I absolutely loved the cover, title and idea of this book and thought that I would enjoy reading it. I realized I had a problem shortly after beginning this book. I just could not get into it. I re-started the book several times and finally had to commit myself to finishing it.

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. He prescribes novels from his floating bookstore on the Seine. Novels meant to mend broken hearts and souls. He uses his intuition in which to prescribe the right book for each person. However, Monsieur Perdu is battling his own demons. He to suffers from heartbreak. He was left by his great love years before with a word of goodbye. The only thing she left behind was a letter, untouched throughout the years.

I could not connect with the characters at all. I wanted to loved this book. Maybe it is just me. I normally prefer to read supernatural, romance and crime. But I saw the cover of this novel and fell in love with it. This is a book that I will add to my shelves just because I will try it again. This is the type of book that you want to keep trying to connect with. I received this book complimentary through Blogging for Books to review.
