I thought it was pretty interesting. I've never read Hemingway (other than The Old Man and the Sea), but I might try A Movable Feast to read his perspective on his first marriage.

Great book! Very spooky. I didn't really 'get' the ending, though. I don't know that I could explain what was actually happening in the end - the pieces didn't all fit together for me.

John Green
“I thought of my dad telling me that the universe wants to be noticed but what we want is to be noticed by the universe, to have the universe give a shit what happens to us- not the collective idea of sentient life but each of us as individuals.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“There's no such thing as dead languages, only dormant minds.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

John Fowles
“It's like the day you realize dolls are dolls. I pick up my old self and I see it's silly. A toy I've played with too often. It's a little sad, like an old golliwog at the bottom of the cupboard. Innocent and used-up and proud and silly.”
John Fowles, The Collector

“Oh, she missed herself. It felt like she used to miss Abe, when he was at Harvard and then after they broke up. No, deeper than that: the way she sometimes missed her parents when she was a child and had slept over at a friend's. She was homesick for herself, a longing so deep and unanswerable that for a moment it took her breath away.”
Katharine Noel, Halfway House

Salman Rushdie
“...that witchcraft requires no potions, familiar spirits, or magic wands. Language upon a silver tongue affords enchantment enough.”
Salman Rushdie, The Enchantress Of Florence
