The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid Book Summary


“If you’re looking for a book to take on holiday this summer, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has got all the glitz and glamour to make it a perfect beach read.” —Bustle

From the New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & the Six—an entrancing and “wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet” (PopSugar) as she reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

“Heartbreaking, yet beautiful” (Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is “Tinseltown drama at its finest” (Redbook): a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it costs—to face the truth.

Something Different for my Collection!I loved the reading experience of this book! The story of Evelyn Hugo & her 7 husbands unfolds in the interview which, in turn, unveils the life and secrets of the main character. I loved being able to really sink my teeth into Evelyn’s life, AND I loved that we really got to see WHO she was throughout her life. Evelyn did change, but the change is so subtle throughout that you barely even notice it. until you’re reflecting on the book. Overall, I really enjoyed this and would not hesitate to reread in the future or recommend to a friend with similar reading taste! 😊.Score: 4/5

Loved the PlotI adored this story, but the writer’s prose was a little off putting for me. Just personal taste. It could have used some more description and flair for the beautiful story. Things seemed to move too fast and I found the descriptions and dialogue choppy at times. Overall, I’d read it again and give it 4.5 stars+ if I could, just not 5..Score: 4/5

Nora Roberts, Genuine Lies 1991The other day I read Nora Roberts, Genuine Lies released in 1991. I had to go back to this book to see if the revelation was the same in both books. It wasn’t, but still….Score: 3/5

A mesmerizing readSo much more than an insight into female love. It’s an insight into the way we think about ourselves and justify the ways we move through life..Score: 5/5

Picked it up last minute in an airport…I finished half of it on a three hour plane ride, it’s that good. As a southern Californian, it was easy to picture myself seeing this unfold on some of the scenery,as a person it made me recognize similar truths. I fell completely in love with this work. I really do wish these characters really had existed though..Score: 5/5

Fascinating!I would have never read this book if it were for a work book club that I figured I join just to change things a bit. I read this book in 3 days. I. COULD. NOT! PUT! THE! BOOK! DOWN!!

Nothing is black and whiteI loved how the main character Evelyn shows us that nothing is ever black and white. No relationship or event and reactions to so are uncomplicated.

IT HAS EVERYTHINGIncredible read. I could not put this book down. No matter your topic of interest, it seems to touch on all of them. Beautiful story of love and hate and humanity. MUST READ!.Score: 5/5

Overrated!I think this book is overrated. Don’t get me wrong the storytelling is exciting about the many lovers of a Hollywood actress. But with all the reviews and hype I read from book recommendations, I was expecting more. I don’t know. I will command the love story in this book is compelling and original. I guess you never really know the true lives of celebrities. It goes to show who manipulates the media to shelter or control their image. Great book but too much overhyped in my opinion..Score: 4/5

Not badIt’s an easy read- the story moves along swiftly and there plot twists and turns to keep you interested. But the writing and character development are lacking subtlety - every trait and thought is spelled out and explained as if the main character’s therapist wrote it. The language is simple, which isn’t necessarily bad. I just didn’t find it memorable. Not something I’d read twice..Score: 3/5

ExceptionalThere is something so beautifully tragic about Evelyn Hugo’s story, so much so that it completely captivated me for 5 hours. Amazing read, thank you..Score: 5/5
