…The Seven Husabands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This one took my awhile to get through. I am not entirely sure why. I am also not quite sure if I liked it or not. It was definitely an interesting view of Hollywood past and what it was to be a man in Hollywood versus a woman. What are you willing to do to achieve your dreams? Well, Evelyn Hugo was willing to do whatever it took. I admire that and it makes me a bit sad. For most the book she says she only got her success because she is a ‘bombshell’ but also spend a lot of her time trying to prove her talent too. Her talent is in her drive to succeed and she did in all areas of her life for the time her character lived in. She did the best she could with the cards she was dealt which is really all we can do. It was a bit predictable and you all know how I hate the obvious breast cancer death story line. Wasn’t entirely my cup of tea but didn’t hate it either. The narrator was also very good.
