I loved this book. About the BS storytelling of her father who went hunting with Ernest Hemingway, his brother. Great hunting stories about improbable situations while hunting. Highly recommended.
I read this years ago and recall only that it was interesting to hear exploits about Hemingway that had nothing to do with his constant philandering.
I'm not a hemingway fan, and i'm only partially enjoying reading this book. i might stop, i haven't decided. what's keeping me sucked in is that the pages and chapters are fairly short and fast paced--each one reliving an adventurous, dangerous tale. something about the style just puts me off though. it's written by ernest hemingway's niece--or rather, ernest hemingway's brother, les's daughter and son-in law. they're writers too and they have distinct styles, but something about it still scream ...more

Talk about capitalizing on a name! Hilary Hemingway is Ernest's brother's daughter, and the book is a supposed discovery into the life of Hilary's father after he dies and leaves her a tape of him telling hunting stories. The writing is full of exaggerated emotion and machismo.
We actually listened to this book on tape while taking a road trip to New Mexico. We enjoyed the book/tape thoroughly and it was a great insight into the adventures of the Hemingway brothers not previously revealed but often hinted to in other accounts of their lives.
Very Interesting Book about the like of a great author. Very enjoyable read
I enjoyed this.
