Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

A book written by: Taylor Jenkins Reid

It took me longer than usual to read this book for the mere fact that I have an extremely busy life day and night. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, though, and found myself staying up late at night to enjoy it by book light, getting in some much needed alone reading time.

So, here it is:

I especially love books that are brutally honest in such a way that it makes the reader react societally, meaning they gasp, or cringe, or judge at first because what they've read is "oh so shockingly unacceptable and outrageous...". Then, the reader realizes she can actually relate, but since whatever it is isn’t a widespread accepted thing she forgot momentarily.

Then, realizing she is in the comfort of her own head, alone with the book’s characters, she allows herself to exhale with relief that she is not alone.

This book does that- it’s refreshing. I think many readers can find at least one moment to really share with the book's characters.

Another feature of this story I loved was the range of emotion it evokes. You will find yourself chuckling, feeling sorry for characters, feeling angry sometimes, then wanting to run to the characters to embrace them in a comforting hug.

Read it. You will enjoy it!

And if you like this book, you will like Seven Evils, which shares many of the same types of humanistic characteristics!
