Ernest Hemingway

I hadn't read Hemingway in many years. Reading this book was exactly what my "reading diet" called for at this time! I forgot the simple, short, direct and very satisfying style that he has. Every word is carefully chosen and what's left unsaid is equally important. I really enjoyed this book. It has great themes of coming of age, relationships, and of war. I absolutely love the outdoor life as Hemingway did, and have visited many Michigan places that he writes about in this book. If you have hiked, fished and camped in the north woods, you will enjoy Big Two-Hearted River. This book was chosen to be the first Great Michigan Read.
