Ok, I'm a huge Hemingway fan, so when I saw this at a thrift shop for a quarter, I snagged it. Well, when I got over throwing it across the room because it wasn't remotely about Hemingway, I realized it was actually NOT a bad spy story after all. Rather James Bond-ish in style, except that the hero is definitely NOT a Bond wannabe, he's a tough, not really pretty, badass who's a Vietnam vet. "Hemingway" in this book, was a nom de plume of another agent who wrote a secret CIA manual about terrorists. The November Man is on the hunt to reclaim the stolen book & return it to the CIA or destroy it before those secrets get out. Typical of spy stories, there's a ton of plot twists, blowing shit up, yada yada. If you like spy stories, give it a shot. If you are expecting to be about Papa Hemingway, as I was, you're gonna be disappointed, like I was, & then read it anyway. At least it's entertaining ( )
