Reviews


(5 stars)

A monument undertaking by Tatiana Chichila. Fascinating range of stories from the impact of the Franco Prussian War to everyday events in late 19th century France. A single reader made listening a pleasure. Amusing to hear the improvement in French pronunciation as the many stories progressed. It gave me weeks of pleasure.


(1 stars)

I tried listening, but the narrator is too fast and emotionless

amazing collection


(4.5 stars)

read by a wonderfully clear reader.
