While dead in the middle of the book I couldn't put it down, because the story was going to explode into a billion pieces at any second with shards of human suffering and want falling feverishly,pitting the characters. But it didn't happen and that was ok, the story held it's own yet when it came to the "End" well I was left empty and wondering and KNOWING that the book wasn't meant to end like that. Too many unresolved lives,  and deaths...I'd appreciate any feedback.

Be Well,

I know what you mean i had the same reaction. When I knew the end of the book was soming i started reading very slowly and waiting to read it because i didn't want it to end. Such an amazing book as soon as I was finished i wanted to discuss it with someone. And the end was heartbreaking for me as well since I knew it wasn't meant to end that way.

I'm so glad someone got back to me eventually. I realize LOTS of people on this site know  a whole lot more than I do about the Author and His Stories but that was a gut feeling which I think is needed in all generations no matter what decade or dementia, just imput. Thanks mlj

same here, i was just sitting in english one day and i didnt have a book so i grabbed one from the back and i just started reading it and couldn't put it down.  The only things I know about Hemingway are what is on the back of the book, but it really was an eloquent story, I'm glad i read it.
