    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.

    Catherine says: "Hemingway without being TOO Hemingway"
    "It is the Feast of Life!"
    Overall

    I was surprised when read few negative comments here. It looks like some readers were expecting detailed sex scenes while others were irritated by mentioning drinks often.

    I value Papa Hem for his enormous ability to enjoy and capture the life "as is" without unnecessary exaggerations and extremes that some expect from literature (probably due their own boring life experience where nothing real happens).

    In my view he's a teacher who helps us to appreciate life and be happy with its simple artifacts like eating, drinking and loving. He had an extraordinary talent to bring the artistic fragrance of Paris' of 20-th to everybody's life by few simple words that everyone could understand.

    He is a phenomena that had never happened in the US or world's literature before and that will probably never happen again. I am so sorry for the people who can not see the great feelings and aroma of the real life behind his simple (not to be confused with primitive) straight-forward writing.

    Narrator is just as great as the novel: it's like the author reads it himself.
