it was amazing
Read in March, 2003

What can I say? I love Hemingway... I love his deceptively simple writing style in which very little is said, but very much is expressed. I love that he writes on two levels... the painfully simple story he appears to tell and the incredibly complex one he is actually sharing. I love that so much of his work is autobiographical.

If you are not a person who is willing or able to read between the lines or put the pieces of a puzzle together, Hemingway will seem like oddly simplistic literature. On the other hand, if you are skillful in literary analysis, you will be amazed that he was brazen enough to write what he did.

Some of my favorites from this book are: "Hills Like White Elephants," "Cat in the Rain," "Up in Michigan," and "Big Two-Hearted River: Part II," among others.
