Evelyn Hugo is a Hollywood icon who has become more comfortable in her middle years and finally decides to reveal the truth about her life filled with scandals and glamor. Monique Grant, an unidentified journalist, is the one most surprised when he chooses Monique. Because she? Because she?
Monique isn’t exactly at her peak. Her husband died, and her professional career is stagnant. Monique, despite not understanding why Evelyn chose Monique to write her biography is determined to make the most of this opportunity to grow her career. Monique is summoned to Evelyn’s lavish apartment and listens with fascination as she tells her story. Evelyn’s story is one of unrelenting ambition, surprising friendship and great forbidden love. It spans her time in Los Angeles from her 1950s arrival.
Monique feels a real connection with the actress. But as Evelyn’s story ends, it becomes obvious that Monique’s life intersects with Monique in a tragic and unreversible manner.
Evelyn seven husbands Hugo (The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo), a Taylor Jenkins book that has over two hundred thousand Goodreads reviews, is a favorite of many. It was not something I planned to read at first. In fact, I did not know that it existed before Goodreads recommended it. However, I saw some reviews and decided it was worth a try.
Monique is a journalist, who works for Vivant, a well-known magazine. However, her work is not valued highly. Her husband just left her, and she is now in a difficult time in her life. She doesn’t have any support, except from her mother, who lives in another area.
Evelyn Hugo is a well-known actress, who has been in Hollywood for most of her career and is now nearly eighty.
Monique’s world takes a 180-degree turn when Evelyn Hugo asks for her biography. It is her true life, from Hollywood to the present.
Monique isn’t sure at first that she wants to do this because she is not a famous person. Monique, however, is an ordinary journalist. He decides to write his biography because it’s a huge opportunity for his future and he can’t miss it.
Monique and Evelyn Hugo meet every day with the goal of completing their projects as quickly as possible. She is fascinated by the way she is able to share her thoughts, stories, and decisions. She is the reason for every marriage and has had a different experience with each husband.
I have been enchanted by the book. T aylor Jenkins’ narrative is just amazing, with no filler pages… A plot that is so well executed, it could easily be made to the big screen.
Evelyn Hugo is my favorite character. His unique and authentic way of being has been what has captured my attention. Her determination to succeed despite not having the same rights as men is something I love about her. As Evelyn says throughout the book, she achieves all that she sets out to, no matter how difficult.
In history, I’ve seen how willing he was to sacrifice his family for his loved ones. It might seem like a normal thing to read, but it’s not. You don’t know how closely it is connected and how much empathy you can feel.
Sometimes, the pain was more than the need for appearances.
Monique on the other hand is a girl who is not as extraordinary as Evelyn. Instead, I would describe her as a flat, simple and common character. She is an honest person, with many problems. You can see her maturing throughout the story. This connection is not made because she does not have as much prominence in the book.
Secondary characters are very important in Evelyn’s story. It is because of them that so many of Evelyns dramas occur. You can sympathize with these characters, as I mentioned before. However, more characters are being added to the story every day.
The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo is an addictive book that’s easy to follow. Some people complain about the translation. I can’t say if that is true, as I only read it in English (The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo). These little niggles don’t do justice to the story.
It’s not predictable, at least not for the most important parts. Evelyn’s constant changes make it hard to look at the pages like there’s no tomorrow.
This play is set in today’s world and the 1950s and it is full of drama, romance, and humor.
The personality and surprises that Evelyn brings to the table is one aspect that impressed me greatly. Evelyn isn’t a woman you see every day on the streets. She knows more than anyone how valuable she is.
Evelyn Hugo is a character that will never be forgotten and that will stay etched in your memory forever.
“Never allow anyone to make you feel normal.”
It discusses taboo topics, such as what happens behind closed doors. It is fascinating to see how celebrities’ lives are described behind the scenes. I am amazed at the difference between what we see in magazines and reality. The book also discusses homophobia and personal problems.
It’s a book that I enjoyed greatly and has taken me back to the 1950s in a way that is unimaginable. T aylor Jenkins’ writing kept me reading until the very last page. It is the drama and twists that make the story so compelling that I couldn’t stop reading.
The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo, one of those books you read without knowing what you’re going to find. And then you fall in love with it.
I learned a lot from this work about the reality Hollywood is. The author captured it beautifully.
