Customer Review

on 20 November 2012
Memories of boyhood, the regrets of old men, men at war, men and women: this famous collection of eighteen stories covers familiar Hemingway themes. There are many great stories in this slim collection: The Battler, The End of Something, Out of Season, Big Two-Hearted River, and of course the collection's eponym.

Strong and intense, like black coffee, and best savoured slowly. Yes, he had limitations, but when it came to capturing a moment of poignancy, he was as good as anyone.

For all his quirks, Hemingway was an exceptional writer. Sometimes he hit, sometimes he missed. In The Snows of Kilimanjaro, he hits pretty much every time.
