    Just finished the book this morning...then found out that I have to view an apartment at 3pm. Sorry to miss what I'm sure will be a terrific discussion.

    Even though I am not a huge fan of reading but I am trying to become one and joining this club might help me and I am also trying to meet new friends

    Jon's comment in effect explaining away hemingway's rough sentences slowed me down: does "molest" really mean "bother," "mole star" in Spanish. Jordan's an American, right. So why does he the British slang "sod"?

    Sorry Bonnie, I thought I would have the book read by now but haven't found time to start it.

    I gather that there is no room. I understand that too many "yeses" can defeat the purpose of a book club. I hope I can get in for the next meeting.

    When I tried to read this in my youth, I was put off by the "stilted" dialogue. Now, after having lived in Spain, it's obvious that Hemingway was doing a direct translation of the Spanish to give a more authentic flavor. I think it's a terrific book!

    The Gary Cooper/Ingrid Bergman movie on Netflix streaming is actually pretty good too. It doesn't have the internal monologues of the book, which are brilliant, but it's still very powerful and will help you if you don't have time to read it before Sunday.

    Don't let the high numbers of yeses keep you from coming. If this were the Spanish Civil War, we would have to shoot all the people who say they are coming and then don't show up. More corpses than survivors! Thank goodness, it's not the Spanish Civil War. The only war which approaches that for barbarity is the Vietnam War, but of course we can't admit that.

    We have had quite a large number of Yes responses for this Meetup, so I have closed the registration.

    Is there a location?

  • Mike B.

    It's been more years than I care to remember since I've looked at Hemingway. And I don't think I can match the enthusiasm I had for him, but I'll try.

  • Betsy S.

    Looking forward to the discussion.
