WCW: Evelyn Hugo

When you’re given an opportunity to change your life, be ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen. The world doesn’t give things, you take things.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Evelyn Hugo is the main character in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Evelyn is a female lead unlike any other. She is unapologetically herself in a time in which women were given very little rights and were expected to be demure and submissive.

Evelyn Hugo is by far one of the most complex and multifaceted characters I have ever come across.

If the definition of enjoying sex means that it is pleasurable, then I’ve had a lot of sex that I didn’t enjoy. But if we’re defining it as being happy to have made the trade, then, well, I haven’t had much I hated.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

She isn’t afraid to go after what she wants and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it. She uses her body, mind, emotions, and any other resources at her disposal to get people to see things her way, although most people seem to think that the idea was originally theirs, such is her talent. This book is ultimately about female empowerment. It’s about the power of sex and how women can wield it as a weapon. It’s about taking your destiny into your own hands and being unapologetic about it.

Evelyn made me reevaluate my role as a women in today’s society. I wanted to do more and be more after I read this book. She stuck with me long after I finished the last page and I often find myself wondering, “What would Evelyn Hugo do?” Now, Evelyn probably wouldn’t care one way or another if you read her story but I’m telling you that you’ll regret it if you don’t.
