Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

The novel “Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” begins when Monique, a journalist in her thirties, gets a proposal to interview the eponymous actress Evelyn Hugo. The only condition is that Monique does not publish her interview with the actress before the star’s death. The actress had seven husbands in her life, and this makes fans around the world wonder: why? Who was the greatest love of her life? Monique learns everything during their conversations…
The wisdom that flows from this novel is not to give up and just follow your dreams. In Evelyn’s case, the price sometimes seemed too high, but she faced bravely the challenges life put in her way. She is an example of a person who is afraid of many things, but has the strength to reach to the top. As a result, the world began to love her, and no one knew the real Evelyn. The greatest advantage of the novel is the well-created main character with a tough, uncompromising character, striving to achieve her goals and defending her loved ones at the same time. Each subsequent divorce or scandal is really nothing surprising.
Although Evelyn Hugo is a fictional character, her colorful personality captivates the readers and takes them into the world of Hollywood. Her charisma and temperament attracts, although not everyone will like her. It is a brutal and honest representation of the determination of a woman who wants to achieve everything. Knowing her entire history, it is not easy to judge her unequivocally.
I would love to see the screening of “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” because the novel itself reads as if you were watching a movie. This story could have happened… It probably did happen in a slightly different configuration…

This book will undoubtedly delight fans of old cinema, when films followed different rules. It is a lot of fun to look “behind the scenes” into this life spent in the spotlight.
