The reader is screechy while speaking in the first person all through the audiobook. ( )

An accurate biographic novel of the life of Zelda Fitzgerald. I couldn't put it down. I kept thinking if only she would have been born fifty years later, what a difference it would have made. If you read this and are interested in learning more about her life, I recommend the biography 'Zelda' by Nancy Milford. ( )

This book was right up my alley being historical fiction. I really loved getting to know Zelda Fitzgerald and her story. Full review here. ( )

Well written and interesting novel told from the view of Zelda. I was drawn in and finished the book in three sittings. A very good read, even from the male perspective. ( )

I liked the start, stalled in the middle and set it aside for a month. I started it back again just as they meet Hemingway. Having read Hemingway's Wife a few months ago, this part was a faster read.

So much of the story is a sad reflection on society at the time...insulin shock treatments and morphine because she want true to her role as a devoted wife, scary.

Scottie went to Vassar and there was just a bit about her in the Quarterly. Her papers are there. What a life. ( )

Though I suspect he has someone out there, he writes to me all the time, and always ends his letters, With dearest love... My letters to him are signed, Devotedly... Even now, when we haven’t shared an address in six years, when he’s probably shining his light on some adoring girl who surely thinks she has saved him, we’re both telling it true. This is what we’ve got at the moment, who we are. It’s not nearly what we once had--the good. I mean--but it’s also not what we once had, meaning the bad.
I rested my head against his shoulder and we watched the sun set, just like you might see in the movies. We’d worked hard to create this lovely, new domestic bliss, and before Gatsby’s publication, right up until the book was printed and put into the hands of both the reading and the reviewing public, it looked as if we might actually succeed. Wait: if I leave it at that, it’ll sound like the novel’s disappointing performance is to blame for the disaster we made of our lives, and that’s not really so. Ernest Hemingway is to blame.
Trouble has lots of forms. There’s financial trouble and marital trouble, there’s trouble with friends and trouble with landlords and trouble with liquor and trouble with the law. Every sort of trouble I can think of, we’ve tried it out--become expert at some of it, even, so much so that I’ve come to wonder whether artists in particular seek out hard times the way flowers turn their faces toward the sun.
Scott and I had a row last weekend and haven’t spoken since--but as we are going to Sylvia Beach’s dinner for James Joyce tonight, I’ll once again have to put on my Mrs. F. Scott costume and try to play nice with him and the other children. Whose life is this, anyway? Only when I’m sweating rivers perfecting my plies in the studio do I feel like a whole and real person.
Scott spent the next several days drafting a story he called ‘The Rich Boy,’ then set it aside and returned to his routine of having cocktails with those very same types.
