Great book, really. I just read it this week and it was superb.
It is now on the list of my top 5 books, for sure. Very Happy
Has anyone else read it? If so, what did you think of it?

I read it some 30 years ago. It was okay; however, it was not my favorite work by Hemingway.

I'm now on Hemingway's To Have and Have Not. It's pretty good so far. It's just his unique writing style that draws me in I guess. Anyway, what's your favorite Hemingway, Sturgis?

For Whom the Bell Tolls
I read this book so long ago I'd dare not comment except to say that I remember enjoying it.

Three favorite Hemingway short stories that I've read recently:
The Undefeated--a bull fighting story way better than you might expect considering the topic.
A Clean Well Lighted Place--
and
The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber--cowardice, bravery, and gender battles.

Hemingway is great. I read The Sun Also Rises a couple years ago. Loved it. Maybe I'll try For Whom The Bell Tolls next.

Okay, finished To Have and Have Not. Great book about not knowing what you've got 'till it's gone and not appreciating what a decent life you have until you screw it up. I'm about 1/3 way through Hemingway's The Old Man and The Sea. It's short though. And kicky, I wanted to buy The Sun Also Rises, but I couldn't find it used at a good price.
I'm now wondering if anyone has read A Farewell To Arms or Death in the Morning.
