Montreal from A to Z: An Alphabetical Guide by Laura Roberts is a collection of blogs by the author describing interesting places in Montreal, and her thought and feelings about these places. The chapters are arranged in alphabetical order and each describes a different place or event or a combination of places and/or events, following the theme of the title of that chapter. The book covers the city of Montreal from all sides and corners, giving an unbiased view of all the interesting places in the city. From restaurants, bookstores, bars, cafes, parks, shopping malls, and historical events, and from uptown places to downtown and everything in between, Montreal from A to Z gives you a 360-degree view of one of Canada's best cities.

Montreal from A to Z: An Alphabetical Guide is not your everyday guidebook; it is instead an interesting descriptive guide to the city. Laura Roberts' love for the city of Montreal comes out in the way she describes even the smallest of things, giving life to all the places and events she writes about and making even what would have been a regular spot extraordinary and interesting. Each chapter is short and sweet, with catchy titles and vivid descriptions written with a subtle touch of humor, making it easy to enjoy the entire book from start to finish. If you live in Montreal or have already visited the city, this book will make you appreciate the city even more. If you have never been to Montreal, after reading this book you will definitely put it on your places-to-visit-before-I-die list.
