    1. I have never looked up so many words in a book, even in a dozen books So thankful for Nook s look up function, I even looked up some just to make sure I understood their use I guess that s what happens when you read a book about a Paris concierge who is a closet intellectual and an almost teenager who is hiding her brilliance A wonderful coming of age book about a 54 year old who learns to accept herself Well worth the time to look up all those words




    2. Saw the film first and loved it which did not diminish at all the pleasure of the read Great language, humor, perceptions.
