The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
by Taylor Jenkins Reid

PBR Review I loved this book. It felt like I was reading the intimate diary of a Hollywood star, glimpsing thoughts and reading about dreams that are meant to be secret. Evelyn, an aging star, decides at age 79, that she wants to tell her story. So she engages a young journalist to write her biography. As the story moves forward, there are big secrets, big scandals, and big personalities revealed. Evelyn had seven husbands, which fits with the notion everyone has of the Hollywood lifestyle. And not to disappoint, these relationships come with baggage. This book has it all. Thereís deceit, sacrifice, ruthlessness, glamour, and fame. Itís perfect womanís fiction. Highly recommend.Back.
Talking Points: This is an entertaining, uplifting book, members will want to share how good it made them feel. It also addresses issues of intimacy and trust and shows human nature at its best and worst. Of course, everyone loves a bit of gossip and this is all about Hollywood, gossip central. If your book club enjoys a light but engaging read, go for this one.
PBR Reader Comments:
Evelyn Hugo has beauty, charm and radiates with confidence. So itís no wonder she goes from the daughter of Cuban immigrants to Hollywood star in no time at all. This captivating story follows her journey as she falls down and gets back up many times over. I loved meeting all her husbands. She didn't always marry for love. Perfect woman's fiction. Highy recommend
