Review of 'The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

HOW can a book be THIS good? I just finished it and already want to read it again. I will be thinking about all of the seemingly small parts of the book that added up to a greater story for days because there were so many. It is everything I want in a book—a deep dive into a character’s thoughts and emotions and desires, a “holy shit???” moment at the end, beautifully descriptive yet not overwhelming writing. And best of all, it offered an extremely complex character who I both loved and felt empathy for but still respected despite some questionable choices. The author did an amazing job at making this character so human. I could incoherently gush forever, but this book just Did It for me and has earned a place in my all-time faves.
