1.0 out of 5 stars Ugly book, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sun Also Rises (Paperback)
I've only got to about chapter four, and so far the writing is wonderful, a complete joy.

This is not a review of Hemingway, this is a review of the publisher.

If you enjoy the physical presence of books as well as the words they contain, this edition is going to make you die inside just a little every time you look at it. It is a truly hideous thing, the publisher has even spelled the word available (availible) incorrectly on the back cover.
My recommendation is to look for a different edition. I have actually bought another one just so that I don't have to look at this one again.

Happy reading!

R. J. Davies says:
With respect, reviews SHOULD be a reflection of the work of the author, good, bad or indifferent. If you think Hemingway is an excellent writer and you enjoyed this book, you owe him five stars, regardless of what goofs the publisher is responsible for, or whether the cover is torn or has had coffee spilt on it etc. When you write a book review, you sit in judgement on the craftsmanship of the novelist.

That's write, poor old Ernest is taking a beating in the reviews because so many people dislike this edition!

I think that you have confused 'customer review', with 'book review'. This is the former. There are several versions of this book on Amazon, and it helps to know which is the best one to buy. Because of this review, I am now not going to purchase this particular version.

A coffee spill and a torn cover are things which are not common to each copy of this version, whereas a poor version is something which is common.
