Wilder's French War Fantasy

My French WhoreMy French Whore by Gene Wilder

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This novelette started of quaint and sweet. The language was simple, but the characters had depth and charm. The story took a turn when the hero began playing himself off as a German spy. It was a little suspenseful, but ultimately still felt like a charming lark. Which is why the abrupt ending was so unnerving for me. I felt like I had been on a happy little carousel ride that ended in the steep drop of a roller coaster.

"My French Whore" was entertaining light reading. It would be a great beach/vacation book, or something to distract on the plane.
