This is a review of the audio book edition of Ernest Hemingway’s classic “To Have And Have Not”, read by actor Will Patton, who starred in “The Rapture”. Patton’s reading style is laconic and laid-back, so laid-back that when I played the discs in my car I almost fell asleep at the wheel!

As far as the writing, well, this is Papa’s pulpiest work, filled with gun battles, swarthy villains and more Cuban rum swilled than on a scratchy old calypso record. Skip the audio discs, read the book instead.
