Published in 1923 in Paris, they are the precursor of this famous author's literary masterpieces. Each story, distinctively different, demonstrates the versatility of his craftsmanship and the measure of his prodigious mind. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Of course. Surely. Absolutely. It's Hemingway... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Becker | 1/30/2014

    " great stories Short happy life etc "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danni | 1/26/2014

    " Loved it, loved it, loved it! This volume contains most of my favorite stories (The Old Man and the Sea is missing) and a fantastic section of previously unpublished work. "The Train" -- absolutely loved it. I'll be buying this book so I can peruse and re-read bits whenever the spirit moves me. The introduction is written by Hemingway himself with a lovely air of intimate honesty, never maudlin nor sentimental. It sets the tone for a personal and glorious journey through the evolution of a writer as presented in his short stories. Most stories are readable in under an hour, so this book makes a wonderful companion to the sunrise and a cup of hot cocoa. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derry Davis | 1/26/2014

    " You really get a feel for the development of Hemingway as a writer. The earlier stories are a bit more rough but he delivers the stories we all know and love. From Africa to Michigan to Key West, the characters come alive and you feel like you're right in the action with them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Kern | 1/23/2014

    " Worth owning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 1/21/2014

    " The best short stories ever - to me anyway. I don't like his novels at all but I've read these over and over and the stories still impress me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari | 1/19/2014

    " This collection didn't move me like "A Farewell to Arms," especially the bullfighting stories. As a young adult, I was not a huge fan of Hemingway. I thought I should try it again from a more life-experienced perspective. And I rediscovered that Steinbeck is more my style. The overall imprint of the book on me -- existence from one glass of gin to the next. :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taft Babbitt | 1/19/2014

    " i enjoy this for a trip with a quick classic feel but nothing was overly moving to me... yet, i have not read every story within yet... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/14/2014

    " Okay, so Hemingway's stuff is fileld with all sorts of macho, misogynistic crap, but the dude could write. His short stories are brilliant--much better than his novels, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly Stensland-Gilbert | 12/29/2013

    " It's one of those must reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad Tanguay | 12/13/2013

    " Includes all of Hemingway's stories, some of which are must reads no matter your opinion of the writer. The Snows of Kilimanjaro, The Short Happy Life of Francis MacComber, Indian Camp, In Another Country, Big Two-Hearted River Parts I and II, and Cat In The Rain are all classics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 12/8/2013

    " In a world of prolixity and superlatives, the simple sentence is king. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 10/30/2013

    " Hemingway..., pfhh. His short stories are as eventless as his novels. No further reading attempts planned. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Tolen | 9/12/2013

    " Best compilation of Hemingway's short works in one anthology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent | 5/13/2013

    " So many great stories... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 12/26/2012

    " All of Hemingway's short stories/essays in one place! How could it not be awesome?! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 4/20/2012

    " Every story in this book is great. Hemingway is a master of prose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bailey | 2/26/2012

    " I love his stories so far - I can't believe it took me this long to discover him! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Nelk | 2/4/2012

    " If you have ever forgotten what it's like to be a man, just read a few of these. And if you have no idea of what the stereotypical man wants to be, just read a few of these. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey McGrath | 12/19/2011

    " I loathe Hemmingway. Always have. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 11/21/2011

    " Most weren't all that great. A collection of stories, just not a best of collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher | 9/27/2011

    " Amazing collection. Some stories are better than others, but this is a gem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Kern | 8/29/2011

    " Thought I would read a little more Hemingway while I am at it. This was an interesting read. A lot of baggage here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 8/16/2011

    " Hemingway, in his usual fashion, has some salty tales about the events of his life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 6/26/2011

    " Wonderfully vivid & powerful, I am looking forward to re-reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin | 5/9/2011

    " I'm re-reading it in French, so this may take me a while. I know the stories already from reading it in English, and I know I love them. Beautiful, true, poignant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip | 5/3/2011

    " This is another one that could I could use a half star for. Three is too little, but four is too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 4/30/2011

    " Charelton Heston was the reader on this book on tape - well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 3/21/2011

    " Tend to love his short stories more than anything with possible exception of A Moveable Feast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 2/10/2011

    " The only story by Hemingway that I've ever enjoyed. Yep, the man dies at the end (it's Hemingway, so duh), but it was a poignant death, and I almost felt like I understood what being a male hunter was all about for about two minutes or so. Just a lot of truth of who we are as people in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/31/2011

    " Great book, but not as good as Hemingway's other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simeon | 1/27/2011

    " The essence of storytelling. Collection of short stories that contain some perfect pieces and classic tales. Hemingway is the master. A++ "
