Originally I didn't like that it didn't follow his usual pattern of starting in the past and moving thru to the near present. It flipped back and forth, spending most of the book in the 1870s-1945 period and only one chapter each time he went back into the past. But in the end I found the story about the characters in his main period very engaging and wouldn't have wanted to cut any of it out. I was a little sad everytime we left the past knowing I wouldn't see those characters again. I could have read more about any of them. The details about Paris, the streets and locations, only makes me want to return even more. ( )

After having failed to make it more than 150 pages into Rutherfurd's story of New York, I was hesitant to tackle another era-spanning epic that centred more around setting than specific characters. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the problem I had with New York was not a repeat performance, and my boredom was largely due to my lack of interest in American history and the frankly lacklustre "fort building" that defined the early stages of settlement in the area. The novel of Paris only traces back to around the 11th Century, so we skip over the original settlement of the area by various tribes (though Rutherfurd may have been able to pull this off since it would have covered cultures that actually interest me like the Vikings and the Romans), and follows the story of a handful of Parisian families through to the end of the Second World War. Rutherfurd focuses mostly on the last 300 years of French history, weaving plotlines from the rule of the Sun King through the Revolution to the Napoleonic wars, but he has momentary denouments that give crucial pieces of backstory that establish key moments in the family histories that effect more contemporary events.

What really got me hooked on the story - besides all of the history and Paris of course - were the amazing cast of characters that Rutherfurd wove into the narrative. The story tracks so many families that it's a really good thing that they included a chart that laid out the family successions alongside a timeline, so Rutherfurd got away with a lot more jumping around back and forth through time that would normally be allowed with this many diverse players. He takes families from every corner of Parisian society - working class from Montmartre, a token Jewish group, Catholics and Protestants, aristocrats, artists, businessmen, and ladies of the evening - so it is absolutely enthralling to see how all of their stories interconnet, whether the interactions are good or rife with conflict. The novel wraps up with the Second World War, where all of the characters are finally brought onto one stage and are largely united in their reaction to the German Occupation. Some of these reactions are expected (the Le Sourds are staunch rabble-rousers with very obvious left-wing tendencies), but some reactions are more surprising, especially in their duplicity. True characters emerge, and Rutherfurd proves that he has a fantastic grasp of how human nature changes and how a city can change based on the people who define it.

If I ever had any doubts about wanting to visit Paris before (and to study more French history), this novel absolutely dispels them! ( )

Great story threaded around the generations of several families in Paris and France. Difficult to recall who is who at the start of chapters set in different centuries but once in you remember. ( )

gaat te veel over menselijke relaties, de echt belangrijke gebeurtenissen in de geschiedenis van Frankrijk (zoals de revolutie en de beide wereld oorlogen) worden heel zijdelings behandeld, wat erg jammer is. ( )

This overlong melodrama is too skimpy on the particularization and history that could have made it palatable. With the exception of the building of the Eiffel Tower, which is well and compellingly depicted, the historic, Paris-specific material is thin and undistinguished. This is then all padded out with a story line that becomes increasingly soap-opera and melodramatic, culminating in an inexplicable character "development" of a thoroughly conventional ingenue into a quasi-incestuous immoral figure. The very final section, on World War II Resistance Paris, returns to interest, but other than that section, and the Eiffel Tower, the rest of the history is shallow. Particularly unsatisfactory, almost absurd, is the French Revolution which is given glancing treatment just because it had to be in there, but not well done. ( )
