[Novel] A Moveable Feast (Ernest Hemingway)

A Moveable Feast

It’s interesting to learn more about Ernest Hemingway’s earlier life as a struggling writer in Paris, as well as his relationships with other famous literary personalities, such as Gertrude Stein and  F. Scott Fitzgerald, but as a whole the book is pretty underwhelming. It ends how it starts  — with a whimper, just like real life.

Positive: Negative:
Crisp, straightforward prose Doesn’t offer anything particularly groundbreaking
Likable, interesting characters (or rather people?) As a recollection of mostly disjointed memories, the book has no real plot to speak of
Enlightening on the life on a writer in early 20th century
