Islands in the Stream

180px-IslandsInTheStreamCurrently re-reading Hemingway’s 8th and longest novel Islands in the Stream.  This has always been one of my favorite EH novels.  It was the first of two published (in 1970) after his death .  The book received little critical acclaim but it was however on the New York Times best-seller list for 24 weeks.  The novel is broken into three parts: part 1, “Bimini” (200 pages/15 chapters), part 2, “Cuba” (125 pages all in one chapter) and finally part 3, “At Sea” (135 pages/22 chapters).
