    This book is somewhat interesting.as long as you pretend that it has a completely different title The premise is to provide a guide for Paris after hours divided into five nights where each night i based on a sense Being that I have an upcoming trip to Paris, I thought this was a unique concept and couldn t wait to read it What a huge disappointment.The first several chapters are mostly the author hemming and hawing about doing a night tour Should I do one How do I do one What should This book is somewhat intere...

    I ve read two other books by John Baxter, and enjoyed those farthan this one This felt like a loosely assembled collection of anecdotes and Paris factoids of which Baxter has plenty, but it seemed like he was just dumping them all in one place, rather than arranging them in a cohesive order strung together with the shaky thread of the five senses It was a great idea on theory but wasn t executed well, and I don t know if that s totally...

    If you have all the time in the world and want to cull a half dozen decent anecdotes out of this volume, go ahead Be warned, it s not useful at all for a traveler, and may enrage you with its abstruse story telling style and the self importance of the autho...

    I m a sucker for anything about Paris, and I ve read a couple of John Baxter s other books, so I was looking forward to a pleasant holiday read Unfortunately, Mr Baxter was phoning this one in and relied way too heavily on his tales of sexual weirdness for my taste Don t waste your time.

    Hit and miss A nice look into the daily life and history of Paris, but the layout isn t exactly as promised Some of the chapters in certain sensory breakups don t make, well, sense Like food in the sound chapter The ideas area also pretty scattered Not everything even has anything to do with night in Paris I.E gardens exist at all times and food vendors are mostly open in the day time, so why talk about them in a book about Nights The writer clearly comes from a love of Paris and a c Hit and miss A nice look into the daily life and history of Paris, but the layout isn t exactly as promised Some of the chapters in certain sensory break...

    Similar to his earlier book The Most Beautiful Walk in the World, John Baxter delivers a confused and rambling self indulgent pseudo memoire He seemsconcerned with humble bragging about his past experiences with celebrities and contributing to the fetishization of Paris than with providing a real guide book to the city While Baxter is clearly an intellectual with lots of knowledge and stories to share, the format of this book is a disaster His chapters are sloppy and disorganized, and Similar to his earlier book The Most Beautiful Walk in the World, John Baxter delivers a confused and rambling self indulgent pseudo memoire He seemsconcerned with humble bragging about his past experien...

    If you re looking for a book with different things to do and see in Paris over 5 nights with nice anecdotes, this is not that book It is easy to read and it s not uninteresting, there is a lot of interesting history, much of it recent, but it was just not what I expected at all.
