Read as a lecture on bull fighting and bull fighters. A very lengthy discourse. i feel much longer than necessary. The discussions with the older lady were an interesting twist. Not by any means my favorite Hemingway book./
A wonderful story about man's inner drive not to give up even when life itself seems hopeless, and you are up against a great challenge.
Wonderful, descriptive writing. There is much about death and about love while telling a war story. Hemingway drags out the story to a great deal and ends it in an exciting, moving way at a much greater pace. A great book to read but tedious for the first half.
Character development is wonderful. It is a very moving story with a very important message. It is a short story that will be read straight through. If you are a Steinbeck lover, this is a must read.
I had read it years ago and now listened to it. I will listed again in the future. There is so much in the book.
atert readers that it is not a story
absolutely--am listening to The Pilot now
not movie material
