The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories Paperback
Men and women of passion and action live, fight, love and die in scenes of dramatic intensity.
From haunting tragedy on the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro to brutal sensationalism in the bullring; from rural America with its deceptive calm to the heart of war-ravaged Europe, each of the stories in this classic collection is a feat of imagination, and a masterpiece of description.
The Snows of Kilimanjaro is one of the best known and loved collections of stories by one of the greatest literary novelists of the twentieth century.

Review by edwinbcn
I was rather disappointed to find out that The snows of Kilimanjaro, and other stories is an anthology, consisting of 18 short stories taken from various short story collections.Most stories in this collection are very short, consisting of dialogues about very down to earth topics. I enjoyed the little discussion about the merits of Hugh Walpole and G.K. Chesterton in "The Three-Day Blow".Most stories are a pleasure to read, but are hardly memorable.

A collection of short stories. Well written, but these are fragments, not short stories as I know them.Read May 2004
