AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. I know this is not a politically correct review of a great like Hemingway . . . but these were not stories, but incomplete thoughts! It reminded me of the movie "Planes, trains and automobiles" with Steve Martin when he complains to John Candy about his endless chatter to have a point! These stories have no point!! It was torture to listen to them. I kept waiting for greatness, but found none. Plus, as an animal lover I was disturbed by the frequent graphic references to hunting and bull fighting. Did I mention the gratuitous use of French? Spare me! The only saving grace is that Stacy Keach was suprisingly good.
