Reading Garden of Eden feels almost as if you are reading someone's personal diary. A truly exotic, seductive, and dangerous story of a man and his wife, who ultimately invite another woman into their life. The book takes you on a tour of Europe with the vivid descriptions of the towns in which they visit. Although it is fairly easy to foresee how the book will end, it is an exciting read from cover to cover nevertheless.

three way romance
Well, what to say - of course this wasn't finished by Hemingway, of course it is only a part of much longer (intented, at least) work, but still it is beautiful. It captures a moment, in that unique Hemingway style, of a blissful threeway relationship before everything goes sour. It is a fairy tale, all in all, but if you experienced some of that fairy tale things in your own, maybe just for one moment, and if you romantic, and if you like coctails and dreams and european beaches than it is a perfect book for you :)
Publishers Weekly, 1987-08-07 An edited version of a narrative abandoned by the Nobel laureate, The Garden of Eden is about a young American couple in Europe on an extended honeymoon. PW stated that while the manuscript is of scholarly interest, it does not hold up as a ``bona fide Hemingway novel.'' (September) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
