    Several lessons to be learned from Ernest Hemingway s first wife on how he got his second one 1 If you can t be sweet and submissive at least be lively and rich.2 If you still have post pregnancy weight from a baby your husband didn t really want and have to stay in to look after it, then don t let the lively and rich and better dressed woman come on holiday with you Regularly.3 If you wake up to find that you and your hus

    The Paris Wife made me remember why I love historical fiction so much McLain not only captures the atmosphere, but she does it with striking prose I was not surprised to learn she d published a book of poetry prior to this I just finished this book and I m a little overwhelmed by it, but I ll do my best to form coherent thoughts First of all, I cannot stress enough what an amazing job the author did of capturing the atmosphe

    I ve never been a fan of fictionalized works of authors lives, and the fact that The Paris Wife recounts my favourite author s life during the writing of my favourite book of all time, The Sun Also Rises, antagonized the hell out of me It didn t bode well But I promised my sister I d give it a go she wanted me to read it because we d just read A Moveable Feast together, and she sent me the hardcover that she d read for a recen

    ARC won on Goodreads GiveawayMaybe a reader has to be a Hemingway fan to enjoy this book, but I ve sometimes found the artist interesting even if I don t give a fig for their art Sometimes an author has even given me a new appreciation for someone I was previously ambivalent about This didn t happen here, and I found the prose so flat and uninvolving that I bailed on page 207 It didn t seem worth the time and effort to continue

    Dear Hadley Richardson,I will admit that having just finished this historical novel about your marriage to Ernest Hemingway, I have now googled you and read a wikipedia article about your life I am happy to read that you apparently lived happily ever after with your second husband out of the limelight, and died an old woman at the age of 87.But I just have to say, Hadley, when you were asleep naked in bed with your husband Ernest,

    I was in Grade 8 at school when I read The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway I also read the other few of his books that were on the shelf We didn t have a library in our school the bookshelves lined the back wall of the classroom, and when I close my eyes I can see the shelf where his books lined up The writing was amazing and I was completely captivated by the stories I also remember seeing photographs of the grizzly author with

    3 stars only because I didn t know much about them, so I learned some things.To me, this book felt flat.Like a travel diary with lots of name dropping.We went _____, we met _____ I didn t really feel for Hadley.I didn t really feel for young Ernest.She lost him to another woman.She was better off anyway.Favorite In the epilogue, Hadley, who s moved on with her life, described him as an enigma fine and strong and weak and cruel An inco

    This one just wasn t really my cup of tea The beginning was alright, but after Hadley and Ernest get married I lost interest I really had an issue with Hadley s character and I wasn t sympathetic towards her at all She was such a whiny pushover Now that I think about it I don t know if she was just a product of the times old fashioned and hell bent on staying married even though your husband is a complete prick or just really that patheti

    It was sometimes painful for me to think that to those who followed his life with interest, I was just the early wife, the Paris wife But that was probably vanity, wanting to stand out in a long line of women In truth, it didn t matter what others saw We knew what we had and what it meant, and though so much had happened since for both of us, there was nothing like those years in Paris, after the war Life was painfully pure and simple and g
