    " This biographical book is very interesting, it is a realist version and has a lot to tell. The story is described vividly and it has a very unique style of writing. I can say that this is a book that is worthy reading it, and knowing interesting stories of people in our past. "

    "I really enjoyed this book. The way he slips into a different kind of Utopian world and how he got there I think is a very fresh and new take on a plot line most people have seen or read before. "

    "I'm a huge fan of T.S Eliot and have been since Midnight in Paris, so I'm constantly seeking out work done by him. The Waste Land and Other Poems includes work from T.S Eliot which is great for anybody interested in the guy. He's an absolute gem that blesses anything he touches. "

    "I read this book as part of a book club, and while I have often been accused of never finding a book I don't like, this one would be a strong contender. While I found the subject and author interesting, I personally did not care for her writing style and affect. I found it to be on the dull side and really did not move me at all."

    "Paris France is a non fiction book about Gertrude Stein's life. Who else could take the fall of Paris to the Nazis and make it sound enthralling? The author provides humor with a side of indulgence in this tragic story which she steers to the food and artistic side of France that makes it such a vital part of this world."

    "I'm far from a Hemingway aficionado, but i would recommend the Sun Also Rises and the Old Man and the Sea before this novel. I think it was worth the read and the last sixty pages were like the last round of a boxing match in which a K.O on either side is inevitable. His prose is tight, as advertised, if only Hemingway could sustain his genius for the whole length of this book. Unfortunately,"

    The Old Man and the Sea tells the story of an old Cuban fisherman named Santiago and his supreme ordeal with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. It was the last major work of fiction to be produced by Hemingway.

    "Sometimes, I wonder how they come up with these obscure topics, but I just so happen to know a little about this one. "The Old Man and the Sea" was an excellent book, and quintessential Hemingway. If you consider yourself a fan of good literature, you'd be a fool to pass this one up; I highly recommend it!"

    "Anna and the French Kiss centers around a girl from Atlanta. I love stories that we've my hometown into the plot. Anna's journey to Paris is so fun to read. I felt like I was her off on an adventure to Paris, France. The story kept my attention till the end. I think a younger reader would enjoy the story more."

    ""For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Ernest Hemingway is a classic. I remember reading this in school. For me, it is very confusing and hard for me to understand the characters. It is one of Hemingways longest stories and drags on a bit. If you are a big Hemingway fan, then you may like this, otherwise, you may be bored."
