rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Nick Adams Stories, by Ernest Hemingway, was a worthwhile read and quite good. I enjoyed Nick Adam's adventures, but I do not like his overly macho attitude. It's a very male book, interesting and informative but annoying. I liked the outdoor stories. The war stories were upsetting and I didn't like his attitude about women and native Americans. I did like how carefully he explained everything. I did not really like the way he started things and left them unfinished without even a hint of how they might turn out. Still it was good. I may reread them at some time.
