We just saw the movie and recently visited Key West where we toured Hemingway's home. "To Have and Have Not" was discussed during the tour so we thought we would reread (hear) a book we read in high school. Great listen -- colorful characters and a visit to history we have long forgotten. A little uncomfortable at the beginning with descriptions of African-Americans and terms we do not hear today.
Recommend this highly.
We have read many titles from Audible.com and thoroughly enjoyed them all. EXCEPT THIS ONE. The review drew us to the book but it was a very tedious listen. Don't waste your time with this one.
We have read (and heard) other DeMille books so looked forward to hearing this one. Unfortunately, he rambles and just rehashes the headlines and news stories from the papers.
Don't bother with this one. Sorry.
