683 Things About New Orleans

Customer Reviews:

A great read! Thank you for writing this book.

By Kathleen Murphy - December 19, 2008

I bought this book for a Christmas gift and, after reading through it, I bought another copy for my own bookshelf. It's a great little book about the little known history of New Orleans, its colloquialisms, its food, its legends and famous natives written by a native who clearly loves the city. It is a sure-fire cure for homesickness of a certain New Orleans nature for anyone who calls, has called or will soon call the Crescent City home. It's also great additional reading for the traveler. Easy to read and very informative!

Great Book - and wanting more

By Kathy Carroll - January 13, 2009

Having grown up in Metaire, a suburb of New Orleans, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was informative, entertaining and an easy read. The book was one you could pick up and put down with ease, although once reading, it was hard to put down. The "chapters" of the book are great with the squibs of information separated by a small fleur-de-lis. I believe native New Orleanians, transplants to New Orleans, visitors and those who lived in the Big Easy at one point in their life will enjoy this book. Without a doubt, I recommend this book. I hope Ms. Dalide writes Another 683 Things About New Orleans - I want more.

A taste of home!!!!!

By Chance P. Murphy "Bayou Yankee" - January 8, 2009

I am a native New Orleanian that transplanted to New York in 2001, but my one true love will always be New Orleans. If your from there or have visited, you know what I mean. I received this book from a family member back home that recommended it to me. I was quite curious when I first skimmed through the book and saw that it was written by another transplanted New Orleanian. As I read it, I found myself growing slowly, but surely homesick. I found myself smiling at the things I already knew and enjoying the new things that I was learning. The book truly took me back home. I would recommend this book to every native New Orleanian, be they in the city limits or a thousand miles away, just to remind you of everything that you love about "The City That Care Forgot". It is also the perfect primer for those visiting New Orleans for their first time or their millionth time. The book is worth you money and your time, because it is well written and planned out. Great read.
