This work is really three books in one, dealing with different phases in the main proponents life. Hemingway takes us effortlessly into this world where manliness is the most important characteristic of any of the participants. The writing is outstanding. There are passages which appear to deal with elements of Hemingways own life. I constantly felt that every word that was needed had been used but that not one of them was spare. Every Hemingway title that I listen to leaves me more in awe of the man's abilities and this is one of the strongest so far. If you have any regard for the english language at any level you owe it to yourself to listen to this.
The narration is excellent. Clear, crisp with enough characterisation to aid with discriminating the parts without veering into caricature.

Bruce Greenwood's reading of this classic Hemingway novel is incredible. I have been listening audio-books for nearly twenty years and this is the best audio presentation I've ever heard. Greenwood's acting talent definitely pays off.
As for the book, its Hemingway, of course its good. I highly recommend listening to this one.

This audiobook was very long and all through it I felt I was getting real value for my money. I love it when an excellent book is so look and when it provides so many memorable moments and this book gave me both.
There were moments that made me laugh and I laughed again when I thought about them later on and there were moments when I was taken aback by the sheer impact of shock and tragedy. A remarkable book. Don't die without hearing it.
