Recommended for: Don't bother

I read most of this fictional story about an American colonel in Venice shortly after WWII, but after a time the dialog was too boring, so I decided to read the last two pages and put it down. As it turned out upon reading the end, the story concluded on a very predictable path.

I would not say that this was one of Hemingway's better novels. By the way, this book was published in 1950, not in 1920 as is shown on the goodreads resource site.
