Wouldn't you use the verb adorer? (In French)

not necessarilly, "adorer" means "to admire".
"I love you" in French is "Je t'aime", "Je t'adore" is weaker.

Yes, I have a few years of highschool French from almost 20 years ago plus some exposure to the language from living in the European French territories (aka the EU).

Seems like the French may be getting rid of verbs entirely. In an article in today's WSJ about French author Michel Dansel's new novel:

"Le Train de Nulle Part," or "The Train to Nowhere." A torrent of adjectives, adverbs, interjections and funky nouns. Also heavy doses of commas, semicolons, colons - and dashes, too. The result, in the words of the publisher, the first-ever French novel without verbs, as well as "brilliant, baroque, and original."

A novel with no action just vitriolic observations of passengers on a train.

"Those women there, probably mothers, bearers of ideas far too voluminous for their brains of modest capacity."

"large dwarf or small giant - a young buck with a gelled mop with ideas, at first glance, shorter than his hair, and not longer than the bristles on a toothbrush, perhaps shorter."

A book with no love (on topic).

Actually, I thought it was the other way around.

I don't know about French, but in English you can admire (respect) someone without loving them. However, if you adore someone, you love them unreservedly.

Also, in English there are several different kinds of love. Brotherly love, erotic love, and "I want what's best for you" kind of love (think parent/child where the parent has to say "no" to the child).

In Klingon:
bang (n.): love, one who is loved
parmaq (n.): love
muSHa' (v.): to love, literally to 'dis-hate'

The french verb 'adorer' would be more aptly applied to Elvis Presely, when used with a person. Je t'aime bien best means 'I love you'.

That's what I meant. The English word "love" can be used to describe several different emotions and reactions which in other languages may have distinct words.

Adorer in French is not used to mean romantic or erotic love.
