    One thought on “Hunting for Hemingway

    1. Paul Dabrowski

      Ugh. I'm a huge Hemingway fan and pretty much read anything with his name in the title. Good & bad. Unfortunately this one was more of the latter than the former. Had high hopes as "Hunting for Heminway" began. But then Diane Gilbert Madsen let cliche & repetition take hold while adding on meaningless subplot after meaningless subplot. Two of which were literally wrapped up in a few paragraphs and one lead to the location for the ending. They came off as more filler to help lengthen the [...]

      Character development was a little sloppy as I really could not follow the sudden relationship between the main character and her love interest. I feel the story would have been better if there was no love interest at all. Madsen, instead, should have focused more on the plot as it had a lot more potential. I was disappointed. Book wasn't bad enough to stop reading but did not have the satisfying ending that I was expecting.

      Hemingway in any title will capture my attention; hence, it was fun to stumble upon this at the library upon my visit to check myself in at the front desk to ashamedly but happily read for two hours to read off my library fines.It seems that Hadley, Hemingway's first wife, left some very important manuscripts of Hemingway's on a train in a valise. Hemingway met her at the train station in Lausanne, and found her inconsolable about the loss. He immediately boarded the train and tried to retrace h [...]

      I must confess, the title got me. When browsing used books for sale at a local library, I had to pick up this paperback. The fifty cent price was right and Ernest Hemingway is my favorite author. A mystery novel surrounding Papa's lost works worth a try.Hunting for Hemingway turned out to be as average a book as I could imagine. It wasn't bad enough to stop reading or good enough to keep reading. I started it months ago and kept carrying it around in my computer bag, always finding something be [...]

      This is Diane Gilbert Madsen's second book in the D.D. McGil literary sleuthing series. While fictional, it is based on a true event in the life of Ernest Hemingway. That event was the disappearance of a valise containing some of his unpublished manuscripts. The fiction part is what would happen if that valise and its contents were to resurface many years later.Diane Gilbert Madsen chooses her themes with relish, writes a great story, and provides the unique enthusiasm of combining murder-myster [...]

      I liked the fact that Madsen incorporated some Hemingway facts. The clues should have been more subtle in who the killer was. There were some subtle racist moments in descriptions of random characters. Minus points for me on that. And the main character was too much of an alpha female for me (but again personal preference on me). In narrative it was great and had me on a hook on who the killer was.

      Insurance investigator DD McGil runs into an old boyfriend who wants her advice on the Hemingway manuscripts that have been sent to him. Then the insurance company she works for wants her to investigate the same documents. DD would be all set, if a murderer didn't have other ideas. Meanwhile, she takes on two different jobs and realizes that she has too many men interested in her. A good follow-up to "A Cadger's Curse." and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

      I actually needed to read a book with a typewriter on the cover. The hardcover, which was a large print edition, had the typewriter. My borrowed edition from the library did not, but it was all good. I liked this cozy mystery which had historical basis and content. DD didn't seem too stereotypical of the female leads in most cozies, but I grew bored with her romantic thoughts and interruptions.

      I liked this book. I don't remember reading a lot of Hemingway but I read a couple of his books. I liked the bits of history with the murder mystery. DD is a fun, funny, single girl looking for her way in the heart of Chicago. Hopefully, the next book will tell us about Scotty.

    11. Deb

      Very quick read, murder mystery, about lost manuscripts of Hemingway's coming to light, murder ensues, lots about authors,academia, Hemingway's early life, Chicago. This book is not on its way to being a classic, but it is a fun book to read.

    12. Toni ~married to a hunk~

      As I was reading this book I learned a lot about Hemingway. I also learned that this wasn't the first one in the series. I am going to go back and read the first one but did like them enough to try another.

    13. Susan Baumgartner

      A mystery trying to be a romance novel, or vice versa. The main character seems to have never met a guy who isn't both hot and of partner interest to her. Fun read, regardless.
