Marguerite B

Very Good

by Marguerite B on Sep 8, 2014

I really enjoyed the book, but I am not sure I believed all of it. How, for instance, were the two of them able to travel so much and drink so much and hire a caretaker for the baby without either one working?

Hemingway fans - don't miss this!

by Mary M on May 16, 2013

A fictionalized account of Hemingway's first marriage and their life in Paris just before he hit it big. Fascinating! Read A Moveable Feast and compare.

Mary H N

Delightful!

by Mary H N on Feb 15, 2013

I am only 200 pages through the book, but I am enjoying it a lot. It reminds me of the movie "Midnight in Paris".

Barbara K

Not a page turner

by Barbara K on Aug 23, 2012

This book was a good read, but not all that well written or a page turner. I knew most of what McLain wrote already, but still some interesting facts. I would recommend it to those who have not read much about Hemingway.

"The Paris Wife"

by J R on Jul 19, 2012

If you're interested in Hemingway, especially his Paris years, this is a fascinating read.
