Hemingway was a name I had always known and associated him with some kind of highbrow literature. What I didn't know was that Hemingway writes in such a simple, elegant, sometimes biblical manner, but remains highbrow. This book was so dry, yet so rife with emotion. Hemingway leaves you to decide so much about how you feel without leading you down some path that he has created. "Blow thy bridge, Robert Jordan." That was interesting to me: He never once called the main character by his first name alone. It is consistent throughout which is somewhat hypnotizing.
