I’ve not had a divorce, and was married in my early 20s, so their lifestyle wasn’t applicable either. Which meant many of the articles weren’t.
Which was probably why the shorter pithy statements appealed to me more than the longer articles.
Guessing that it is aimed at women in their 40s or early 50s, I would give it 4 stars.
