If you've ever had the fantasy of meeting one of your favorite authors or historical persons... this book is for you.
Initial Concept: Main Character is in a life-threatening accident which puts him in a coma where he encounters Ernest Hemingway's ghost 50 yrs after Hemingway's death by suicide.
As it turns out... these two have quite a lot to discuss ...places to go & things to do.
At the heart...it's about following our dreams & bliss & using our gifts with gratefulness and gratitude. Also about learning from others.
I loved the movie MEET JOE BLACK with Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt.
This book reminds me of that film.
The author has an excellent sense of humor and has done a lot of research to get the details of Hemingway's life accurate.
I read a review from an English teacher worried about the grammar...
MY ADVICE: If a book is leaving you entertained and inspired... don't ruin your own fun by "grading the paper". Reading should take us places we can't get to otherwise and this book does that. Hope I bump into the author at Hemingway's house in Key West one day!
In this book, the author tells the story of a supernatural encounter with the literary icon, Ernst "Papa" Hemingway. Told from a first-person perspective, the story reads very much like a personal memoir. With pages that are filled with dynamic scenes, historic details, and colorful monologue, the author weaves a story that is believable. In fact, the prose draws the reader into the story and gives us cause to maybe loosen our grip on our notion of what is absurd. It is then that we open our minds to the realm of possibility. After all, there is much that is beyond our current knowledge and understanding of the universe. With that said, who are we to say that such an encounter is impossible? Shouldn't we at least entertain the idea???
Hemingway himself is brilliantly portrayed and hits Jack about the head with some eye-opening situations – thoroughly enjoyed the four days with this particular ghost!
Of course, this is also about Jack taking the risk to become a writer, and there are some worthy lessons in that part of the tale also.
I found this well-written, heart-rending at times, amusing at others. Well done to the author, indeed. Highly recommended. Hemingway’s ghost will inspire you.
Jack realizes that someone is standing beside him on the street; he looks and realizes it is the author, Ernest Hemingway, who has been dead for 50 years. What ensues is a beautiful romp with a famous author / mentor guiding Jack through some of Hemingway's favorite haunts and giving him a look at what the real Hemingway was really like. Hemingway, having been sent by the "man upstairs" to help decide whether Jack will recover and go on to use the talents God has given him or whether he will die,tries to mentor the young man and guide him to see his potential. The time he spends with Hemingway is delightful and the rest of the book is very realistic for todays time. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read !!!!
