   Hemingway Complete Works
Ernest Hemingway's widow, Mary, said the writer was "living the dream". I enjoy his clear writing style and engaging characters, Hollingworth said. My husband and I were traveling to Key West and wanted to read some Hemingway before we visited the Ernest Hemingway Museum, but I'm not great at reading through novels. It is a little bulky and the pages are thin, but that is to be expected for a complete works, so I did decide to leave it at home for our trip. This book is not something you will sit down and read straight through unless you are a major Hemingway fan. I suspect one might get bored if they try, since Hemingway tends to stick to the same themes over and over again. It will be great to pick up and read a few stories every now and again. I got this book used, and it was in the condition described, so I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and am glad to have this one on my shelf!
   One of Twenty that should be in Every Home
He puts you not only in the physical space of the story but also lulls your emotions to the required state. Though he is a writer, his stories tend to be slice of life narratives and with no moral takeaways. The book contains 70 stories, ranging from 2 to 30 pages. The largest number of pages is 4,600, which is in the mid-range.
   What more could be said about a classic?
I'm not critiquing Hemingway's short stories, but rather his entire collection of short stories. Some have said the subject can be too harsh for our sensibilities, but that it was his world and times. It's a great read, too. It was recommended to my son. There are just a handful of books by Pulitzer and Nobel winners that you can get your hands on.
   Hemingway was the Master Storyteller
This is a keeper, a collection of bedside tales to fall asleep with, simple, profound, and always soul searching, Hemingway was the master of terseness.
Understand the author's importance to the story. Not a huge fan, but I'm not ashamed to admit it. Two Hearted River is word by word a very good story about fishing and rejuvenation. But without a professor or Hemingway himself proclaiming that is an iceberg story about war, I dont understand how a reader could come to such a conclusion on his own. I just read another Hemingway novel — I am glad he is not my poppa, my close friend said.
   The Turtleback Binding Edition is Very Poor quality.
When the so-called Library edition has text that doesn't align properly with the page edges, you have to imagine what they might have been thinking to sell such poor quality printing. I am returning this volume and won't be buying from Turtleback again.
   Master of Short Stories
To know the man, his short stories are a means of entrance to his muse. In many of the stories he was rough and rugged, but out of nowhere comes a story of a woman who wants to abandon her cat in the rain. They include former fighters and soldiers who offer insight into his experiences. The whole thing ends abruptly. The story has not ended, nor has it been resolved. The reader will be able to contemplate all the possibilities of what did and what will happen as a consequence of the story, as well as the thoughts and desires of the character. When his mind and desires are not in sync, he follows them perhaps to the detriment of the partner. He's a direct and cruel and caring man, the book says.
   and liked it a lot
I read Hemingway's stuff in me, and I'm not ashamed. He didn't care that much, Mr. Rule told the judge. It was a great read, and I'll probably reread it again. Revisited three of his novels, and was impressed by how much better they were. But he may be better suited to a short story.
   The many faces of Hemingway
It's Hemingway, how can you resist? You can see the bones for some of his famous novels in a few of these short stories. The beautifully written, but uninteresting ones make you realize how hard writing a best seller really is.
   Very nice edition, with
Very nice edition, with great stories, too, he said. What a writer, one of the great short story writers of the 20th century.
