outstanding Palin as ever,
This review is from: Hemingway's Chair (Paperback)
"Hemingway's Chair" is one of those 'feel good' books that do not come along that often. Yes I am sure there are greater works of literary fiction but that is not the point at all. Palin is able to transport the reader into the minds and lives of small town and village England. His descriptions are excellent and so evocative and the characterisations are sublime and wonderful. As you read you will discover that as Martin Sproale becomes the very persona of Hemingway, so then does Michael Palin become Martin Sproale.
This book is so good that it deserves many reads. In fact I have read it more than a dozen times and I have lost count of the times i have listened to it on audio cassette. Why isn't it released on CD audio?
I heartily recommend this book.
