Guess the book this Amazon review is complaining about. No, it’s not one of mine.
“From what I remember, all the characters were drunk, they spend all their time drinking and doing absolutly nothing productive with their lives. The language that Hemingway uses in the book was crude and ‘swear-like’.”
I think people like this book because it is written by the famous, Ernest Hemingway and they feel that they NEED to say it’s good because they want to fit in. It’s either that or they have no morals and don’t care what comes out of people mouths. These are the people that probably like to watch “Jerry Spinger”. Anyway, the book had no point and no plot. This was a very hard book to do a book report on and I ended up with a “C” on my book report because of my options did not map to the teachers.
I should mention: the reader posted this review “20+ years” after reading the novel. I think we should all thank Amazon for providing a new forum in which people can complain about high school.
I later found out that my teacher didn’t even read my book report and outsourced it to her teacher’s aid. This made me mad. Teachers should grade their own students book reports, not give the job to someone I don’t know. I could understand having a teacher outsourcing the grading of multiple choice/ true false tests. Things that have a definate “yes” or “no” answer to them but not essays. Anyway, if you like garbage and wasting your time this book is for you.
Talk about a lost generation. Somewhere, Jake Barnes is lighting a cigarette and sadly shaking his head.
