I have always enjoyed watching Michael Palin documentaries on traveling the planet. In the true style of Michael Palin's mega journeys; a delightful dip into Ernest Hemingways adventures.
Micheal Palin's voice and dry humour never ceases to bring interest to this topic. Being a Hemingway fan is not necessary to enjoy this audiobook, but it adds value to know about the man and his stories.

Where does Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very relaxing and informative insight into the life of a 20th century icon. Very much a personal journey read in an amiable style which so characterises Palin. Learned some new things but probably the best part was the feeling that you are actually there in each location he visits.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure?
It was all memorable, I loved it.
What does Michael Palin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I can't imagine that the experience would be quite the same without Michael reading it. He leaves room for your mind to imagine without intruding.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
It's already a TV series!
Any additional comments?
I couldn't get through this because of the extremely annoying use of background music that just wouldn't fade out and seemed to go on and on and on. It also seemed to be a 'Think of a Theme' travelogue that are so popular these days but also seem to verge on the utterly pointless. Maybe if you're a big Hemmingway fan you'll find something of interest here, otherwise give it a miss.
