    This definitive audio collection, read by Stacy Keach, traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain bald language of his first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the 20th century.

    What did you love best about The Short Stories, Volume I?

    I confess that I haven't read anything by Ernest Hemingway since I was forced to do so in high school. My teachers TOLD me what a phenomenal writer he was, but my teenaged self failed to appreciate it. So, fast forward a few years and imagine my utter delight and surprise. His writing is clean, precise, succinct; his stories are still relevant and entertaining. I am now a huge fan and am gobbling up everything I can!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stacy Keach was the perfect choice to narrate this collection. HIs voice was expressive, gritty and hard when required, soft and passionate.

    Summer, 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane. Along with his partner, Chuck Aule, he sets out to find an escaped patient, a murderess named Rachel Solando, as a hurricane bears down upon them.

    But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe's radical approach to psychiatry?

    Barry says: "Outstanding psychological thriller set in the 50s"
    "I highly recommend this book"
    Overall

    Loved it! Kept me guessing to the very end. Dennis Lehane has such a beautiful way with words, he paints vivid pictures. Reading this book was like watching a movie.
