The Classics Club Spin number came up today and it was 6. That means I am reading A Farewell to Arms between now and July 1. Hemingway is a character in Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald which I am currently reading. I don't like him as a character and I have doubts about liking him as an author, but I guess that is why the Spin is a game of chance.
thats the book I ended up with last time around. Sadly it wasn't a great experience. hope you like it better than I didReplyDelete
Thanks. At the very least I will be able to cross it off the list. That's something. Who knows, maybe it will be better than I expect.Delete
Yeah not a lot of Hemingway love from me either.ReplyDelete
I read A Moveable Feast recently and decided I didn't like Hemingway at all. The writing style was fine - I don't mind sparse, finely honed language...it was the voice behind the style that drove me nuts!!
Good luck though and at least you can say you've read it and can cross it off your list!
I have read A Farewell to Arms; granted, it was long ago, but I remember I enjoyed it. Earlier this year I read For Whom the Bell Tolls, and was so positively surprised by Hemingway (he doesn't exactly seem to be the favourite of majority of book bloggers...) I hope you will enjoy! :)ReplyDelete
