I liked the part - the character when he was in a coma with Hemingway, the remainder was rather whiny and in victimhood so he did not learn that it - life - was a "test" and he wasnt stoic like Hemingway ... but he was all happy and everything as soon as he got a million dollars after his agents 15% as an advance for the book .... cant wait to read it having read this about The Real Ernest Hemingway as italicised in this novel ........

The Paris Wife
The Paris Wife
by Paula McLain
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars What astory, 29 Jun. 2014
This review is from: The Paris Wife (Paperback)
I couldnt put it down .... I have been reading of Hemingway since beginning of year .... biographies, novels, his letters those by others, those by his son, those by his grandson, those by his wives, those about his wives .... this .... well it put a human face to what I have read .... I have read other novels .... but this one .... from Hadley as narrator .... together with diary notes by Hemingway intertwined ..... had me choked at the end .... and all the way through .... wonderful book rather sad to finish it but when I did - I knew that fame comes at a price .... it shows a realist rather than romantic side to the Jazz Age

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All over the place, horrified whilst reading it that I had spent some money on this, and the Gellhorn story starts about half way through, and the end, was wrong too, he did not put the gun his his mouth .... it goes off in tangents ruining the consistency of the writing and reading .... and is quite sensationalist and one wonders if what he writes is true, the is no back up to his assertions that Hemingway was a spy working for the Government either, quite the worst book I have red of late, having red lots of books on Hemingway recently ..... self published I think, as I dont think any publisher would have published ... there are some good points and some good writing but this I believe is lifted from other writers and also quoted from people who spoke to biographers over the years, one hopes the film is better ......
