Book Review: A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

A Moveable FeastA Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Moveable Feast is Ernest Hemingway’s reminiscence of the people and places that he knew when he was young, married to his first wife and just starting out as a writer in Paris. With intimate little glimpses into the lives of many prominent members of the “lost generation,” including Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein, A Moveable Feast is a fascinating read with some incredible writing in it. There is this one line that especially fascinates me:

…I thought that all generations were lost by something and always had been and always would be….

All I can say is that after reading A Moveable Feast, I am feeling a slight obsession with Hemingway coming on and it is probably a good thing that I already have For Whom The Bell Tolls out from the library and ready to read.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
