    The book is good. It's good but it's sad. It's a good, sad book about a good, sad man, and that's what Hemingway intended. He knew that writing a good book is a fine thing, because people will enjoy reading it.I tell myself that he's right: reading a good book is a good thing. You can be glad that the book is good, and you can be glad that you are not a character in the book, because Hemingway books are sad books, and characters in Hemingway books do not have an easy time of it. But it's a good, [...]

    Oh how I wish Hemingway had lived to revise and compile this book. Published posthumously and with only minor attention given to copy editing by Papa's publisher and last wife, the book limns its main character in three parts: as an artist living in the Gulf before WWII, as a grief-stricken u-boat hunter in Cuba following the loss of his sons, and in a final hunt for German fugitives. The unifying theme is in line with the Hemingway code: man is powerless before the abyss, but can behave with gr [...]

    The Most Interesting Man in the World: The Novel(s). I removed Islands in the Stream from my “currently reading” shelf because I wasn’t sure I would ever finish it. The first part, “Bimini,” is the best part of the novel, and could probably have stood alone as a short novel. It tells the story of Thomas Hudson, a somewhat famous painter, and the visit of his three sons. It’s fishing and drinking and eating and story telling, with a tragic ending . Pure Hemingway, with some wonderful [...]

    Look at me, reading Hemingway! :DIt's off to a great start. I'm really enjoying this book so far.Not sure if I got lucky or if Hemingway truly is a good writer. I no longer, though, have an aversion to Hemingway's works and will gladly read more in the future.This story of Thomas Hudson had me glued to the pages. Hemingway has a way of blending his personal life with his fiction. He brings elements of his life into this story and builds around them. It's not all autobiographical but enough so th [...]

    I have often thought that there should be a reluctance on the part of the estate of a deceased writer to publish any of an author's works posthumously. Seriously, if the book was finished and the writer hadn't bothered to take it to the publisher, what would you assume his motives to be? An aversion to money, perhaps? This book is one of several that was published after Hemingway's suicide, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he hadn't published it simply because he felt that it wasn't good en [...]

    Falling in love at an advanced age you would think would be a little bit different. But I am like a school girl. I'm not writing Me and Ernie 4 Eva on my notebooks but I might as well be the way I am mooning around about Papa Hemingway these days. Without a doubt I'm head over heels and “Islands in the Stream” only confirms it.Even though this book was never highly praised by his critics and is one of his later works it is, to me, one of the finest literary works to pass before these tired e [...]

    Only giving 4 stars as its not my favourite Hemingway book.But it's still classic Hemingway writing.It's amazing how he writes such clear simple sentencesand still leaves such vivid images in your mind.You would never need a dictionary reading Hemingway.He just captures so easily some of the beauty of life just casually(or so it seems) as he tells his story.He is not everyone's cup of tea but for me one of my favourite authors.

    "איים בזרם" הוא הספר הראשון שפורסם לאחר מותו של המינגווי. הספר פורסם בשנת 1970 והוא מורכב מ- 3 חלקים שמתארים תקופות שונות בחיו של הגיבור תומס האדסון.אישית מצאתי הרבה קווי דמיון והרבה מהביוגרפיה של המינגווי בחלק הראשון של הספר ומעט בחלק השני. למרות שהגיבור צייר, ההיסטוריה שלו כמע [...]

    As a Hemingway fan, there is a lot to like and enjoy about this book. For instance, we’re lucky that it is here in the first place. Being the first of the posthumously published works, Hemingway had no intention of publishing it himself, but here it is. Islands in the Stream is filled with lines that could only come from Hemingway. Filled with his crisp style of writing that leaves so much to the imagination that the story transforms into truth in the minds of his readers.The problem with Isla [...]

    This may have been the most miserable slog through prose that I've ever endured. Highlights include the children's stilted dialogue in Bimini, long digressive stories told to a prostitute in Cuba, (Which she manages to point out are boring as all get out.) and then it finally gets interesting, though in need of serious edits about page 385. Please for the love of god, read any of EH's other books. There is a reason that this one wasn't published until after his death. Read the last book, (At Sea [...]

    Este livro divide-se em três partes, das quais gostei da primeira, não gostei da segunda e gostei mesmo muito da terceira.A primeira passa-se numa ilha das Caraíbas, na qual o pintor Thomas Hudson (o protagonista da história) vive e trabalha, pintando quadros cujos temas principais são cenas marítimas, e decorre durante umas férias onde este é visitado pelos seus três filhos, o mais velho, um adolescente fruto do seu primeiro casamento e da única mulher que amou na vida, e os dois mais [...]

    Disclaimer: this was the first Hemingway book I've read. I wish I'd started off with something else, like one of his "masterpieces", because this one left me frustrated, exhausted, and disappointed, even a bit disgusted. I started out thinking I was really going to enjoy it, and liked the affectionate tones and his style of writing. By the end of the novel I felt like I was stuck in a room with a drunk man that was making me listen to a drawn out, glorified, story of his life and all the indulge [...]

