Hi! Wow I haven’t written for so long! With the work to do as school ended, rowing tournaments, and packing (and laziness), I haven’t been able to write. But now, for the first time in awhile, I will write! Pen to paper! Fingers to keyboard! So, without further ado, here are my five favourite French books!
- Le Petit Nicolas by Rene Goscinny- This is a classic, and though it is generally a little kids book, it helped me learn better the tenses when I was just beginning to learn French. It is a story depicting the daily life of a boy in 1950s France, called Nicolas.
- L’Ordinatueur by Christian Grenier- The title is a play on words of computer (Ordinateur) and Killer (Tueur). It is a mystery about several murders, all related to a computer. This is a substantially harder book to read than Le Petit Nicolas. It is written with very detailed descriptions, many tenses, and many difficult words for intermediate learners.
- Un Monde Sauvage by Xavier-Laurent Petit- This is the best French book I have ever read! The story is very exciting and interesting and has a great flow. It uses many difficult words and many tenses, but it is a great read. It is the story of Felia, a girl living on the border between Russia and China, tries to save a family of tigers from being sold into the black market.
I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I did!
