After sophomore English, many authors spend much effort not writing Hemingway pastiche. Too easy to fall into, damnably hard to do well.
I have been a Harry Turtledove fan since a friend turned me on to the Misplaced Legion series; while I can't abide the inherent military improbability of his Days of Infamy series (too long a rant for this space) I remain a fan. Among his strengths, Turtledove weaves a healthy dose of history into his what-if, enough that Videssos can be read as midrash for Byza

I enjoyed it and thought the idea of Hemmingway hunting U-boats to be a great one.

ترتلدوو برگشت به تاریخ جایگزین دوباره. این یکی در مورد «همینگوی» هست، زمانی که تو کوبا سکونت کرده. این که از نازیها متنفر بود. این که با زنهاش مشکل داشت و خوب تا نمیکرد. و این که دلش میخواست یه زیردریایی آلمانی شکار کنه. خب ترتلدوو همهی اینا رو میذاره کنار هم و یه داستان از توش میکشه بیرون، داستانی که صرفنظر از تاریخجایگزین بودنش، وجه گمانهزن دیگهای نداره. مشکل طبیعیش همونچیزیه که گریبان اکثر تاریخهای جایگزین رو میگیره. علناً ارجاعی به بیرون از خودش داره که باعث میشه د

No teda nič moč...

Tento dlhší literárny útvar má vraj napodobňovať Hamingwayov štýl a zároveň je Ernest hlavnou postavou príbehu, v ktorom vo vodách okolo Kuby loví a potápa ponorky (jednu). Celé je to rozprávané v druhej osobe jednotného čísla. Áno, autor oslovuje sam seba. A navyše je to dosť nuda a takým nejakým divným spôsobom pritiahnuté za vlasy. Nemám nič proti alternatívnej histórii a podobným veciam, ale toto nie. Fakt nie. Radšej sa tomu vyhnite a venujte čas niečomu inému...

Just OK. Doesn't do a lot for me but I can't dump on it either. The most interesting thing is probably the application of obscene as a root for other words - I never knew it could be conjugated into a verb...

3.5 stars for this one. I somehow managed to escape school and college without ever reading Hemingway. I have no idea if this captures his style, but it's an interesting little alt-history story.
