批評家のレビュー

"A lean, sensuous narrative...taut, chic, and strangely contemporary....doing what nobody did better." (Time)

あらすじ・解説

A sensational best seller when it appeared in 1986, The Garden of Eden is the last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, which he worked on intermittently from 1946 until his death in 1961. Set on the Côte d'Azur in the 1920s, it is the story of a young American writer, David Bourne, his glamorous wife, Catherine, and the dangerous, erotic game they play when they fall in love with the same woman.

Faulty Chapter Breaks

I don't understand why the chapter/track breaks can't be organized better. It is a very simple fix, but in "The Garden of Eden," the track breaks do not match well with the book. For example, chapter 5 in the book is marked as chapter 2 in the Audible edition. Chapter 10 begins on the track marked chapter 3. They are broken up into fives for some reason. This is even more confounding as "The Garden of Eden" book is also broken up into sections called "books," e.g., Book 1, Book 2, etc. Yet in the Audible edition Book 2 begins in the track marked "Chapter 1" at about 50 minuntes in, not on a track break. Why? That is what I'm left with. It is a great book and great narration so why must it be put together so haphazardly?

Excellent

I remember reading excerpts from this in Life magazine in the mid-80s I have a hard copy I a hard copy a Kindle copy and an audible copy... in one fo it another this book has accompanied me around the world. The hard copy is stained and dog-eared... I have read it on every continent except Antarctica and it continues to move me.

This Autobiograph novel reveals alot about Hemingw

This is an autobiographical account of Hemingway in his earlier years. It was published posthumosly and given the revelations about his personal life I can see why he never published it during his lifetime. Alot is revealed about his sexual experiences but it is so subtle that it is easy to miss alot of it. He tells as a subplot some of his experiences in Aftrica Big Game hunting with his Father. I rate the book as 4 stars.

The reader (Patrick Wilson) did a fantastic job of portraying the characters, which added to my enjoyment of this novel. I rate his reading of this novel as 5 stars.

Great Story

If you could sum up The Garden of Eden in three words, what would they be?

A story about a young wife struggle in dealing with mental illness and finding herself.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Garden of Eden?

The most memorable moment for me came towards the end when the camels back finally broke.

Have you listened to any of Patrick Wilson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first time listening to Patrick. I thought he did very well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have if I had the time. I was very long but as with any book I wanted to give it my undivided attention and not miss any moments.

Any additional comments?

This book made me laugh and cry a bit and want to read other Hemingway novels

Not my favorite Hemingway novel

The narrative in this novel is excellent, consistent with his best writing. The character development is spotty, in my opinion and leaves the reader wishing for clearer purpose and understanding.

I love Hemingway but the dialog here is tedious.

I’m a big fan of his work, and I’m obsessed with the time period and the mediterranean, so this book was really promising. But I have to say the dialogue got really tedious and obnoxious after a while.

Not my favorite Hemingway

This was not one of my favorite Hemingway reads. The story starts of very sexy and transports you to an exotic French beach to enjoy the story of two newlyweds on a honeymoon. It was relxing to listen to but soon became annoying as nothing much happened. Day after day of banter ,eating and drinking. The title of the book is appropriate but the story could have been better developed. It just seemed to go flat.

Weedy.

I'm a great fan of Hemingway and his masculine prose but I was very disappointed by this. I'm not blaming Papa, if he had been alive to finish it he might have licked it into shape but, as it is, I can understand why it was never published in his lifetime.

The female protagonist was repulsively vain and annoying in a way that I don't think was intended. I don't think I was supposed to hate her but I did. The only redeeming part of the story was the short interlude that describes the male protagonist boyhood adventures in Africa. And it was a good narrative effort I suppose.
