Review of Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
I love coming to you with a book review that I am over the moon excited about. I absoltuely loved Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb. I was in the hardest perdicument because I could not stop reading the book and at the exact same time did not want the book to end. I actually put it down with forty pages left just so I could have some to read the next day. I had major book hangover after I finished reading the Last Christmas in Paris because no other book characters were matching up for me.
The Last Christmas in Paris is written in letter form, which is one of the many things I loved about it. I love books written in this format I.E. Dear Mr Knightly, 84 Charring Cross Road, and The Guerncy Literary and Potatoe Pie Peel Society. There is something so personal about books written in this format. I feel like the characters are so honest and really open up. At one point in the book Evie shares some things with Tom where she literally says that if this were not written in a letter she is not sure she would be sharing it with him. Basically just give me all the books written in letter form and I will be so happy.
Evie and Tom share letters over the course of Toms tour of duty during World War I. Evie could have been a spoiled young women who just wanted to act like the war was not happening, but she did not take her safety for granted. She was always attempting to do her bit for the war effort. I loved Evies character and appreciated how real and true she was from the begining of the book to the end. And of course there is sweet Tom who she wrote hundreds of letters to. I just don't have words to share how much I loved Tom. Their friendship through letters was written in such a perfect way.
I would highly reccomend this book to anyone. It is the perfect read for this holiday season and puts your mind in exactly the right perspective.
Overall Rating - 5/5 stars
