It was a good story not very well told.

Typos, errors, and inaccuracies bother me; they distract me from the story, tending to make me go back and read again, thinking I had misread. This book contained many of these. For example:

Two farmers on their way to market early in the morning in 1920s France would not be riding on a train (they'd have a cart or wagon), and would not be heading from Monte Carlo out to the countryside but rather the other way around.

A client at a posh hotel in Monte Carlo would not be rudely treated by the front desk because when checking in he was wearing a worn suit. They would treat him like all other clients or they would refuse him service. They also would not give him a shabby room. A hotel like that has no shabby rooms.

And very distracting is when, at the end, one of the two main characters in the book is misnamed. If that was intentional, I can’t imagine what the purpose could have been.

But despite such annoyances, I enjoyed the book. Although the story wasn’t particularly plausible, it was still good fun.

Guess I'm just tired of books that bounce back and forth between different generations.
