His own vigorous and adventurous life often formed the background and provided the material for Ernest Hemingway's fiction, the best of which is included in this volume. His tough, taut, highly-individual and inimitable prose style, nurtured from his earliest days as a reporter, was a splendid vehicle for his themes, his visions and his stories. No twentieth-century writer ...more

Having read Hemingway when I was a young man, and enjoyed what I read, I found Across the River and Into the Trees disappointing. Much of the language, of course, is American and leaves a British reader uncertain of meaning, as context frequently doesn’t illuminate. I felt the book was a little flat, to the extent that I didn’t bother to read the whole work. None of the characters grabbed my attention and the story seemed to be meandering and going nowhere. With such a long ‘to read’ list, I fel ...more

For Whom the Bell Tolls / The Snows of Kilimanjaro/Fiesta/The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber/Across the River & into the Trees/The Old Man & the Sea by Ernest Hemingway (Simon and Shuster Inc. 1940)(fiction) is a classic novel set in the Spanish Civil War.

Nice portrayal of guerrilla lifestyle and Spanish civil war.Clash of ideologies between Republicans and Nationalist are well portrayed.

Great, great books are never out of date, the war changes, styles change but humans, not so much.

A few short stories I have read, so I have an opinion about this author. In fact, I am not a fan of this author. The story so far as superficial, without the deeper meanings of the dialogues, narrative action, place and time without credibility. It creates the impression that if you were one of the participants in this story, feel the obvious boredom. I hope this impression will change after reading more books by this author.

A patchy collection. I really enjoyed For Whom the Bell Tolls, Fiesta, Across the River and Into the Trees, (and the short stories the Snows of Kilimanjaro, the Gambler the Nun and the Radio, and Wine of Wyoming, but the Old Man and the Sea and some of the other short stories were a bit meh. Altogether a decent selection of Hemingway, providing some great examples of his Iceberg Theory.

An amazing tale of the human resoluteness and fortitude as reflected in an old fisherman who would not give up fighting till there was nothing left to fight for, for capturing of a gigantic fish all alone for several days marooned literally at sea.

Hemingway's short stories were his best work. I just got a new copy of this for Christmas, and I am reading it again!

I had written a long review and something went wrong in GR when saving the review. I'm not going to write it again.

“For her everything was red, orange, gold-red from the sun on the closed eyes, and it all was that color, all of it, the filling, the possessing, the having, all of that color, all in a blindness of that color."

“There was no wind, and, outside now of the warm air of the cave, heavy with smoke of both tobacco and charcoal, with the odor of cooked rice and meat, saffron, pimentos, and oil, the tarry, wine-spilled smell of the big skin hung beside the door, hung by the neck and all the four legs extended, wine drawn from a plug fitted in one leg, wine that spilled a little onto the earth of the floor, settling the dust smell; out now from the odors of different herbs whose names he did not know that hung in bunches from the ceiling, with long ropes of garlic, away now from the copper-penny, red wine and garlic, horse sweat and man sweat died in the clothing (acrid and gray the man sweat, sweet and sickly the dried brushed-off lather of horse sweat, of the men at the table, Robert Jordan breathed deeply of the clear night air of the mountains that smelled of the pines and of the dew on the grass in the meadow by the stream.” 4 likes
