It has never occurred to me before, but the autor seems to have been obsessed with physical violence, whether in the form of war, boxing, corrida, hunting ... Which is maybe why I still consider one of the few 'non-violent' stories, A Clean, Well-Lighted Place, the best he's ever written. ( )

One of my very first purchases after I discovered the likes of bookstores such as Borders and B&N. Great writing from a true master. The physical sensation of handling a book – the weight of it, the crispness of the pages, the particular smell... I'll never own an e-reader. ( )

Hemingway expresses it well himself in one of the stories when he describes his alter-ego as writing morbid stories. Maybe not morbid, but they all have such a morose feel to them. It's like listening to hours of music in a minor key, discordant and mournful. He was not a happy camper. There is no joy in any of his stories. Awe sometimes, but never joy. ( )

His best work. This is where his true legacy resides. ( )

This book is certainly a collection that outstrips The First Forty-Nine, but some of the "bonus stories" are fileted from other books instead of being short stories in their own true rights, making this collection a step away from "perfect" or "complete" as the title would indicate. I would get the Everyman Library Collected Stories instead of this for people who really want to dig into Hemingway's short story prowess. ( )
