    First of all A LOUD HUZZAH AND A BIG HURRAH ! for the Leominster Public Library for be able to get this book from a Library in Orono, Maine.

Its about politics.Canadian.Quebecan Politics. this book"The French Kiss" is a definite good reada hootally.e machinations foisted on the ele [...]

    Although she did not intend for this book to develop the background as the why the Liberal Party crashed and burned, Hebert's knowledge of Canadian politics did just that for me! With jems like, "On January 23, 2006, every sovereignist chicken came home to roost--in Stephen Harper's hen house," (50)I couldn't help but enjoy Hebert's commentary on Harper's rise in Quebec in the 2006 election. Even though the NDP took over, I think that Hebert's book was an excellent read for anyone interested in [...]

    Interesting book. Like so many, it gets dated quickly. The history is good; the predictions are, well, who could've seen the last six years in politics? (Although the section on how the Conservative government will mean the end of pork-barrel politics because Quebec has no taste for it was, well, optimistic to say the least.) Ms. Hebert absolutely knows her stuff, and the insight into both Quebec attitudes and the unofficial Alberta-Quebec coalitions of the past explained so much to me.Also, if [...]

    For those millennials who were in high school and college while this part of Canadian political history unfolded around them, unawares and not yet part of the vote, this is a perfect fill for the gaps. I have so much respect for a non-partisan political writer in this day and age. This book fostered more understanding in me than most of my high school education. I would love to see literature like this used and referenced in the Canadian education system. Thank you Chantal, please keep writing!! [...]

    A most interesting read almost 10 years after publication, inspired by the 2006 federal election that ended the Liberal party's "Natural Governing Party" rule, and in view of political changes that have occurred since then. I was motivated to read this book after reading Hebert's new book "The Morning After: the 1995 Referendum and the Day That Almost Was". This book provides some interesting analysis and background to current politics, which is very relevant in what is a federal election year.

    It wasn't bad, but I should have read it before Harper got his majority and the NDP swept Quebec in the last federal election. The Liberals come across as a pretty dysfunctional party. So Harper's blind date with Quebec is not so much about what he's done right, but how much his opponents could not get their act together.
