did not like it
Read in August, 2008

I didn't finish reading this book. I didn't like it...I expected something completely different. I had never read hemmingway before and wanted to give it a try. The book is choppy and hard to follow. I could never figure out the story line or point it was boring and after months and months of forcing myself to read one page at a time I gave up. I am embarrased to say. I gave up.. i disagreed with a lot of the principles he wrote about in the book. And although i realize it is important to have tolerance for other peoples opinions I couldn't bring myself to keep weird for me.

Matt I would recommend The Sun Also Rises as an introduction to Hemingway. That or The Old Man and the Sea. His work from when he was alive is far better than his posthumous works without a shadow of a doubt.
