It tells the story of a week-long fiesta in Spain, following the story of a man named Jake and his love for a wild woman called Brett Ashley, who can’t be tied down. Jake follows her around everywhere, despite the fact that she leaves him for another man – in many ways, it’s a typical Hemingway story, but it’s told with such eloquence that it feels as original as it was when he first wrote it at the start of his career.
My only quibble is that it’s occasionally difficult to follow who’s speaking, and the dialogue is often bizarre – nevertheless, that’s probably because the characters are drunk for most of the novel, and Hemingway managed to capture the way in which drunks veer from one conversation to another. It’s probably because he was a drunk himself!
The book itself is nicely presented, I'm quite fond of the cover. Nice and slim.
