Great fun, great lesson for life...
15 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my old COLLEGE days, reading this novel for my degree in French, WAS A MUST... but this TV SERIES IS SO MUCH EASIER AND FUN. Accurate enough to pass the test, but as usual, nothing beats the paper and ink thing.

Encourages any one to go buy the book and read it, and discover more about French culture, literature and way of life. It will also make a very good invitation for your next trip to Paris. Way out better that the Da Vinci thing so much in Fade now.

I recommend this for parents of young, quiet, but very intelligent men. It is inspiring, and teaches well: What goes around, comes around: Most of the Time with earnings!
