The Classics Spin #19

Twitter hashtag: #ccspin

For Classics Spin #14, I got #1: A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin
For Classics Spin, #15, I got #12: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?by Philip K. Dick
For Classics Spin, #16, I got #4: Arsène Lupin, by Maurice Leblanc

For Classics Spin, #17, I got #3: The Face of Another, by Kobo Abe (not yet reviewed!!)

For Classics Spin, #19, I got #1: 

A Moveable Feast

I’m going into this with fear and trembling, and lots of conflicting feelings:

  • I really didn’t like much all the Hemingway’s books I had to read at school
  • I’m ashamed that I have not read it yet, seeing the setting!
  • So I’m relieved I FINALLY HAVE to read it
  • Because of the setting, I hope it will be good
  • BUT some Goodreads reviewers who have a love/hate relationship with the author seem to imply it’s really not worth my time…

I am curious. What do YOU think?

I have until end of January to read and review it.
It’s never too late to challenge yourself to (re)discover the classics and connect and have fun with other Classics lovers. See what this is all about.

  1. I haven’t read anything by Hemingway, although I’ve been wondering about it – just not sure where to start. The Goodreads summary makes me think I’d like Movable Feast, so I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

  2. I listened to it on audio a couple years ago and it was okay. Not one of my favorite works of his. There was a restored edition that came out in 2009 that is supposedly closer to Hemingway’s intention. Apparently, his fourth wife edited the 1964 edition to conform with her prejudices.

    • Oh I didn’t know about the differences in edition. I’ll just read whatever edition EPL has, I’m going to go pick it up tomorrow, with my surprise book for the Winter Challenge. The suspense sis killing me. They told me my book was ready for pick up, but not what it was!!
