    This book is avant-garde. I'll get that out of the way. It is dreary and wispy. It is smooth and elegant and delicate and it contains a period of rejuvenation in the wilderness. The book appears shallow, but it's not. The aesthetics of the landscapes and cities are smoothly written and there is no garishness in the way of modernity to abrupt the senses from the surreal like, natural state Hemingway draws you into; there are no plastics or synthetics. It is poetic in its use of imagery. It is real, the characters are real, and they are solid, strong, resolute, and firm. This book is a definition of refinement and is sparse in its technicality but not its mysteriousness.

    Goed boek

    Het boek is goed leesbaar en het pakt je vanaf het begin. Ik kon het niet weg leggen en ondanks dat het een studieboek was vond ik het erg leuk om te lezen.

    The first time I read this novel was for a class I was taking in university. Little did I know that I would be studying what was soon to become one of my favourite books of all time. Hemingway is masterful in his presentation of Jake, capturing the nuances he experiences in his journeys as an expat following the war. There is something simply captivating about the understated tone Hemingway takes that really draws you in. Each word is carefully chosen; the real craft is reading what is between the lines themselves. Definitely a must read for understanding the meaning of life an existence, as well as the importance of word choice in writing. Go grab a copy now!
