    Stories that deal with in-depth human emotions

    Curiosity led me to read this book. I wanted to know what Mr. Hemingway had written that would earn him both the Nobel prize in literature and the Pulitzer Prize. My conclusion was that the author was able to touch the inner feelings of the hardest hearts. His descriptions of scenes as well as experiences were expressed to the extent I had never read before. Sometimes it was almost uncomfortable with the sharing of human suffering and emotions. His vast knowledge of historical events, the world in general and other languages was amazing!

    dark and for men only

    Hemingway's short stories tend to be dark grapplings with death and cowardice. They also tend to be real page-turners even though the grammar and style are often awkward. Enjoyable because they deal with life head-on and there are few pretensions. Refreshing in the face of so much baloney and posturing in the world of writing.

    I loved the Finca Vigia collection. I'm a huge Hemingway fan to

    I loved the Finca Vigia collection. I'm a huge Hemingway fan to begin with and was always looking for a complete set of his short stories to read. This book covers it. From his classic character Nick Adams stories to the Spanish civil war. Hemingway as well always has as part of his stories drinking/women or in a lot of his stories women always portrayed as evil/food/restaurants etc invloved and I like that. He has a way of drawing you into a story and this began for me from the For whom the bell Tolls and the Sun also rises. Bottom line- you will not be disapointed in this book/great stories from a legend in American writing. A side note- Finca Vigia was Hemingway's home in Cuba for some years and thus the title to the book. DNC.
