Listeners may well find that this is pretty much the most charming audiobook about a home renovation disaster that they can imagine. American cookbook author David Lebovitz decides to buy and renovate an apartment in Paris, and narrator Graham Halstead captures both the horror and the humor as the process spirals wildly out of control. Halstead pronounces copious French words easily and flawlessly as Lebovitz recounts French bureaucracy, contractors who are "pas correct," despairing trips to IKEA, and the steadfastness of his partner, Romain. Mouthwatering recipes are sprinkled throughout the audiobook--read in their entirety, they may seem distracting at first, but they're well integrated into the text and become a welcome respite from the renovation fiascos.
