*NOTE: This and other early reviews were written on a variety of different sites, and were pulled together here. They remain unedited.
I just added a new sidebar graphic showing what book I'm currently reading. When I went to my Library to pull the cover graphic, I noticed I had written a couple very short book reviews that never found their way onto this site. So, in the interest of posting something today, here is a small review of a book I read a couple of months ago:
Hemingway's prose has a rambling sort of poetry to it, similar to many writers of the beat generations. The opening chapters continuously play on certain words over and over in a passage, linking and joing like a chain until it comes across as a stream of memory. Excellent writing, even if the end seems abrupt.
