Hemingway's Boat by Paul Hendrickson
Melinda’s first review of the year
it was ok
Having read most of Hemingway's novels and many Hemingway biographies, and being a fellow lover of the water, I was eager to read Hemingway's Boat. However, the book jumped around a lot and seemed to focus on gossipy, negative sensationalism. It almost felt like more of a biography of Gregory than of Ernest and it seemed to want to blame someone for the tragic events at the end of both Hemingways' lives.

really liked it
I've walked in the footsteps of many of the "illustrious figures" featured in this book. Yet I also discovered many future additions to my strolls as well as new routes both direct and circuitous. I knew I'd love this book from the moment I read the first paragraph of the introduction. In fact, I shared it with a couple of friends with whom I've had the pleasure of helping discover/fall in love with Paris. One even questioned, "Are you sure YOU d ...more
