Books set in France – Now it’s Easier Than Ever to Find Them!

Image by Simona DumitruJust in time for Bastille Day, Packabook is delighted to announce that you can now find books set in France categorized by regions and cities.

To give it a try, visit the France page, look over to the right and you will see that the fiction category has been divided into several places to choose from, such as the Riviera, the Loire Valley and of course Paris.

As you might expect, the vast majority of books are set in Paris – almost 50 so far. There are books in which Paris is almost a character itself, like Foreign Tongue by Vanina Marsot, and there are classics like Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and George Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London.

If you are looking for something a little lighter, you could try A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke or Blame it on Paris by Laura Florand. And if crime novels are your thing, then most of the wonderful Chief Inspector Adamsberg mysteries are set in Paris.  Just think, with so many to choose from – you could read a book a week and still find yourself in Paris after nearly a year!

We are really keen to build up our selection of novels set OUTSIDE of Paris – so would love to hear your suggestions. Do you know of any books set on the Riviera or in the French countryside that we don’t have listed? Let us know in the comments.

If you don’t mind where in France your next book comes from, then just stick with the general France Fiction category. ALL the books are there, along with those that don’t have a specific location. And please feel free to let us know if we have inadvertently put a book in the wrong category – we are always grateful for you keeping us on our toes in this respect!

That’s it. Get yeself off to France immediately…It’s summertime, the champagne is flowing……

    I know! It’s a terrible chore, having to spend time finding great books. The only problem being it reduces the amount of time available to read them!
