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.
Avid listener. Favorites are stories without war/ gratuitous violence. Nevil Shute: my favorite author: one of his books every other choice.
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
Curious, searching avid reader.
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.
This story inspired me to learn a little more about Hemmingway. I was fascinated by the story and then would do a little research to see if the events were true. I really enjoyed listening to this story.
Say something about yourself!
The person that narrated this book was absolutely PERFECT for the part! I enjoyed every minute of it, even though it was a bit sad and tragic... Glad I read it! Very moving in unexpected ways!
