Good story. very interesting story line. fun to listen tp. Hemingway is an artist. The characters were very interesting.
No language censorship. I want the original, audible should label censored content as such.
I love the book, I am upset I paid for a censored narration without any such label. False listing. Ruins the experiance.
If book is censored, label it up front. I only want the original, this isnt publuc broadcast.
Loved the story, the narrative and the performance.
I've never read Hemingway,but now I feel like he's one of my favorites.
What a powerful story
I did enjoy this audiobook, as I though it was a great, engaging novel. But I am writing this review to address the several reviews I have seen here which accuse the publisher of somehow cleaning up or sanitizing the rough language in the original work. This is not true. Hemingway chose to use substitutes for obscenities himself, like actually using the word "obscenity" (e.g. "go obscenity thyself") or terms like "milk of thy father". This version is completely true to the original work!
If this is Hemmingways best work , guess I'm done with him. I think Audible has done a great disservice to the book by calling it unabridged and then censoring profanity! Bad enough that it's written in English, Spanish and French, without the intervention of censorship, to confuse the listener more!
No, once is enough.
The historical perspective and psychology of the characters . . . although both were pretty naive.
Great Story Teller!
It's been done.
I never realized that the Title was actually a poem by John Donne. LOVED the poem!
The book is a well crafted story with developed characters and plot points. But it is a product is it's time. The self-censored dialog in particular sounds silly in an age where pop culture is full of rough street language. And the love scenes written with symbols and poetic language seem juvenile and lacking of sensuality. Still, it is a timeless classic that demonstrates the talents of its' author.
