Earnest Hemmingway is such a household name that everybody thinks he/she must have read Hemmingway at some time or the other. Many won't admit they could have lived so long and not read Hemmingway.
It's hard to believe that there is only one voice reading these stories. Stacy Keach makes these stories come alive because of his mastery of accents and interpretation. Keach's reading makes them seem as fresh as a new day.
Si hoc legere scis nimium eruditionis habes.
Stacy Keach, who I am proud to say I've met when he was playing Ken on "Titus" is an amiable and talented individual. Reading Hemingway, he is absolutely superb. My kids were fascinated by the stories and absorbed by Mr. Keach's telling of it. Truly sublime.
I thought I would try Hemingway because of his reputation. However, I recently watched his bio' on U-tube and found I did not much like him. He is rated the best writer since Shakspear, I guess it's a matter of taste!
I like Stacy
I have multiple interests, including the arts, history and travel.
At the beginning I didn't know if I was listening to one story or a series of short stories. It was several short stories.
Snows of Kilimanjaro is a movie already, and the movie is very slow...
A wonderful collection of short stories! I listened to it while working at my desk, it is an interesting companion to dull and dreary working hours. There are many interesting and varied stories and if you like Hemingway's narratives, and you're like me, you will want to listen to them again and again.
