loved it. naipaul at his best. he is on hemingways level. not as good as in a free state which in my opinion is his best work. this is still very thought provoking and one of those books that always lingers in the back of your mind. 5 / 5

Very informative and excellent naration

Before having read this book, i mistakenly thought it dealt with themes of suicide. this disapointed me. hemingway is relentless in this book. he is very precise and detailed in his description of the sport. A bullfight is a tragedy. you learn so much about fear and the complexity of bullfighting. i have never seen a bullfight and i believe that all forms of cruelty against animals is wrong. however, after having read this book i find myself very curious to witness this sport to better undertstand this book. this book is relentless. you walk away having taken a great deal of knowledge on the sport. i have not detered from my belief that this sport is babaric but i also feel that i cannot judge this sport before witnessing this first hand. only then will i have an honest opinion on the matter.

I wished this book never ended
