"Heroic bookseller Laurent Letellier comes across an abandoned handbag on a Parisian street. There's nothing in the bag to indicate who it belongs to, although there's all sorts of other things in it. Laurent feels a strong impulse to find the owner and tries to puzzle together who she might be from the contents of the bag. Especially a red notebook with her jottings, which really makes him want to meet her. Without even a name to go on, and only a few of her possessions to help him, how is he to find one woman in a city of millions?"--Amazon.com.… (més)

This sweet little book revolves around a red notebook and the owner of a bookshop which is named Le Cahier Rouge (The Red Notebook). A woman is mugged, her purse stolen, the injuries that she sustained from the mugging causing her to go into a coma. A bookseller finds an abandoned purse the next day and becomes fascinated with the contents of the bag, which include a red Moleskine notebook full of the owners thoughts. He tries to find the owner. The story plays out on a beautiful Parisienne background, on a park where French author Patrick Modiano walks, on sidewalk cafes and tourist hotels. It is a lovely story. On the strength of it I've ordered a book by Patrick Modiano, who is present for an entire scene of the book.

The book was warm, amusing, full of coincidences, replete with talk about books and authors. It was the perfect companion for a day when it was too hot to go outside, for curling up on the sofa and enjoying and finding solace from a book. ( )

Lu d'une traite sans effort.. un peu comme un film au scénario bien ficelé, parfois (souvent ?) simple mais distrayant.

Les personnages sont attachants sans doute le temps de la lecture
L'histoire est sentimentaliste : une agression, un sac à main volé (avec tous ces secrets), le coma d'une doreuse de feuillure... qui parcoure le monde, un libraire qui retrouve le sac... sans nom bien sûr, une enquête de voisinage, deux chats, 1 fille qui sort le bâton de colle, 1 ex mort près de Massoud, une ex... directrice marketing... je t'aime, moi non plus... Ils se sont trouvés, ils s'aiment et ils eurent beaucoup d'enfants. Ahh non !! ils ont entre 40 et 50 ans.

... Ne pas bouder son plaisir et ne pas juger la langue et l'écriture très très très fluide (trop ?). L'intrigue ? ce n'est pas un policier !
Cela se lit tout seul et bien vite... pour l'oublier tout aussi vite peut-être mais en sachant ce dont il s'agit. Lui est collé une étiquette "sentimental" (classé, pesé)
Cela ressemble à du Musso ou du Lévy à lire sur la plage, à la place d'une production Marvel, ou lors d'un trajet TGV ... ou n'importe ou.

Il y a tout de même du très convenu voire du pur marketing :
- passer à côté de l'amour vs passer si près de l'amour...
- tu fais le tour de 10 personnes, ... c'est la 10° qui a la réponse...,
- le choix des prénoms Laurent, Claire, Chloé, Laure, William... Ohhh ces L, M... tout il est doux ;-)

A prendre un petit tour de quelques librairies parisiennes, quelques références d'auteurs, une page Modiano amusante avec les "...", une approche de la comm... pardon des matières littéraires à l'école, du langage sms et de la conso sociétale et "culturelle" des plus jeunes "in".... Sauf Chloé fondue de Mallarmé.

En résumé ? Cela se lit et/ou se consomme. Mais après tout ce n'est pas du Bronté ou du Austen et ce peut-être une étape vers un peu plus large... ou juste par les temps qui courent, faire lire un peu plus, un peu mieux. Il n'y a pas de mal à se faire du bien.

I think I picked this up as a freebie from audible. I have no other explanations. Or maybe...ah...Alex Wyndham. Well, there is that.

I'm willing to debate that this book is full of universal truths. You may call them cliches. I'm willing for you to tell me it's silly, far-fetched, oversimplified and the like.
And I'll say "So?"

It is worth the investment (3.5 rounded down b/c I won't relisten)-it's short and it's really sweet. Why?
This book is like a warm hot cocoa on a cold day. Only you get to snuggle up with Alex Wyndham's narration and a lot of unusual character development in a novella. Is this a case of 'hey, this is all probably saved by the narrator?" Maybe, maybe not. There's something I like about the straightforward truths and universality of this book, and something I love about two deeply sentimental and romantic characters finding each other.

But also, yes, Alex Wyndham. So there. ( )

This was a perfect Valentine's read --- sweet and short and hopelessly romantic in the best Hugh-Grant-movie kind of way. Translated from French and set in Paris, the book opens with the epigraph "There is little but the sublime to help us through the ordinary in life" by Alain. That is exactly what this book does. The story opens late at night with Laure Valadier being mugged and having her handbag stolen, as well as her head injured. After she checks into the hotel across the street (no apt. keys!) for the night on good graces and the promise to pay after she reports the crime, she slips into a coma when she goes to sleep. Meanwhile, the next morning on his way to work in his bookshop Le Cahier Rouge, Laurent Letellier finds an exquisite handbag atop a garbage bin and he picks it up to turn into the police as his good deed for the day. There is no ID, (wallet and phone stolen, of course!) but he is fascinated by its contents (including a red notebook) and the person he imagines the owner to be. When the police attempt is tangled up in bureaucracy (some things are universal, apparently!) Laurent takes the bag back home and decides to search on his own. Egged on by his precocious teen daughter Chloe, he very cleverly begins to assemble clues and determines Laure's identity. Insinuating himself in her life in ways that are tender and caring (not creepy) while she sleeps on, he ultimately returns her things and keeps his own identity secret. When she wakes and discovers her prized possessions intact, she is a little unsettled, but intrigued. Now the mystery is in her hands to solve, with only a first name and the description from her best friend Wilhelm, who met Laurent, but always assumed Laure knew him. The story is quick, but digresses into some meaningful reflection here and there: the idea "that we can pass right by something very important: love, a job, moving to another city or another country. Or another life. 'Pass by' and at the same time be 'so close' that sometimes....we can .... grab little fragments of what might have been. We passed by and we passed so close that something of the experience remains." Treat yourself to this charming story. ( )

I really enjoyed this light and fairly quick book, reminded me of Amelie... someone really should turn this into a film in the same vein. A simple act opens up a whole string of possible routes and maybes, evocatively written and very charming. I am warming more and more to Antoine Laurain. ( )

Up until the day he had started to feel, dimly at first, then more and more clearly, that the man he had become was the absolute opposite of what he really was. Although the dichotomy weighed heavily on him, for a while the money he was earning was compensation enough, but then it could no longer make up for it.
But it wasn't the title that he had heard but an actual question, "Are you nostalgic for what could have been?" posed by a stranger. A question he had answered truthfully: "Yes." And when this random customer had departed with his book, Laurent wondered the man had come in purely to put into words the feeling he was living with.
We talk of "regrets" about the course of our lives, when we are almost certain we have taken the wrong decision; but one can also be enveloped in a sweet and mysterious euphoria, a sort of nostalgia for what might have been.
