I spy with my little eye... a new meeting of the DLBC.

The DLBC (Dubai Ladies Book Club) is back! Tonight we will be discussing "The Paris Wife" by Sarah Mc Lain. The book is a write-up of Hemingway's first wife Hadley Richarson experience leaving with the charismatic yet unstable author. The story takes place in the 1920's and takes the reader to Chicago, Paris, but also Toronto, Milan, Cologne, Pamplona... through the adventures and difficulties of the couple. I enjoyed the story as it echoed with one of my experiences but the writing was to contemplative and descriptive for my taste. This last point could easily be explained by the fact that the main character has a very, very passive role.
My favourite quote? "Still, I don't trust a man I haven't seen tight." in Hemingway's mouth.
I am looking forward to hear what the ladies thought of it.
