Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Ironically, no--and I love the book. I've read "Papa Hemingway" at least twice over the years and loved it. But it begs to be read in its entirety, and not in this drastically pared edition.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
It's a great story--truly one of the best of its kind (personal memoir) of that generation. However, so much of the richness of Hemingway's extraordinary life is lost in this slashed telling.
How could the performance have been better?
Robert Stack did lots of good work in his day--in movies, TV, and radio. But that's the problem, his performance sounds dated and staccato.
Could you see Papa Hemingway being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes, George Clooney as Hemingway--but wait a few years. Aaron Paul as Hotchner--he's ready now.
Any additional comments?
Please redo this one.
A big fan of "Papa Hemingway."

Great stories, but a little bit of s letdown.
I read Hemingway in love first. I felt a lot of repetition because of that.
Also I admire Robert Stack very much but it was difficult to hear some of the story because of the unique quality of his voice.
