I feel like Paris Echo doesn’t know what kind of a book it wants to be, so it is a few of them bound together: literary fiction and historical fiction with a sprinkle of self-discovery and ghosts. Our main characters are Hannah, a 30-something researching her contribution to a history book, and Tariq, a nineteen-year-old who decided to take a break from his native Morocco. Both of them have issues they’re working on though they don’t know it until they’ve already worked things out. I didn’t find either character to be particularly believable or interesting but the writing style is different from what I usually read – that is what kept reading Paris Echo interesting for me. Ultimately it was an enjoyable read but this probably won’t be a book I’ll remember for very long.
I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
