I might start by saying that I would not rate the book the full five stars I have given it, consider it more of a four-and-a-half stars (we might as well round up when it is that close to perfection).

Hemingway was a writer whose novels are hugely important in his canon and also to his identity as a writer, but as this collection of short fiction shows (along with many other collections of short material) he was equally adept in spare short prose. I would even go as far to say that his short stories are immortal, and the sum of their greatness surpasses that of his novels.

'Men Without Women' is a book that does not mislead the reader with it's title. I had read this some time ago and I remember an overwhelmingly masculine presence to the book, and yet, women readers should not be put off by this; there is enough beautiful writing for everyone.

Stand out stories from this collection include a personal favourite; 'The Killers' (COMPLETELY different to the movie versions based off of it, may I say...), as well as the brilliant opener 'The Undefeated' and the blisteringly short dialogue 'Today is Friday'. The only issue I had with the collection is that it jumps between overarching narratives, that of Nick in particular, and it sometimes feels bizarre to jump here and there, to these characters and then to the others, with no indication of sequence or linearity. This is a minor gripe, however. It is not confusing or a deal-breaker, it just means the book doesn't flow as fast as you would expect.

Overall, a must read for any man... and woman.

This book is a classic. Stories like these are the reason for the macho image of Hemingway. High quality literature in short story format is rarer and rarer these days but this is a shining example from a time when it was a flourishing artform

Hemmingway was 'a man's writer', yes, but the manliness, when its dark pasages are probed, is seen to be something of a front. A very different side to the man revealed itself in the post-humously published Garden of Eden, and speculations over the reasons behind his 1961 suicide are of a very 'unmanly' nature.

Still, you would be hard-presed to find any of this 'unmanliness' in this collection (except maybe for the title) - simple, rugged stories of fishing and hunting and the like. Hemmingway was one of the best short story writers and this collection is pretty much flawless.

The work of a genius. These short stories are all masterpieces, often imitated but never equalled. Their simplicity belies the effort Papa put into creating them. How does he get away with the repetition of words and phrases? I have no idea, but it always works for me.

His books are very male oriented and self centred. Detailed paragraphs are very sensitive but something of an indulgence. I now find the writing rather turgid in parts. In the past I felt I was missing something from the page, now I do not belive that to be the case. I am glad I have time to read but would not choose Heminway a third time.

Hemingway is deservedly world famous and illiterates like the previous reviewer will never change that. He was never as brave as he made out, never as drunk or licentious as he would have us believe, but he believed wholeheartedly in the value of writing and dedicated his life to the art. Perhaps an even better short story writer than a novelist. He is a "man's writer" and all men could gain from him.
