Taxi to Paris by Ruth Gogoll ,. Susan Way Translator. I walked up behind her and kissed her between the shoulder blades without kissing her anywhere else.
She yelped with surprise. Then I saw her shiver from head to toe, and a relief of tiny dots covered her skin. She laid her head back. In , though, nobody would print it.

Now reading it for the second time I just loved every page of it. It's a soulfully, elegantly written story of two very interesting, strong-willed ladies who try and succeed to find a way to each other! Forget 50 Shades etc. My interest was captured by this soulful story which is not the "usual" romance. While a quick read, I deliberately slowed down and read thoughtfully almost dreading reaching the end which was how it should be. This would translate to a beautiful movie in black and white of course.
I am grateful that I stumbled across this book and wish more of her work was translated!! A hidden gem that hopefu Forget 50 Shades etc.
A hidden gem that hopefully others will discover. Just discovered her work is available on Amazon. Jul 11, angie rated it it was amazing. Taxi To Paris may be odd because of how the two characters meet and all the non-romantic aspects to their first encounter, yet it becomes a very endearing, even beautiful, odd as the novel moves slowly and it does move slowly, though 'good' slowly from something pedestrian to something special.
There's a lot of conflict, but it's not the standard Harlequin kind of contention where two people act out their dislike because they secretly have feelings for each other. Instead, it's an honest one Taxi To Paris may be odd because of how the two characters meet and all the non-romantic aspects to their first encounter, yet it becomes a very endearing, even beautiful, odd as the novel moves slowly and it does move slowly, though 'good' slowly from something pedestrian to something special.
Instead, it's an honest one, given their circumstances and how difficult it is for both women to trust. It's raw and uncomfortable at times, but oh most definitely a worthwhile read. The fact that both women remain nameless throughout the tale somehow gives Taxi an even more honest, despairing, unflinching feel. In the early stages, the sadness is all about each woman's isolated feelings and the need to eradicate what she feels for someone she can't be with in any kind of way.
The main character, in particular suffers: "If ever a thought of her entered my mind, I hunted it promptly to extinction. And, as with any two people coming together as a possible couple, there's always conflict: "It seemed that there were never two free minutes in which we could just be together calmly and happily. Every time, something unpredictable happened. That situation seemed the most desirable to me at the moment. If I couldn't have her, the difference didn't seem that great.
Ruth Gogoll offers so much struggle and going back and forth that by the end the reader is almost dizzy There's always a risk in romancing the impossible, but here it works, precisely because it isn't romance so much as a very long and very painful journey to love. I guess that sounds so corny, but it's what I get from Taxi To Paris. Ruth Gogoll's novels are all so different from each other except for the four English books in the L As In Love series that that alone makes me want to praise her.
The open and sometimes even awkward emotions also pull me in, though sometimes as if against my will. Unfortunately, none of her newer work a fifth part in the L As In Love collection and the sequel to Forbidden Passion, a horrible title for a great book , has been translated into English. This makes me want to immediately learn German! Claro ejemplo de que el amor cambia a las personas. Hacen falta este tipo de novelas.
