A rushed and boring affair
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Sticking with fewer expatriates and providing more information. As it is, the narrator rushes from Paris Street to Paris Street, providing house number and American celebrities who lived in them in the 1920s. It might be useful if one only wishes to wander the streets of Paris and exult "Imagine, so-and-so live there for X months." Maybe that's why it called a "guide". But it left this reader (listener cold)
Has Expatriate Paris turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not necessarily. There doubtless is a way of doing this more engagingly.
What didn’t you like about Robert Blumenfeld’s performance?
It was fairly monotonous and quite rushed.
What character would you cut from Expatriate Paris?
Many of them; but my bias is toward more meaningful biographical information, and clearly this was not the author's intention.
