Last Night in Montreal - Emily St. John Mandel This is not a book you'd read specifically for the love of Montreal. The two big things I learned about the city are: `1)It's extremely cold in the winter.2)The people are fanatical unto absurdity about the "Speak French or get out" campaign.The boyfriend spends a couple of weeks looking for Lilia in Montreal, but other than some street names and mentions of landmarks, there's no real sense of the city itself. I think the author is a good writer and has great potential, but the story and characters needed a lot more fleshing out. The time Lilia spends on the run with her father seems kind of pointless and doesn't have enough detail to be believable.
