This has to be honest to goodness one of the worst pieces of writing I have ever had the misfortune to read On so many levelsFirstly we are supposed to believe this person is a professional journalist Well she may be an author but she's no writer I think the editor just had too much work to do here and gave up Commas semi colons even full stops pose a problem The perspective and the tense chop and change between paragraphs and even sentences There is no coherency anywhere So she can't write But can she tell a story? Nope We are dragged through her ridiculous account of moving to Paris and finding the French oh so
