This is a book I could have read in one sitting if I didn't have to work & have other responsibilities - darn. I loved everything about this story. I had always "heard" that Hemingway wasn't the nicest of people, but this story, while fiction, painted him with such a soft, sweet heart - I loved it. It also prompted me to read more about him as well as read at least ONE of the stories he penned. I immediately read The Paris Wife after this one and up next is The Old Man & The Sea. You will NOT be disappointed by this book.

I found this story to be a difficult read finish. Erika targets

I found this story to be a difficult read finish. Erika targets a female audience in the 16 to 21 age bracket. If that is you, then perhaps you may enjoy this story.

    Don't waste your time or money on this book. Even at the NOOK book discount, I was disappointed.  I was hoping to gain more insight into Hemingway, but his character is  sadly shallow and underdeveloped in this book.  The protagonist, Mari, is a Cuban American with  21st Century insight and dialogue to match, totally not fitting with the early 1930's Key West in which she is placed.  The writing style is simplistic.   felt that I was reading "Run, Spot. Run."  This story line is tedious.

    Superficial writing and frustrating to read given the lack of at

    Superficial writing and frustrating to read given the lack of attention to the era in which the story is set and the language and accoutrements of the time. For example the video camera, which she says a friend of Hemingway's is taking on-board the boat for a fishing trip, was Nt in existence for another 50 plus years! These  kinds of anachronisms mar the story and the good history that is there. I got so frustrated I didn't finish it.

    Boring

    The fact that the book uses a real character such as Hemingway in a fictional story made it difficult to read. I had to keep reminding my self that it wasn't a true story. I ended up not reading the book, i couldn't get into it.

    Not enough "sample read"

    Interested in reading, but out of 23 "sample pages" there were only 3 pages of the the story!!! I couldn't get ANY kind of a "feel" of the story OR the author.

    Too many plot spoilers ruin the book.
