Review of Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemingway

Green Hills of Africa Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemingway

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Green Hills of Africa is a book about a hunting trip. I mean it. I thought the hunting would provide a backdrop and some framing for the real story within, but I gave up on that about halfway through. So, I just admired the prose and took in the sights. That was enough. I mean that too. Every time I cracked open the book, I was utterly transported to Hemingway’s Africa. I just wish he’d been doing something more interesting than shooting at every damned thing with a horn.
