I liked this book for what it was and didn't take it too seriously. I had just read and loved Bringing Up Bebe and wanted another American in France book. Contrary to some of the other reviews, I enjoyed hearing Callan's opinions. I have to admit, I even threw on a pair of wedge heels and lip gloss (with my otherwise casual denim shorts and ponytail) instead of my normal flip flops on the way to the grocery store. This was just for fun since I am engaged and not seeking a date, and I got complimented by a guy just as soon as I walked through the door. The next day, I made one of the recipes (the chocolate banana one), and my fiancé and I both loved it. I might just listen to it again. It's vacation season, and I am in the mood for light, fun, and even sometimes a little silly.

Jamie Cat Callan makes becoming French easy and comprehensible to the American woman with fun stories, recipes,and study guides at the end of every chapter.
However, it was hard to listen to because of Laura Darrell's voice. Not only did her over-articulation on everything make it grating to my ears, but her slow speech caused her to drone on, which made me want to turn it off.
I didn't, because I liked the material, and instead powered thru by listening at 1.35 x the normal speed. Still annoying but easier to take and at least I made it thru.
