My War with Hemingway
My War with Hemingway
Price: $3.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Charles is great at dialogue and it ..., July 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Loved it ! Charles is great at dialogue and it really rang true.

Loved the psychological aspect of the aftermath of returning from war and how it affected the main character and some he ran into. I can imagine this book would be a valuable insight for a returning war veteran who thinks his adjustment problems are his alone and does not realize the common psychological adjustments facing returnees.

The Hemingway appearances are akin to the main character's visits to an analyst, albeit an alcoholic one, and add an element of humor and wisdom.

I usually read books in bits and pieces, but once I started it, I had to read it right through to see what happened to each character.

It is "clean writing " with none
of the lengthy asides or tedious descriptions which most readers skip over to get to the heart of the matter.

I'd love to see this made into a movie !

4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A PAGE TURNER !, July 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Lost Hadith (Kindle Edition)
"The Lost Hadith" is a page turner ! Once you start it, you're hooked. Quite an adventure ! It's an exciting action story, --so good that I think it's ready to be made into a terrific movie. It's almost camera-ready as it sticks to the "script" and doesn't waste words with long asides or ramblings. Accordingly, the characters are well developed and can be envisioned easily by their conversations and acts rather than by space- filling prose. It's good, tight writing.

You kill two birds with one stone reading Thorpe's book. He has done a huge amount of background research and there's a lot to be learned about the workings and history of Islam and its warring factions. "The Lost Hadith" is both exciting and informative.

I hate assembling things and I hated trying to assemble this shoe rack way more than that. A trillion parts that do not go together easily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harder than the full size pillow., August 21, 2012

It's not as soft and comfortable as the full size pillow, but I'm sure it'll be better than hotel pillows for keeping my neck in check.

1.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking?, August 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a sad comment on standards today that so many people loved this book. I read it all the way through because the reviews were so good, thinking it would redeem itself at some point. I was sure she'd kill off the insane Travis ,which would have been justified. It reads like the diary of a moronic teenage girl who has no value system.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trash, August 7, 2012

This review is from: Trophies (Paperback)
One of the worst pieces of trash I have ever read and , unfortunately, I read it all the way through. Unbelievably dimwitted and sensationalistic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous, February 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Enough to drive a lawyer bananas. If you're going to write about a trial, you should attempt to be knowledgable about the rules of court. Maybe I missed it, but was Hannah African American? I don't recall any mention of ethnicity until the end when her skin was described as the color of milk chocolate.
