It was never what he had done, but always what he could do. (6)
Air. Fresh air. Clarity for the mind. A pause. Another view. Many things. Many things can be found in a white landscape. The snow hides many secrets. The beginning and the end of everything, there, on the top of Kilimanjaro. Harry knows it now. A little too late.
Wait, it is never too late, you say? Nonsense. Sometimes it is

"No," said the man. "I don't think so. I never have."
"Harry, what are you saying? You're out of your head."
"No. I haven't any head to go out of."
"Don't drink that," she said. "Darling, please don't drink that. We have to do
everything we can."
"You do it," he said. "I'm tired."

There’s an impressive range of work here, from the ambitious title story about a man dying of gangrene while on safari and slipping into and out of consciousness, remembering scenes from his (wasted) ...more
این داستان نکتۀ خواستی برایِ گفتن نداشت، ولی به نظرِ من مهمترین پیامِ همینگوی این بود که خیلی وقت ها انسان ها کلی حرف تو دل دارن واسه گفتن، ولی یا نمیشه گفت و یا فرصت واسه گفتن نیست
داستانِ خوبی بود

Were we talking about mortality?
UPDATE (like… 9 years later): Then I actually read Old Man and the Sea , which was pretty good and has some great stuff in it. Anyway there's that.
My problem with Hemingway is that I truly believe he is no longer relevant in the world of fiction. He was an important stepping stone in American literature, with certain flaws that were mended as de ...more

No I kid, these are some of the delightful stories in this bad boy. I picked it up thinking it would be fun. First time only made it to 37. Walked away for 3 months but my "no book left behind' policy kept nagging me finally attempt Two. Read it in two days and honestly don't care for it at all.

I listened to it three times over. It got better and better each time! Charlton Heston's voice added so much life to the man's arguements with wife and his feelings about what was happening to him.
I like the majority of the stories here. The first one the most, that gave the name of the volume, a well made drama, also the last one, The Short And Happy Life Of Francis Macomber, a funny tale, in wich I was curios how will it end it, and I`m glad that I wasn`t dissapointed by the very good and unexpected choice, indeed.
Solid stuff! ...more
