A short review for a bunch of short stories!

What I disliked: the racism, the looong short stories with no action and the constant manliness/masculinity. And also this damn iceberg theory/technique Hemingway uses. What if he just wrote some of it when he was drunk and then made people think he wrote it with a deeper meaning??? And we're all being fooled... Just a thought! ;) (I simply got very tired of analyzing and interpreting this book in my English class).

What I liked: that some of these stories actually could be interpreted and were (almost) pretty good...?

I didn't hate it, nor did I like it. So I give this short story collection by Ernest Hemingway a 2 stars rating. Yep, that's it people.
