The Masculine Principle

Hemingway’s writing embodies all things masculine including action, commerce, fighting, fishing, hunting, drinking and knowing. Whilst I appreciated his spare, real, gritty and frank style I found myself longing for some balance and some softening around the edges of his stories and perhaps most importantly, some cause for hope.

Eclectic Collection of lesser known gems

A very interesting mix which offers snapshots into Hemingways state of mind at various points in his writing career using lesser known works. Chapters 1,2, 3 and 18 offer a look at his contoversial WW2 service and "Black Ass at the Cross Roads" is either a jawdropping piece of fiction or a record of a war crime/court martial offence? Will we ever know?

It Was a Different Time

I enjoy Hemingway, especially his short stories. Despite solid narration, I struggled to get into this book as I did with In Our Time & Nick Adams stories. And given the time in which they were written, Hemingway occasionally uses racially inappropriate terms. These pejorative words were common in their day & were used in other Hemingway stories. I don’t expect them to be cleaned up for today’s readers or listeners. Still, it was distracting to hear them spoken casually & frequently. I ended up exchanging this title for A Farewell to Arms.

Masterful Story Telling

Hemingway was a master of the short story. Concise and to the point but lacking nothing in his prose. Good production and well read.

Awesome Stories

I really enjoyed both the narrator and the stories my only qualm with this selection was a lack of organization. If instead of entitling each book as Chapter X they used the actual story name it would be easier to seperate which sorry is which because a lot of the stories have similar content. I would still recommend this selection.
