The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a LibraryReads pick and a favorite of several Chandler Library staff members. Read on for one fan’s review of this novel that images the life of a 1950s film actress.
Oh, Taylor Jenkins Reid, you did not disappoint! Evelyn Hugo is a character definitely ahead of her time. While she is not a character that I can say I relate to or even like, I can definitely empathize with her and the choices she made in life.
I am saddened that she really only found true happiness later in life, which unfortunately mirrors the life of many others in her position. I love how this author is able to spin a story with so many details that come together in the end, leaving the reader fully satisfied. - Rosanna (Downtown)
