"The Snows of Kilimanjaro"
"The Snows of Kilimanjaro" By: E. Hemingway. I have to say, I think this is the first story I've read that I didn't like. The story is of a man, with his many regrets and pessimistic attitude that drowns out the rest of the story. I couldn't get past the "woe-is-me" and the, "I'm disgruntled, so I'll take it out on you," fame of mind. He's dying from a would that wasn't properly taken care of. So, he's purposefully distant and uncaring towards those who've been there to take care of him. So, he dies, and it's the end. Thank goodness!
