Even with the book’s popularity, I know the feeling of wanting to read what’s right for you. Therefore, we will discuss The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo age rating and trigger warnings in this post.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Age Rating

After reading the book, I reckon The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is only appropriate for 15 years old and over. The language and the story are easy to follow. However, you will find dangerous behavior of characters, discrimination, alcohol, nudity, and violence. Despite the aforementioned content, the author uses strong language and curses.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Trigger Warnings

Rita Hayworth as Evelyn Hugo

I was a bit surprised because I didn’t find much information about the trigger or content warnings before I read this book. The characters of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo experience many unfortunate events, and I think the readers deserve to know what they are going into.

Below, I will describe all the warnings without giving away too much of the story.

Domestic Abuse, Physical Abuse

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo explores several relationships, where some of which include domestic and physical abuse. The book’s narrator describes the abuse and explains her feelings about it.

Infidelity, Toxic Relationship

As the title suggests, the book narrator deals with seven husbands, each having a problem, including infidelity and toxic relationship.

Car Accident, Alcohol

A car accident because of a drunk driver is graphicly described, including the state of the car and the people in it. The said accident is a huge part of the story.


More than one character in the book is dying because of cancer. The information about the disease is not described too much.

Death of a Child and Parent

A character in this book must see their child suffer and pass away fairly young.

In another case, a character has to grieve their parent’s loss and learn more about the day their parent passed away.


Determined, a character in this book plans to take their own life away. When their colleague senses it, they decide to let it happen for reasons.


The characters have long discussions about wanting to have a kid, but the pregnancy is only explained shortly.


The book sets in the span of 1950 to 2017. You can expect discrimination against marginalized communities and the discussion around it in the narrator’s past.

There’s also one character in the book that doesn’t believe their partner is able to like more than one gender.

Sexism, Misogyny

The feminist theme is present throughout the book.

The narrator discusses the sexism women face, especially in Hollywood, such as double standards in the industry and objectification of women.

Wrapping Up

So then, is The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo age rating suitable for you?

If it does — and no content will trigger you — I highly recommend the book.

I flew through the pages because I enjoyed the story and the narrative choices.

The book follows Evelyn Hugo from a young age when she started her acting career. She will do anything to get what she wants, including marrying her seven husbands. The book is divided into sections, where each focuses on telling her husband one by one:

  • Poor Ernie Diaz
  • Goddamn Don Adler
  • Gullible Mick Riva
  • Clever Rex North
  • Brilliant, Kindhearted, Tortured Harry Cameron
  • Disappointing Max Girard
  • Agreeable Robert Jamison

You can learn more about Evelyn Hugo and her seven husbands above through the audiobook or the physical book. Check the price of the book here.
