Lindsay | 459 comments I'm not too far in yet, only to page 62 in my copy. But a paragraph early on hit me hard in the context of some personal struggles I've been having as of late.

Hidaya | 9 comments I had never read a Hemingway before, but it was definitely worthwhile! I finished the book in a less than a week, so you can guess that it was a page-turner for me -although some parts felt quite heavy.