    This was put together posthumously. If you accept that and give the book a little leeway it's a great read about dealing with adversity. The first section "Bimini" is incredible. If you liked The Old man and the Sea, this is right up there. At the beginning of the second part "Cuba" my mind started to drift and I couldn't focus when he was discussing Thomas Hudson's cats. I may have been contrasting it to the the first section with the abrupt change. The momentum quickly comes back when the stor [...]

    my favorite novelfore i experienced a loss, i was drawn to stories of loss this is the best of theme greatest love story ever written.

    Pochi scrittori sanno stritolare la vita come Hemingway. La stritolano con le proprie mani, la vivono con un'intensità senza pari, ne muoiono sopraffatti e ce la riconsegnano rimettendone insieme i pezzi attraverso le loro storie."Isole nella corrente" non è una lettura semplice: è scritto da un autore in palese difficoltà non solo col suo mestiere ma anche con la sua vita, e nonostante questo riesco a perfettamente a sentire ancora l'odore del mare quando leggo le sue pagine. Hemingway ha l [...]

    For anyone who would venture upon this novel as their first trip into Hemingway, I'd presume a rating of far less celestial body. The reality is, this posthumously published, three-part story is not Hemingway's best. In fact, the novel has some pretty uncharacteristic flaws. It is full of the very traditional Hemingway: startling one-liners, little plot with heavy emotion and warmth, intense scene recognition and spatial consideration, machismo oozing out the ears. You name it.But, for the Hemin [...]

    Ernest Hemingway first discovered Cuba in 1928. He spent a good portion of his life in Cuba. His fondness for the island is evident in his life and in some of his writings. Most of Hemingway's time in Cuba was spent in Havana. From 1932 to about 1939, Hemingway took up residence in Room 511 of Havana's Hotel Ambos Mundos. In 1939, Hemingway became a permanent resident of Cuba with his purchase of the Finca La Vigía, a villa in the suburbs of Havana. Finca La Vigía was built in 1886 and was Hem [...]

    This is a Hemingway book. Let me list some of the more predominate themes:*Being a Man*Drinking*Attention to simple yet real meals*The Sea, predominately the Gulf*Hunting - both animals (fishes particularly) and people (Nazis specifically)*Suicide*Suffering*The Weather*Whores*Cats*Beautiful Things*Art*Former lovers whom can only be referred to in way such as, her or the one he let get away*Loss - get ready for dead children*War - both internal and globalLet me list some of the things that are no [...]

    I've been a Hemingway fan all my life, and even though I read this novel as a teen, it didn't really work for me. All the good stuff reads like imitations of stuff he did when he was younger, before the booze and the multiple wives and the multiple concussions. And some of the wishful thinking is almost comical! Thomas Hudson drinks a Heineken for breakfast and then says, "it would be easy to be a rummy, wouldn't it." And then INSTANTLY his loyal flunky (who is a real rummy, natch) chimes in wit [...]

    I haven't read Hemingway in many years and decided to use him for this winter's reads. This book is truly a great work. Efficient, direct and hard but stirring to the soul. He is best read by those who have lived a bit, for those readers who have not yet lived much, might find it a little hard to find a bit foreign.

    My first and favorite Hemingway's book. Three stories ranging from a fascinating portrait of a father and his three sons to a war story in the Caribbean. The most touching novel. It has nostalgic appeal.

    Superb Hemingway dialogue that made me laugh out loud on a number of occasions. The nautical imagery was brilliant and I could smell the salt on the pages. Part 3 was especially intense, having done a bit of VBSS myself.

    The setting for this three part Hemingway novel that wasn't published until '87, motivated me to read it. Out of respect for the author, I'll point out that readers should be aware of possible reasons that an author's work might have been with held in their living years. Harper Lee's "Go Set A Watchman" is another that failed to deliver in spite of the author's reputation.For the curious or those equally interested in settings that are rooted deeply in an author's psych, "Islands in the Stream" [...]

    Islands in the Stream, published after Hemingway's suicide, is a strange, sad and poignant tale of a man who lives in the Gulf Stream. I will not risk spoiling anyhting. Suffice to say that the story is broken into three parts: * a summer spent on Bimini island when the boys visit their father for a season of fishing and diving. * an episode in Havana, during the second world war, when the protagonist Thomas Hudson is temporarily between missions. * a key-hopping hunt through the islands over Cu [...]

    Not fair to rate a book which was published unfinished and posthumous. The first chapter (Bimini) was fantastic, the second (Cuba) fascinating and sad, the third (At Sea) too obscure and tiring.

    I know they tell you no man is an island--but the hero of this book IS an island. The trajectory of the book follows the main character as he becomes completely cut off from his emotional attachments. Thomas Hudson becomes lonelier and more internal as each page passes.Islands in the Stream was published posthumously. The smooth, connected narratives that appear in the other Heminway novels are not here. Instead of having Hemingway's final draft, we have three stories assembled by his last wife [...]
