    Even Some Women Love Hemingway

    So far my favorite of his works is "A Farewell to Arms". I love the depth and honesty, frailty and imperfections of his characters. The way he draws you in and makes you the fly on the wall is initimately personal, beautiful, and tragic all at the same time. Though this work is...

    Lady Brett is one of the most amazing

    and breathtaking female character I have known in literature. There is something so free-spirited yet so chaotic and lost about her. "The Sun also Rises" is definitely one of the books that drew me to the author. Recommended!
