3.5-ish This is such an odd story, and I think I'll have to re-read it and try to interpret it again, see if I pick up something new. My rating of it will probably change. He really leaves you to make your own assumptions about everything and is very scarce with offering context. But the story did amuse me on multiple occasions and I really was intrigued by the portrayal of American men in it.

reading this short story by Hemingway gives you another chance to know that this guy knew the ways of writing in offbeat levels that differentiate and create distinction among his pattern of using precision and iceberg theory in all those works.
here, this story tackles more personal issues where we come across as reading it with people whom we believe that are repeating themselves but are actually being different entities where it bears similarities with writer's own way of suicide.
