    This was a cute, quick and easy read. I really liked this story. I am impressed that Jojo Moyes fit everything into 96 pages. I loved the plot. I would love to read more stories like this one. I think stories that involve a connection between strangers have so much potential but they usually always have insta-love. This story didn't have any insta-love and that's probably why I liked it so much. Moyes did an excellent job with the execution of this book. I liked the characters. Again, I just want to say how impressed I am that Jojo Moyes fit everything into 96 pages. The characters were a little clichéd but they weren't one-dimensional. I loved how Nell pushed herself and there was good character development in the book. I liked Jojo Moyes's writing. The language she used was simple but it still flowed very beautifully. I didn't do any skimming and I didn't lose interest. I think Jojo Moyes has a way with words. Even though the story was predictable, I was still interested in it and that was down to the writing. I just became so engrossed in the story and the characters. I also liked the ending. Moyes didn't try to wrap everything up in a pretty bow, she left their story unwritten. I would recommend this book to people who are looking for something quick/easy or if you're a Jojo Moyes/romance fan. It's good.

    I enjoyed this short story featuring Nell as she embarks on an ill fated weekend getaway with her unreliable boyfriend to the most romantic city in the world. At under a hundred pages, it was entirely readable in less than an hour. When Nell arrives in Paris, having been abandoned by said boyfriend, she is faced with two options - stay, and make the most of her time there or catch the first train home to London. Luckily for the reader, she stays and meets a very handsome Frenchman! Just who doesn't yearn for a little holiday romance?Short. Sweet. Ideal for chick lit fans.

    Such a cute, speedy read. For such a short story it's really well developed. Sometimes the whole being in "the right place at the right time" thing can be very cliche but because this was a short story it worked really well. I feel like this would make such a perfect movie! This was every romantic movie I've ever watched but I loved it!!

    Ok, this one was pretty good. I was expecting not to like it,like with Dead Man Talking, but I thought this was great fun.I can recommend as a quick read, though for someone who struggles with reading it's a great start for getting into it.

    Paris for Oneis a short feel good novel and I have to say I liked it a lot! It didn't feel unfinished or annoyingly vague. It was just perfect especially the ending.

    Es un relato corto muy encantador.Me fascino, aunque fue muy cliche el romance, es muy tierno y romántico. Sin nada de drama, lo cual a veces eso se agradece.Recomiendo ampliamente este relato. Jojo Moyes lo ha vuelto a hacer!!!. Y que mejor que un bonito relato narrado en París.

    I LOVED this. I wish it was a full length novel. Jojo Moyes, please write a full length book about Nell and Fabian, they were amazing characters and I loved the romance!

    Although I’ve read hundreds of amazing reviews of Jojo Moyes’s books and everyone I know adores her stories, I’ve never had the chance – or the time – to pick them up myself. So when Paris for One was released as part of the Quick Reads initiative, I jumped at the opportunity and decided to give it a go.With only 95 pages, Moyes’s novel is a super quick read. Just like the rest of the Quick Reads titles, Paris for One is aimed at those who, for whatever reason, find reading a difficult and daunting task. However, it doesn’t mean that you, as a bookworm who can easily devour a book in a day, won’t enjoy it. In fact, it’s perfect for days when you’re running errands and you know there will be some waiting time here and there. Whether you need to pop into the post office, do the school run or you’re about to go on a quick lunch break, it’s a perfect companion. I loved the fact that I could read during my lunch break without having to carry a 400-page long hardback with me, like I did the week before.As for the novel itself, one of the things that surprised me the most about this book is how much Moyes managed to pack into such a short story. A few chapters in, I already felt like I knew Nell and her friends – and it was great to see how much she’s changed by the end. There are authors who struggle with character development even though they have at least 300 pages to work with, and Moyes only had 95. Yet, I didn’t feel as if something was missing or as if the characters lacked depth.Read more >>

