Okay I’m trying to spend my birthday amazon giftcard. I’m not set on getting all (or any?) John Steinbeck (whom I asked about on an earlier thread). Have any of you read Hemingway? Would you recomnend any of his works? If not, who would you recommend (for pure pleasure reading)?
I love Hemingway and I also enjoyed Steinbeck – I really enjoyed The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls, and I also enjoyed The Old Man and the Sea and A Farewell to Arms – so as you can see I like his style. I enjoyed The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck. I read a lot of Leo Tolstoy for pleasure reading, I especially enjoyed Anna Karenina and I love all Charles Dickens. I recently finished Les Miserable by Victor Hugo and that was excellent. I enjoyed The Far Pavilians by MM Kaye, The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas and I especially enjoy George Elliott novels – my favourite being Middlemarch.
Hope you find something to spend the card on – there are always too many books and not enough time for me, lol. Lindadmccall3Participant
Thanks! Les Miserables is one of my all time favorites! A lot of the ones you listed are free for kindle so hooray – I can have those then buy a Steinbeck and a Hemngway… That’s one plan. Hmmm… Too many books to choose from I tell you! 🙂
