I'm not really a fan of Hemingway as a writer, at least not of anything I've read by him so far which include: The Old Man and the Sea, The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls. I did read those all back in high school, so I'll have to give them another whirl at some point as a lot of my taste has changed since then.
As for Hemingway as a person- a lot of what I've read about him is really cool. The way he lived, the experiences he had are really impressive (apart from the alcoholism). He won a bet that he couldn't write a complete story in six words. He came up with "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." and won.
Anyone a Hemingway fan? Hater? Know anything about him or his work?
I'll soon be taking a class about Americans in Paris during the 20s, and have been reading many books concerning Hemingway: A Moveable Feast, Geniuses Together, and The Paris Wife (which I loved). That being said, I do not like Hemingway as a person or as a writer.
