Love and Ruin review Ù 3 The bestselling author of  The Paris Wife returns to the subject of Ernest Hemingway in a novel about his passionate stormy marriage to Martha Gellhorn a fiercely independent ambitious young woman who would become one of the greatest war correspondents of the twentieth century   In 1937 twenty eight year old Martha travels alone to Madrid to report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War. When I first started this although I enjoyed the history of the Spanish Civil War I wasn t all too sure I would like this The writing seemed somewhat emotionless matter of fact pragmaticbut then something changed I found Martha fascinating and the descriptions of Cuba were gorgeous and I settles into this novel So much history is covered Gelhorn determined to be everywhere and chronicle everything all the while dealing with Hemingway and his mood changesand trying to write her own bookThis was a read with Angela and Esil and these are just some thoughts I posted during our discussionHemingway was in many ways his own worst enemy He was bipolar his drinking didn t help and he honestly could not be alone He washowever a talented man and did his best to love his sons Martha was amazing such drive all the places and battles she personally saw and wrote about Glad she had the guts and fortitude to leave him though she did love him McClain did a great job here detailing her inner struggle to be something for herself Hemingway woukd have sucked her dry She was the only wife who would leave himThe author note was wonderful and how much she admired Martha shone through So I ended up liking this than I thought I would and enjoyed watching Martha gain confidence and come into her ownARC from NetgalleyFound this picture The Vampyre And Other Tales of the Macabre report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War.

review Love and Ruin

Love and Ruin review Ù 3 And becomes drawn to the stories of ordinary people caught in devastating conflict She also finds herself unexpectedly and uncontrollably falling in love with Hemingway a man already on his way to becoming a legend In the shadow of the impending Second World War and set against the tumultuous backdrops of Madrid Finland China Key West and especially Cuba where Martha and Ernest make their home. Love and Ruin by Paula McClain is a 2018 Ballantine Books publication Vivid and pulsing with atmosphere but a very challenging read Wow Paula McClain can really draw a person into a specific time zone and leave them mesmerized by the political climate the danger the romance and larger than life characters the book is centered around I loved The Paris Wife the fictional account of Hemingway and his first wife The suspense in TPW was on a personal and emotional level But with Martha Marty Gelhorn the tension comes from a variety of circumstances but emotion is pretty far down on the list Marty was an author and journalist in her own right She was a well known and respected war correspondent covering the Spanish Civil War Falling in love with Ernest Hemingway a married man was not on her agenda but nevertheless she embarks on a long and tumultuous affair with him and eventually he leaves his second wife Pauline marrying Martha almost immediately after the divorce was final This book chronicles Marty s life during her Hemingway years from their first meeting to all the adventures they experienced and survived together to their marriage and the eventual breakup The author did an amazing job of recreating the atmosphere of pre world war two the Spanish War the many places in which Marty traveled to and of course Hemingway s Key West and the home Marty and Hemingway purchased and renovated in Cuba She also created interwoven textures between Hemingway and Martha s struggle with her status as his lover not his wife and her own ambitions The book covers the time frame in which Hemingway wrote and published For Whom the Bell Tolls and the way the success of that novel forced a wedge between them However the book as comprehensive as it needed to be was a real challenge for me at times I loved the history and felt the relationship development was very well done and realistic But Hemingway could be so disagreeable and downright mean I didn t care for Marty either on a personal level disliking the way she acuiesced to Hemingway at times and her apathy towards breaking up his marriage So despite all the rich details and the lush dangerous atmosphere the novel captured so vividlyI often felt irritable with the characters While this may be a fictionalized accounting of events you still can t totally rewrite history or make the characters likeable if they really aren t Still Hemingway warts and all is such an intriguing person to characterize and Marty who held her own against his rising popularity in the literary world perhaps threatened his ego than anyone else he was romantically associated with Yet she did struggle internally with her role as his lover and wife a common conflict as her career dueled against the typical role for women and eventually forced Marty into a fateful decision I admired Marty s journalism career and her bravery however and believe she was a trailblazer influencing war correspondence for many years The book is interesting but on an emotional level it didn t uite grab me in the same way The Paris Wife did Still this a worthy fictional accounting of Martha and Ernest Hemingway and is informative and even thought provoking 35 stars Adventures of a Bird-Shit Foreigner read Wow Paula McClain can Married To The Demon King really draw a person into a specific time zone and leave them mesmerized by the
