Well-written and engaging but I didn't identify enough with Hadley for 4 stars ( )

The "Paris Wife" refers to Hadley Richardson, the first wife of Ernest Hemingway. She met Hemingway in 1920 when she was visiting a friend in Chicago in 1920. This is the bittersweet story of their 5 year marriage, most lived in Paris. The marriage ended shortly before the publication of The Sun Also Rises. A bittersweet story, the book is well written and researched. Highly recommended. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into the lives of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley Richardson. McLain caught the feel of 1920s Paris so perfectly, with all the romance and glamour and also the underside that makes me feel a bit queasy at times. Life with someone as driven and egotistical as Hemingway cannot have been easy, but McLain manages to make me understand why Hadley would have wanted to marry him and why she hung on so long after she absolutely should have been gone. I have had a copy of [b:A Moveable Feast|4631|A Moveable Feast|Ernest Hemingway|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1427463201s/4631.jpg|2459084] for a long time and never gotten to it...this has made me want to read it and get Hemingway's version of what life in 1920s Paris was for him.

There is something special about this time period, when great writers all seemed to converge on one spot, know one another intimately, and have some overwhelming connection despite the fact that some of them could barely afford a garret room and others swam in money. The post WWI exhilaration of living large seemed to envelope them all.

Pauline is the one character in this story that rancors my soul. I had to go online and research her...in hopes that she got what she deserved at the hands of this man. That he passed her off for another woman, and then another, was justice of a sort. She was the most despicable of women, one who cloys in friendship while stealing another's husband.

I am a fan of Hemingway's writing, although I have never thought that I would have had much respect for the man himself. This book did not change my view on that. In the end, Hadley escaped into a good life with a good man, apparently, and Hemingway continued to destroy himself and those around him. Hadley might have been Zelda had she not finally summoned the courage to step away and see what another life might be. I was happy for her. ( )

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.
afegit per Shortride | editaKirkus 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.
afegit per Christa_Josh | editaLibrary Journal, Susanne Wells (Nov 15, 2010)
 
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...
