The Hemingway | Reading List

The Hemingway | Reading List

Currently, I am working my way chronologically through Hemingway’s work. His short stories and novels have always served as an inspiration to me. One of the many things, I admire most about Hemingway is his ability to write a story as if the reader is watching it unfold. He almost puts the reader in the backseat as the story progresses. It is not the flamboyant story telling or illustrative language that he uses that places the reader there. Instead it is the simplicity of his writing that allows the reader to feel the story, while filling in the blanks.

For those that love Hemingway in the way that I do, here is my reading list for this summer.
