Best Hemingway to start with?
Old man and the sea
I think his memoir A Moveable Feast is a great place to start. It sort of adds perspective and enables you to adapt to his writing without going off the deep end since the context is more easily followed.
Very curious as well
Some of the short stories (“Indian Camp,” “A Clean Well-Lighted Place,” “In Another Country”) and then A Farewell to Arms.
The Old Man and the Sea
The one I enjoyed most was posthumously published, The Garden of Eden.
For Whom the Bell Tolls!
A Movable Feast
The Old man and the sea
The first book Ernest published was called “In Our Time.” It contains short stories and vignettes. He was a journalist and the compact style of journalism influenced his style and is readily evident in the vignettes. All the other recommendations are good also.
A Farewell to Arms
The old man and the sea
I love the Old Man and the Sea
“A Farewell To Arms”
For Whom the Bell Tolls
When I finished The Old Man and the Sea I wanted my time back lol!
It depends what kind of story you are looking for. The Old Man and the Sea, being his most renowned work certainly isn’t the most exciting of his writing. The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls, or A Farewell to Arms are fantastic. Also, there are many gems in his collected short stories.
The Sun Also Rises is the bomb.
A Farewell to Arms. It would be a timely read as it’s the 100th anniversary of the Armistice on Sunday.
A farewell to Arms!
