Recension

"[A] tale sure to appeal to fans of women's fiction."

-- "Library Journal"

"Expertly captures the hothouse nature of Hollywood...The story is fresh, and the end reveal is worth the wait."

-- "Historical Novel Society"

"Fascinating, emotional, and will be hard to put down."

-- "Associated Press"

"Reid transports readers back to Hollywood's heyday with a heroine in the likes of--but more intriguing than--Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Katherine Hepburn. Yes, Evelyn Hugo is the glamorous idol you admire...Her life's story is heartbreaking, yet beautiful, and will keep readers captivated."

-- "Us Weekly"

"Speaks to the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor in us all."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"This audiobook and its ensemble of narrators bring mid-twentieth-century Hollywood to life. Stand-out performer Alma Cuervo, portraying the title character, Evelyn, excels in her understanding of the reclusive washed-up starlet. Desperation, anger, and love have all been part of Evelyn's life, and Cuervo's performance delivers them all. Robin Miles captures the vulnerability of Monique Grant...Julia Whelan, in a sly, catty tone, voices the sounds bites of the tabloids that dogged Evelyn throughout her life...The story is one of pure triumph and tragedy--an absolute must for fans of Old Hollywood. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award."

-- "AudioFile"

"Tinseltown drama at its finest."

-- "Redbook"

"Wow! What a book!...This is an all-out winner! You'll stay hooked until the very last page, as the amazing, thought-provoking ending will leave you wondering, what would I have done?"

-- "RT Book Reviews (41/2 stars, Top Pick!)"

Wow! Where do I start with this book! I enjoyed EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! It was hard to put down and when I did I couldn’t wait to pick it back up again!

An historical love story with a bisexual narrator, a famous old Hollywood actress, and all of her seven marriages. It tells the story of Evelyn, who wants to be famous, who learns early on in life that to get what she wants she has to play the part in every sense of the word. Now in her seventies Evelyn wants to share her life story with journalist Monique who has been personally picked by Evelyn. A tell all memoir about her life and her rise to fame. The glitz and glam of old Hollywood, the manipulation, the scandal, Hollywood cover ups, having to conform to society norms of the time and what it meant to be gay/bisexual during that time period.

It felt like non fiction. Like I was reading about Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. Everything was so detailed. All the characters felt so real. Evelyn is flawed, ambitious and strong. A completely unapologetic character, manipulative and selfish who I loved! There are times she will frustrate you as a reader, but she is compelling and unforgettable! And with each husband she captivated me more with her spell.

The real reason for Evelyn picking Monique is intriguing and kept me hooked in the present day story telling. Evelyn’s rollercoaster life flows chronologically over the years and covers topics such as LGBTQ+ rights, diversity, female empowerment, sexuality, found family, motherhood and love. It is as much a story about Evelyn as it is about Harry and Celia’s life too. These two characters completely had my heart. I went on as much of an emotional journey with them as I did with Evelyn.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is without a doubt, a fantastic story teller. The way she writes her characters and their lives is addictive and very special.

Enough of my gushing. Remember. Life is short. Life is precious. Live life without regret. Hold loved ones tightly. Love who you love. Make memories to last a life time. Laugh. But most of all be unapologetically you! Always! ❤️
