Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

by Taylor Jenkins Reid

5 Stars

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was the first book I read last year, and it was a great choice. Ageing and unsociable Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is ready; to tell the truth about her glamourous and notorious life. But when she chooses an unknown magazine reporter named Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astonished than Monique herself. This book goes over the themes of loyalty, betrayal, loss, sacrifice, and tragedy. Despite what the title may imply, it doesn't focus so much on the husbands; but rather on Evelyn herself, where we learn very quickly that there's much more than meets the eye. I would have to say that I didn't just enjoy the book and that I loved it, and I recommend everyone to at least read it once in their life because it was beautiful.
