Book Description
Based on Stephen Clarke’s own experiences and with names changed to “avoid embarrassment, possible legal action, and to prevent the author’s legs being broken by someone in a Yves Saint Laurent suit,” A Year in the Merde provides perfect entertainment for Francophiles and Francophobes alike.

    很久以前就想看這本書,圖書館發現還有續集,就一起借回來了。

    內容主要是一個英國人到巴黎工作,後來慢慢被同化成巴黎人的故事。

    裡面的內容完全把英國人特有的嘲諷開到最大化,只是橫寫的書讓我閱讀速度大為減弱,加上有時候還要轉個彎換成英文才比較懂英國人的笑點。慢慢看的話還蠻好笑的。

    接下來再來看他的續集,希望也很好笑。

    又,法國人日子過真爽,擺爛都能生活,哈哈。 ...continue

    A light reading with a good touch of wit. It wasn’t funny tough, and I have found it a bit boring sometimes. Interesting the description of the corrupted state trade union mentality of French that is similar somehow to the Italians’ one. I would have preferred less sex stories and more details about French mentality. I think I will read the sequel when I have time.

    如果只看內容的話,還真感受不到這是一本「小說」,非常寫實兼生活化。用幽默的筆觸描寫一個英國人來到法國這個「世仇」國家所感受到的文化差異,以及最後如何融入並喜歡上巴黎這個城市。

    很輕鬆有趣的一本書,但我覺得續作就沒這麼精采了。
