It was a captive story with complex characters
The narrator for this book is excellent. He really made the book all the more interesting.
The storyline is a little poor. Characters shallow, except the narrator. One would expect more from Hemingway. Reading was excellent & made the book very pleasurable.
The performance was very good, especially the dialogue. The story kept me interested but I sometimes felt like not much had transpired. It's a story about a generation of people who are lost in the world and damaged by the war in one way or another. The writing is great but I kept waiting for something to 'happen'.
Hemingway dialogue is brilliant but it needs a quality actor to pull off nuance and meaning and William Hurt does. And it was good. "Absynthe, waiter."
