Transfers you instantly to Venice,
By A Customer
This review is from: Across The River And Into The Trees (Arrow Classic) (Paperback)
It is miraculous how Hemingway manages to trigger ones imagination with such a simplistic choice of words. From page one onwards one IS in Venice, one IS the colonel and one IS hunting ducks in the cold, crispy morning air. And Hemingway was able to resist stretching the story into one of these 600 page-never-ending-chewing-gum-like books. One is surprised when it's already the last page ... and that's how it should be.
