I loved "A Moveable Feast" Hemingway's reflection on this time in Paris with his first wife. Unfortunately this revisionist story lacked a feeling of authenticity. I imagined Hadley having much more depth than this fictionalized version portrays. The story just did not work for me.
The reader's tone was soothing.
I enjoyed knowing that this was a fact based story.
she was able to pronounce the french words beautifully were as I would have had to skip over them.
When reading dialogue she had great intonation and rhythm. I felt like I was listening to people from the 1920's ,
no. I wanted to savor it.

Interesting character development and portrayal in this historical fiction piece. As in life, parts of this story get protracted and a little dull. As well, there are some wonderful parts!
It was exactly what I thought it would be and more.
I love Hemingway and the the way the story was told about him from Hadley's experience.
True to the lives of them both.
I very much liked the beginning of it but I did not finish the book. There is a point (where I have seen through multiple reviews) where one loses interest and doesn't care any more about the main character. I got hit by this spot too.
yes: close your eyes and the colors and descriptions make for a wonderful being-there experience
The insight into the artist-life in Paris in the 1920's
The introduction to the personage of Earnest Hemmingway in a very intimate manner
no! it was great to have time to mull over the different parts of the story and let them be part of my life
Well written and performed about a fascinating time in American/European history with tidbits about famous artists of that era. Too bad audible books aren't accompanied by photos that would deepen the experience.
I've read a lot of Hemingway, but having his stories re-told from a woman's perspective was brilliant.
I enjoyed reading about post WWI life in Europe. Even though this is a work of fiction,
I felt that I learned much about Ernest Hemingway and the writers of that era.
Unlikely, as there are so many others to read.
I would like to have dinner with Hadley,s second husband.
