    Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet 28eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness—until she meets Ernest Hemingway and her life changes forever. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group—the fabled “Lost Generation”—that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a book club book. I don't think I would have finished it if it were a printed book. I personally am not a Heminway fan and the foreshadowing is a little heavy in this book. (


    Would you recommend The Paris Wife to your friends? Why or why not?

    if they want a glimpse of what Hemingway's life was like in the early years then yes, but otherwise no, especially if you don't like bull fighting which I detest.


    What three words best describe Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

    Ok but not riveting. Needs to learn Spanish pronunciation.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would rent the DVD so I could skip the bull fighting.
