Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Clough | 8/18/2013

    " I believe this to be Hemingway's best novel. A really great story about a completely dysfunctional love between two people who still somehow completely understand one another. And also bullfighting and drinking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aida | 7/24/2013

    " Don't know is it just mine misjudgement, but I don't find this book worth reading at all. No deep thoughts, no lesson to be learned, just plane conversations. In the other hand, if you are interested in Spain and Pamplona, this is fantastic insight. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Rauber | 6/21/2013

    " What can I say about this that hasn't already been said? A fantastic book. Could really be described as a tragedy, really. A group of friends in post WW1 Paris who have no real ambitions in life except to drink and enjoy themselves travel to Pamplona for the running of the Bulls. Some of them seek love with each other, but are rejected for one reason or another. You can find some reason to love or hate each and every character. I won't soon forget this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie | 6/5/2013

    " feels bad because didn't really get the point but overall enjoyed the whole sensation of the book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hargrove | 2/28/2013

    " Somewhat melancholic... as is numerous other writings of his. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannoncline | 2/26/2013

    " I can see why they were called the "Lost Generation". They drank too much to be able to find their way! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen Baker | 4/30/2012

    " I now know I'm not a fan of the Lost Generation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger Peterson | 6/21/2011

    " I liked it. But I found it more about prewar masculinity and alcoholism than I had remembered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 olaszka | 3/14/2011

    " one of the defining books of my literary education. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/27/2009

    " 3.5 Stars - I've only read one other book by Hemingway (The Moveable Feast). I enjoyed this less, but still found this to be a well written, interesting "read." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Sosa | 2/22/2008

    " A beautiful portrait of an American expatriate living in Paris who is persuaded by his wine hungry friends to take a trip to Pamplona for the bullfights. It's a tight good read. Make sure to have a drink before reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Crowe | 10/14/2006

    " If only I could sit down with HIM for one hour...he is who I would invite to dinner. This exchange reminds me of his short story "A Clean Well Lighted Place"... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robby Bailey | 8/9/2006

    " I read this book when I was in high school and I was told that true literary dudes read Hemingway so I picked this us. Then I was assigned it for class and in reading again I was floored. This book put me in a spell. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharron | 8/14/2005

    " Some books just don't warrant revisiting and this is one of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victor Rodriguez | 9/27/2004

    " I am sucker for bullfighting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alessio | 7/17/2004

    " One of my most beloved books of all time, it seems to talk to me on so many levels that I simply love it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn Brown | 9/13/2003

    " Good book if you're having insomnia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Vaida | 9/14/2000

    " I come back to this novel time and time again. It is like a trusted old friend, and I feel it best illustrates Hemingway's technical strength as a novelist and story teller. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth Brannon warren | 7/1/2000

    " Didn't like the characters, didn't care what happened to them, was irritated that they whined the whole book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 3/23/2000

    " There's so much text about drinking that I had to open a beer to read along with. "
