About the book

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER AND TIKTOK SENSATION SOON TO BE A NETFLIX FILM 'Riveting, heart-wrenching and full of Old Hollywood glamour' BuzzFeed 'This wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet and her tumultuous Tinseltown journey comes with unexpected twists and the most satisfying of drama' PopSugar From the author of Daisy Jones & The Six in which a legendary film actress 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. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a mesmerizing journey through the splendour 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.

Predictable storyline. After a while I got bored of hearing how perfect and beautiful this woman is. An interesting concept, but it lacked depth.

This book was definitely worth the hype! Evelyn Hugo was a great character with a distinctive voice. This reminds me of the Thirteenth Tale, another amazing book with a similar style. I didn't give this a 10 because I felt that the twist at the end was anticlimatic.

Love this way more than I thought I would. The characters felt so real, I kept forgetting that I wasn’t reading a biography of a real person. I cried, got frustrated, gasped out loud, was moved and much more. Definitely worth the hype and it’s even better if you go into it without knowing anything about it.

This book is something out of this world. It’s heartbreaking, breathtaking and boundary burning. Just fantastic story of true love, of real lifelong friendship, hardships of life and the acing and the hurt of loss and fining your true self in the end of this marvelous journey of a strong, daring and always half right/wrong woman, Evelin Hugo and her true love!
