A deeply evocative story of ambition and betrayal, "The Paris Wife" captures the love affair between two unforgettable people: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley.
  BLTSbraille | Sep 26, 2021 |
My sister and I mailed each other books during lockdown, and this is one she sent that I have been putting off reading. When Romance is an MPG, I'm not likely to read a book. This one surprised me, in how how much I liked it. A lot of that has to do with the main subject matter, which was Hemingway.

I was torn through out the whole book as who I disliked more, Hadley or Ernest. In the end Ernest won that race. Hadley was a product of the day and age she was in. Still, that woman needed to straighten her crown and have a bit more backbone.

Back in April PBS ran a documentary on Hemingway, which I recorded but never got around to watching. I decided to watch it and read this book simultaneously. It was a good fit, in separating out the fact and fiction. However, McLain did a decent job of staying factual. The writing and storytelling were very good, enough so that I might read another book by her if the timing is right.

I have pulled out my copy of [b:A Moveable Feast|46169|A Moveable Feast|Ernest Hemingway|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1532336685l/46169._SY75_.jpg|2459084] and have thrown it on the TBR pile to immerse myself in a bit more of Hemingway. I read it many years ago, but I am sure it was for school and I probably skimmed through it, just to get by enough in class. Another book I received from my sister [b:Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald|15994634|Z A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald|Therese Anne Fowler|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1396815892l/15994634._SX50_.jpg|21763986] has also moved up in the rotation, due to the small bit I learned about her here.

The writing in this novel is beautifully vivid. The author is able to evoke a strong sense of the times, places and people she writes about. I found this book incredibly sad. Love doesn't conquer all...it doesn't even conquer much.

There are many reviewers who found Hadley to be weak, but I disagree. She dealt with her marriage in her own way. She took her vows very seriously. She was a product of a critical and sheltered upbringing, moved to a whirlwind world where multiple-partner relationships were the norm. I'm glad she found her way, and found happiness in her life.

The "Lost Generation" are so dysfunctional, that I really didn't enjoy reading about them. But Paul McLain writes so well that I got caught up in her writing. ( )

Book Club book. Learned about Hemingway - whome I knew nothing about. Interesting and read like a novel. Learned about Paris in the 1920's. ( )

Paula McLain has built “The Paris Wife” around Hadley. Or at least she has planted Hadley in the midst of a lot of famous, ambitious people. The advantage to this technique is that it allows the reader to rub shoulders and bend elbows with celebrated literary types: the stay-at-home way of feeling like the soigné figure on the book cover. The drawback is that Ms. McLain’s Hadley, when not in big-league company that overshadows her, isn’t a subtly drawn character. She’s thick, and not just in physique. She’s slow on the uptake, and she can be a stodgy bore.

Indeed, this book is a more risky affair than its sometimes sugary surface betrays. Taking up the Hemingway story inevitably means comparisons with Papa himself, and McLain courageously draws fire by including interludes written from his perspective: hard-bitten monologues with such lines as "You might as well bring yourself down and make yourself stinking sick with all you do because this is the only world there is." It's not exactly up there with John Cheever's classic parody, but it certainly does the job.

An appealing companion volume to A Moveable Feast, then, but once it's finished, turn back to the original, with its cool, impressionistic prose. It can hardly be said that the least interesting thing about Hemingway is the way he lived his life, but let's not forget that it's his writing that endures.

An imaginative, elegantly written look inside the marriage of Ernest Hemingway and Hadley Richardson.
adicionada por Shortride | editarKirkus Reviews (Jan 15, 2011)
 
Colorful details of the expat life in Jazz Age Paris, combined with the evocative story of the Hemingways' romance, result in a compelling story that will undoubtedly establish McLain as a writer of substance. Highly recommended for all readers of popular fiction.

The Paris Wife, McLain has taken their love story, partially told by Hemingway himself in A Moveable Feast, and fashioned a novel that's impossible to resist. It's all here, and it all feels real...