    y lo que pasa en París, se queda en París...En general ha sido todo lo que esperaba -que no era mucho la verdad- se lee muy fácil y es muy ameno e increíblemente corto -un relato mas que nada- de un fin de semana entero que pasa Nell en París sola, al no presentarse su novio al aeropuerto.Me ha agradado, mas que nada por la similitud que tiene a la historia contada en las películas de Richard Linklater de Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight... que si no las habéis visto CORRED que son una joya del genero romántico -al cual no soy muy fan, pero es que Jessie y Celine me superan en todos los sentidos-Nell se ha recriminado toda su vida el no ser lo suficientemente impulsiva y el de tener que ser meticulosa respecto todo, por eso cuando nada sale de acuerdo a lo planeado decide dejarse llevar y disfrutar su fin de semana en la ciudad de las luces...No hay mas del que pueda hablar, mi PDF de contrabando tenia un total de 63 paginas, incluyendo portada, indice, sinopsis, créditos, e información de la autora así que supondrán...Lo lei en un Blur mientras esperaba terminara un ciclo de ropa para lavar... -verídico- y lo he disfrutado...

    This is a light and funny collection of one novella and several short stories. I prefer the depth of novels, but if you’re looking for quick, short reads, this is fun.Moyes is able to give intriguing glimpses into her characters’ lives in very brief tales. In a couple of the stories, married life does not seem appealing at all. The short story Holdups is particularly funny, but there are a lot of hilarious lines throughout the book. There isn’t a ton of depth here, but it was definitely an enjoyable read. This book reminded me of the work of Marian Keyes, an author I adore.To read more of my reviews, please visit:

    The heroine was a boring doormat and the love interest wasn't much better. I guess it was passable for a candy floss, cheesy, chick lit read.

    3.7 stars------------------------------This review is originally posted on The Bookish Girl------------------------------You can get this book from Book Depository------------------------------Stood up by her boyfriend, Nell finds herself alone in the City of Love. This book tells the magical story of a woman in search for her true self and stepping out of her comfort zone.I was flying alone when I read this, which was probably why I felt so relatable with Nell. Insecure and cautious, Nell loves to plan and freaks when life doesn't go accordingly. Throughout the 96 pages, I love to see how she grows and becomes an impulsive, fun and independent woman who fights for what she wants. As for the story, it may not be as convincing since the whole story takes place within a weekend, which makes me question about the romance. Could you really fall in love in a few hours? Hm I don't think so but I really love the ending for it is reasonable. It would be great if Jojo Moyes will write a full length novel about Nell as I definitely want to know more about the characters and how the story goes.I'm pretty furious at myself that I didn't pick up a Jojo Moyes book sooner. I love her writing style. It has the power to calm you, to make you want to devour every single word. This book marks the beginning of my love for Jojo Moyes, and I can't wait to read more of her works.

    I have never read a Moyes book before, (I know, where have I been?!) And so I love the quick readathon they get released. I feel that it's a chance for me to discover authors I may never have come across before. Moyes is definitely going to be an author I look out for now. Paris for One is about Nell, she is 26 and so far has never been away with a boyfriend before. I really don't want to say too much as it will spoil it for you and this is a book you do not want spoilt! It is short, but I felt it was perfect. I was able to be will Nell on her trip to Paris and enjoy every moment. Not once while reading I felt rushed, which was really brilliant! This is a quick read and perfect for anyone with a busy like that wants to dip into something. I read this in one sitting and really enjoyed it. I would certainly recommend this quick read to everyone. It's light hearted fun. Nell is a very likable character, one which I felt I could connect with. One of my favourite characters was actually the hotel assistant. I found I was reading her parts with a French accent in my head! The dialogue between her, Nell and the American Lady I found was very comical at times. This book is perfect for chilling on the sofa with a cup of tea and some galaxy. I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.

    Quick read indeed. Nice taste of Paris, little bit of french & a sweet story of one night shared between an English woman and a Parisian.“And everything you say sounds better because it’s in French”“How a man who prides himself on being good with words can find himself without a single one.”

    Das ging...ähm...schnell. Für dieses Büchlein hab ich weniger als eine Stunde gebraucht 😮Eine sehr kurzweilige Geschichte, die aufgrund ihrer Länge natürlich wenig Tiefe hat, aber für Zwischendurch ganz unterhaltsam zu lesen ist. Kein Must Read, aber ganz nett und ganz süß.

