Islands in the Stream

by Edward H on Dec 16, 2013

Barely readable even for Hemingway fans. Thomas Hudson is a stoic drunk, grandiose as patrol captain in "At Sea," self-satisfied as barfly in "Cuba," occasional humanistic 3 dimensional father in "Bimini" revealing sensitivity and vulnerability of early Hem persona only rarely. Some descriptive pages worthwhile only if dialogue generally ignored. Entire book would have been more wisely edited to a brief article or short story. All that said, you'll want the book if only to complete your collection.

wonderful - perfect

The book was just perfect. The packaging was the best I've ever experienced. A great deal fo care went into the shipping of this book.

Classic Hemingway

by TJS111 on Sep 18, 2008

When you are required to read Hemingway in college, you're usually between 18 and 22 years of age. I know I did not have a great appreciation for the depth of his talent until much, much later. I think the older you are, the more meaningful and relevant he becomes. The depth of his experience and detail of narrative style is astonishing. "Islands in the Stream" follows the life of an artist, a painter and his family in the Gulf Stream Islands from the boys' teen years in the thirties until World War II. Events are tragic, true to life, heroic and petty, funny and moving. This is a truly great book.
