    Set in Venice at the close of World War II, Across the River and into the Trees is the bittersweet story of a middle-aged American colonel, scarred by war and in failing health, who finds love with a young Italian countess at the very moment when his life is becoming a physical hardship to him.

    Overall

    I started this book years ago and never finished it. I spotted it on Audible and thought this time I will get to hear what happens. Unfortunately I didn’t. I am a huge fan of Hemingway but this book is awful. I have tried to listen to it 3 times and even though it is read really well and with passion, I have abandoned it once again. Get any of the other Hemingway books as they are brilliant, stay well clear of this one.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    I really don't know who this is aimed at. It makes some interesting points but it's much more about race prejudice than anything else. It was worth listening to and enjoyable but not at all what I expected!
