Comments to eBook Adios, Hemingway
Zulkishicage
This is a pleasant murder mystery, enhanced by its adroit mixture of fact and fiction. It's 1958 and the fabled Hemingway may or may not have killed an FBI agent. Now, years later, former Cuban police inspector Conde comes to grips with the mystery. Which is a little complicated since the ex-cop has become a writer and has a love/hate relationship with the late Hemingway. In addition to being a good mystery, Author Fuentes has fashioned a stunning piece of biography which, even with its fictional forays, sheds intriguing light on Hemingway's last days. If you are a Hemingway fan you will find this book of particular fascination. But in the final analysis, it is a delightful, quick read that brings alive once more the passions of a once-ago Havana and the literary legend who tried to find peace there in the autumn of his amazing life.

I was required to read this book for a trip to Cuba and before I read it I thought it wasn't going to be that good but it was very enjoyable. I ended up flying through it in a few hours. This is a good book for those who love Hemingway and particularly for those who are going to have a chance to visit Hemingway's home in Havana. It's description of the house is extremely accurate and vivid. Even if you are not familiar with Cuba, this is a very enjoyable and unique mystery novel focused on a famous American novelist. Padura is one of the most popular if not the most popular novelist in Cuba right now.

Just visited Hemingway's Havana home which made this book more alive. The author wrote as though he were Hemingway. I have not read any of his other books, but I will to see if it was just done on purpose for this book.