    For the last 8 or so years "The Reading Agency" in the UK have been producing easily accessible and very affordable short books, i.e. Quick Reads to encourage reluctant readers to pick up a book and find some pleasure in reading as an activity. Apparently more than 15% of adults in the UK find reading difficult and believe that books are "scary and intimidating" and "not for them". I think that the authors that get asked each year to participate in the writing of a "Quick Read" do this for charity, and there are some big names behind the books. This year they are Roddy Doyle - Dead Man TalkingJojo Moyes - Paris for Two OneSophie Hannah - Pictures Or It Didn't HappenFanny Blake - Red for RevengeAdèle Geras - Out of the DarkJames Bowen - Street Cat BobI've ordered three of these for when I need a literary "palate cleanser" of sorts, and having thoroughly enjoyed Me before you I started with the Jojo Moyes book on a very snowy, very hungover Sunday afternoon. At about 100 pages, the more "seasoned reader" will read any of these books in one sitting, so in a way they are more like short stories rather than novels. Paris for One was just what the doctor ordered.... for my intellectually incapacitated mind and tired body.... a predictable, fluffy piece of chick lit with lots of unlikely events to move the plot forward and three or four clicheed, two-dimensional characters. I hazard a guess and say that Jojo Moyes spent as long writing this story as it took me to read it. As I said, it was just the right thing for me yesterday, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone - unless I knew someone who was afraid of books and needed something very light to ease them into a reading routine, so Moyes did a good job for "Quick Reads" in that respect.

    So adorable. I don't read a lot of short stories but JoJo Moyes can do no wrong. I loved this little story about Nell who goes to Paris and gets stood up by her shitty boyfriend who ends up showing up half way through the weekend.It seemed like one of those "Murphy's Law" type things, the room she'd booked (she booked the trip later realizing maybe the douchebag never wanted to be serious with her to begin with) and ends up sharing with an American woman who's obviously a bitch.She decides to stay anyway and goes to eat by herself and spills wine on the waiter (i know, it's the gun on the table and he'll be used quite nicely later on)and just when she's accepted, albeit hesitantly, that her life is her life, she runs into said waiter later on and through some serendipitous moment they get together UNTIL THE ASSHAT shows up.But you'll have to read the very quick and lovely story to find out the ending.

    Es corto y dulce. Esperaba algo diferente, pero no esta mal.Nell no me gustó mucho al principio, me hacen falta muchas más páginas para que llegue a agradarme de verdad, Fabien aunque parece ser un chico dulce y agradable no lo conocemos mucho y Pete simplemente es un idiota.Pero es París y París siempre me gana <3

    I finally got to read another Jojo Moyes book again, it’s a short one, but still.Nell is at the train station waiting for her boyfriend to arrive. He’s not going to make it, so she goes to Paris alone. What a fun weekend ahead…It gets worse when she arrives at the hotel and her room is double booked, an American lady book it as well and it’s the last one available. Nell still hopes that her boyfriend turns up, but he cancels.On Saturday morning she tries to go back home, but it’s just too expensive and when she finds two tickets for an exhibition she goes there. It’s where she meets the waiter again. She gives Fabien the second ticket and they spend the day together.Fabien is trying to be an author and he somehow is constantly reminded of his ex-girlfriend.Nell is not sure whether she shall go out with Fabien in the evening, but then she goes for it. It all gets really complicated when her boyfriend turns up. All Nell wants is to be with Fabien. She tries to find him…I loved how free these two were, when they were together. No commitments, no rush, no nothing and I guess that’s what attracted them to each other. And they were able to be themselves.A cute little story, about an adventurous weekend full of freedom, fun and passion. Jojo’s style is fresh and sweet and the story was a real pleasure to read.

    Det er jo nesten skammelig at dette blir utgitt som en roman i Norge. Her er det en skriftstørrelse over det det er i de fleste barnebøker og det er nesten like mange tomme sider som det er sider med skrift. Historien er så tynn at det er umulig for meg å bli dratt med. Selve språket er enkelt som i en ungdomsbok og ingen følelser er troverdige.Dette er mitt første(og mest sannsynlig eneste) forsøk på chick lit, men jeg håper virkelig det finnes bedre bøker innen sjangeren der ute.

    Nell is desperate to spice up her life a little as she's known for being unadventurous. So she books a romantic weekend in Paris for her and her boyfriend. When he lets her down- she decides that she will still have this adventure and meets some interesting people and has a great trip!A great QuickRead.

    I am kinda jealous of Nell because I would trade anything for a weekend in Paris. A cute short read from Jojo Moyes. This time with no tears haha. But my biggest question is will Moyes continue Nell and Fabien's story?! I hope she does because I loved it and I need more of it :))
