"The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Othe Stories" contains ten of Hemingway's most acclaimed and popular work of short fiction. Selected from "Winner Take Nothing", "Men without women" and "The Fifth column and the First Forty-Nine Stories", this collection includes "The killers", the first of Hemingway's mature stories to be accepted by an American periodical; the autobiographical "Fathers and Sons", which alludes, for the first time in Hemingway's career, to his father's suidice; "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber", a brilliant fusion of personal observation, hersay and invention", wrote Hemingway's biographer, Carlos Baker; and the little story itself, of which Hemingway said: "I put all the true stuff in", with enough material, he boasted, to fill four novels. Beautiful in their simplicity, straling in their originality, and unsurpassed in their craftmanship, the stories in this volume highlight one of America's master strorytellers at the top of his form.

This book will be an international ring. I haven't yet read it but I'll read Hemingway's stories before launching the ring.

The readers are:
Vanigliacocco (Italy)
19ka (Italy)
DevilKitty (Italy)
inkling1 (Germany)
Brujula (France)
Ametisti (Finland)
Piolha (Portugal)
Tanea31 (Portugal)
Lisatam (Portugal)
outofreach (Australia)

The above list is always open and changeable to fit everyone's will (as long as I can)

I felt these short storys full of melanchony and sadness. My favorites were "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" because of its atmosphere and "A Day's Wait" that's really really funny.

I sent the book yesterday.

Arrivato oggi! Sarà il prossimo dopo Zafòn!:)

Journal Entry 6 by DevilKitty from Camogli, Liguria Italy on Thursday, April 02, 2009
The book is here with me. Please be patient as I have two books to read first (don't worry, one is almost finished already). I'll try not to keep you waiting too long.

Journal Entry 7 by DevilKitty from Camogli, Liguria Italy on Tuesday, May 05, 2009
Ok, I'm done with it. It wasn't that pleasant actually, though. By Hemingway I read once The Old Man and the Sea and For whom the Bell Tolls and I enjoyed them, as far as I remember, but this collection is too full of death, weapons, hunting, blood and desperation for me. Or maybe it's my state of mind that has changed through the years and I cannot stand any longer such darkness.
Thanks anyway for sharing.
The book will leave Italy as soon as the fellow bookcrosser sends me the address.

received this book today;small, and big letters - has a good chance to be read inbetween of several waiting bookrings. Many thanks for this ring
I really enjoyed some of the stories- but not all (his hunting and sports stories are not my cup of tea)
alas, my favourite story is missing (we read it in school long ago, and was about an old man sitting near a bridge during the war)

I found this book when I came back home after a holiday of two weeks. Thank you for sending it! (and I think packing it in newspaper is very clever... I was tempted to undo the package very carefully to try to read the german!)

I'm really sorry I've kept this book so long! One whole year! I do have an excuse, with moving to another region, starting a new job... But I should have given some news!
Well, I've finally read these short stories, have liked some of them more than others.
And now I'm ready to send the book on its journey! Thank you for sharing it, and for your patience!

Received the book in mail today. Thank you! I look foward to reading this and sending off by the end of this year.

Y'all have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Journal Entry 14 by Ametisti at Nurmijärvi, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Sunday, January 16, 2011
Finally got to read the book - and didn't finish but two of all the short stories. Hemingway's long sentences are beautiful but too long for me. I can see the sharp, smart thoughts in the text but somehow it bores me so that I cannot read it. Again I must admit that Hemingway is not my cup of tea ;)

I enjoyed most the stories I managed to finish: The Snows of Kilimanjaro and A clean well-lighted place.

Next I'll PM Piolha for an address and send this book to the next reader. Thank you for the ring, etnagigante!

EDIT: No replies from Piolha or Tanea31. Book is on its way to Lisatam in Portugal.

Sending the book to Lisatam in Portugal. Happy reading!

Journal Entry 16 by lisatam at Lisboa - City, Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Saturday, August 20, 2011
I appologise for the delay in acknowledging and thanking you for the reception of this book and also for the delay in passing it on after reading it. It is not an usual attitude of mine, but I can only ask for your forgiveness - work, work, work, has been my life for the last year!!!

I have read it and, as others said before, Hemingway although a brilliant writer, is not my cup of tea :):):)

I have already tried to contact literarylover (USA) but got no reply. Will now try outofreach (Australia).

Again, my appologies for the delay!
