One recent review - 09/10/2005 - of UNDER KILIMANJARO was in The Cleveland Plain Dealer - http://www.plaindealer.com/.

Have any of you read others?

Best

Is Under Kilimanjaro fiction, or is it like True at First Light and a fictional
memoir or something like that?

  I got received the book.  I'm excited to say the least.  The book itself is quite handsome.  The inside covers are a copy of Papa's typed manuscripts with his handwriting over the parts he revised.  I hope to get to it tonight.  I'll give you a report when I'm a good way through or when I've finished it.

  I didn't want to comment on this book until I finished it but after todays reading I had to say a few things.  I like all of Hemingway's work but I can admit when I think the writing doesn't work and that's just my opinion.  I'm not in thw writing business nor am I a Hemingway scholar (except in my mind).  I've read the works Mary published after Papa's death and I can honestly say based on the 1/5 of the book I've read that this is the best of them all.  The style just flows and it moves like the best parts of For Whom the Bell Tolls.  I was reminded of the battle scenes particularly whem Hem describes being blown up.  Not much happens action wise but it's worth it just for the writing.  This work is also infused with some good humor. 

  I hate to gush but I love this book so far.  Who knows two pages from now I may hate it and call it the worst Papa ever published and that Papa's 'How do you like it now, gentlemen?' is better.  I'm just excited about it.  Papa Doble was over yesterday and we watched Keach in his masterful protrayl of Papa.  The Papa mood grows!!!

  I'll keep away from this thread until I finish the book.  Until then enjoy my ever growing and humorless 'You know when...' thread.  Joking.  Finsihing the book will take some time as I'm keeping up with my own writing schedule while I have time off from work.

Ngoma literaly means drum.

http://www.zanzibarmusic.org/Ngoma.htm

" Don't put your hand on my drum. You deaden it. "  said the Hemingway character in UNDER KILIMANJARO. And adds, " I can't drum at all. I'm just not doing any harm. " I can see him now drumming the heartbeat drum for The Queen of the Ngoma!

It's all about the Ngoma for the Baby Jesus! You are going to really like the dance party when you get to it Papa Cosa!!

The old time Indian saying Hemingway would have been familiar with says, "An Indian dancing might die, but he never surrenders! "

Dance on Papa!

Best

Paul

  I'm sorry but I had to put this book down for awhile.  I love Hemingway and this book was wonderful starting out.  Then I started to become annoyed at things.  I plugged on but it got out of control.  Many scenes - in my opinion  - show Papa as a know it all.  I knew he was like this but this book keeps pounding that point home (unintentionally).  So I put it down for now.  I intend to get back to it later with a fresh mind because while reading it alot was going on and I couldn't devote myself to the book.  There were many beautiful passages and its a must for Hem fans but be warned it can get tedious.  But maybe that's me.
