  • Very Good Sep 8, 2014
    by Marguerite B

    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! May 16, 2013
    by Mary M

    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.

  • Delightful! Feb 15, 2013
    by Mary H N

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

  • Not a page turner Aug 23, 2012
    by Barbara K

    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.

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