interesting but....2010年4月3日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I live not far from the Seine, so the topic interested me. The book is interesting to a point, but there's really not enough in it to make a whole book, so the author had to stretch. He also tries to apply modern cultural perspectives to the situation--maybe the publisher asked for this--and I don't think it works terribly well. I did learn, however, how this flood happened. There is a mark on the street between the Metro and the Musée D'Orsay showing the high water mark (la crue) of the flood, and it is hard to believe.

This book tells of an interesting times in Paris, January, 1910, when the city was flooded near the Seine. There are nt many books describing this event so I was happy to find this one.

Well written and very interesting. The use of period photos and incident details gave the reader a feel for what it may have been like. Could have had more (and better) maps.
