International Noir Fiction: Akashic Noir Series: Paris Noir
Jul 19, Nancy rated it really liked it Shelves: Posted at Shelf Inflicted Paris is a wonderful place to visit. I love the city for its grandeur, its palaces, museums, monuments, breathtaking views, restaurants, cafes, its rich culture and history. It is a dynamic, international and happening place.
Being a tourist, however, is not the same as living, working, raising a family, and making friends in another country. If you are young, healthy, strong, flexible, and financially sound, you can probably survive most anywhere. Unlike Delhi Noir , the stories in this collection were all translated from the French language. I wish I had better knowledge of foreign languages, but in the meantime I am thankful for those translators who enable me to read and enjoy a wider variety of literature. It was a fun and worthwhile trip!
Here are the standouts in this collection: One of my favorites. A group of waiters are very concerned about an old jogger who seems to have gone missing and are determined to find him. With help from his journalist friend, he gathers information about a brutal murder of a young girl and interviews an old man who may or may not know something about the crime. Though the stories varied in quality, they were all enjoyable and entertaining. View all 9 comments.
Jun 15, Susan rated it it was amazing. A great mix of stories set around the City of Light. Some stories better than others but was mostly interested in the stories that were set in parts of Paris I visited.

Jul 07, Sarah rated it really liked it. By the end of the book I felt familiar with the denizens of Paris and knowledgeable about the streets and neighborhoods of the city. The stories varied widely in theme and also in quality, but there were a number of really good ones.
The book starts out a little slow with the tale of a prostitute and the chauffeur who tries to save her The Chauffeur then we are treated to a harrowing and very disturbing story of a madwoman and her hostage The Chinese Guy After that we meet a scholarly Arab an By the end of the book I felt familiar with the denizens of Paris and knowledgeable about the streets and neighborhoods of the city. Not all the stories in the book were above par, but the majority of them were entertaining.
I liked how the stories were all originally in French and by French authors. Apr 26, M M rated it liked it. Such a nice name, Aurelien, eh? When the French pronounce it, it sounds exactly like Orleans. At least to my ear. I met a chap called Aurelien once. A student at Rutgers. No, I don't think it's the same as this Masson fellow.
In many ways this is a much better collection of crime shorts than the previous one edited by Maxim Jakubowski, also called Paris Noir. Many of the stories here are really hard noir, brutal and unforgiving in their characterisation and the milieus. Indeed, the stories range into parts of Paris I'd never heard of, although some of them are set in the usual red-light areas of Pigalle.
Chantal Pelletier's The Chinese Guy is disturbing, written from the point of view of a psychotic woman who likes to cook for her victims. The story by Salim Bachi called Big Brother is another one that throws quite a wallop - an erudite Arab man turns out to have hidden depths of violence in him. The one I liked for its twist at the end was Precious by DOA, all about heists and torture and deflecting the reader's attention.
The book is, I've got to say, a nice-time pass. Aug 10, Chris rated it liked it Shelves: From this book you get a glimpse into what was a revelation to me, the French fixation on arrondissements and their uniqueness. All the writers are French so it's a labor of love and you feel the spirit of the city. Of coure the only Arabs as main characters are either terrorists or thieves. It's the usual cast of characters: PI's, Russian thugs, smugglers, corrupt cops, whores, etc.. Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review.

This was my first foray in the Noir series and I'll definitely look into some of the others. What follows is just a brief synopsis of a few of the stories. In "Big Brother" we see an educated Arab and his younger friend contemplate about many obstacles in life. He meets up with an old friend and rekindles an old love.
He finds that while a lot of things have changed, some things never change.
A jogger goes missing in "Revenge of the Waiters. Finally, in "Precious" we see the story of a man getting caught up with some Russians when he tries to return a favor for a friend.

I guess I like my noir with murder, not drug dealers or social commentary I get enough of that on the news. The one story I liked was the one about the police interviewing a suspect after a murder. Other than that, I guess I just did't get this. Very interesting and different stories. Be prepared to read something different in writing styles. I think that the interruptation to English leaves a little to be desired.
Interesting, enjoyable stories of somewhat uneven quality. Faithful to the genre. See all 6 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
