    Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft.

    The narrator was superb. A great listening experience.

    The book's goal is to refresh knowledge we've forgotten, make new discoveries, and exercise modes of thinking that are ordinarily neglected once our school days are behind us. Offering an escape from the daily grind to contemplate higher things, The Intellectual Devotional is a great way to awaken in the morning or to revitalize one's mind before retiring in the evening.

    Overall

    Some books when read are great to listen to. This book discusses famous authors and famous composers. I was very annoyed that there were no examples or passages of the work discussed. If you are going to talk about what a great writer Hemingway was, then how about hearing a few sentences from his work? The same for Beethoven. The revelations about him and praising of his genius did not include even a melody. All in all, a disappointment.
