Review of A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

A Moveable Feast A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not usually a fan of writing that’s mostly about writers or writing, but I guess Hemingway could pen whatever he damn well pleased and I’d like it. The memoir is full of great sentences. I like sentences, especially that sort. It’s often funny too.

One may need to overlook some repetition, too much for such a short novel. There’s also all of that endless name and place name-dropping. Had I wrote it, I imagine I wouldn’t have recalled half of the streets, and the other half I wouldn’t have bothered to mention — it also would have sucked if I wrote it.

I can’t afford Paris (not that he could at the time either), but who cares? My own experiences likely wouldn’t beat what I lived vicariously through A Moveable Feast.
