OMG I'm still wrapping my head around this book. What an amazing story. I had so many emotions reading this book, I grew attached to most of the characters, especially, obviously Evelyn. The writing was brilliant, the way it made me really live in those decades through the pages, the Hollywood scene, the complexity of the characters, everything was just incredible. I'm not great with words, so I'll keep this really short.
“Never let anyone make you feel ordinary.”
Evelyn Hugo, what a complex and great woman, the things she did to go after what she wanted since she was very young, she was determined never really apologizing for who she was and the things she did. The way the author wrote her story is just spectacular.
I think this is one of those books everyone should experience, as mentioned a hundred times before, it's just amazing and I cannot recommend it enough, it definitely will stay with me for a long time.
