  1. Hemingway wrote this book in ten days in order to opt out of a dissatisfying contract and to sign with Scribner at the urging of F Scott Fitzgerald who makes a hilarious appearance in the book Some have dismissed it as a satirical skewering of the the styles of the modern realists such as Anderson and dos Passos And yes, while those elements are present, they do not come at the expense of Hemingway himself For this is also Hemingway s own farewell to his roots to Illinois and to his debt to Sher [...]


  2. This is Hemingway publicly mocking his friend and mentor, Sherwood Anderson It is a harsh thing to insult the person to which you owe your first publishing deal, as well as much of your writing style, but if you have read much of the biographical material on Hemingway, you will know that he was a hugely selfish and egotistical person The manuscript was later used to break from his publisher the same as Anderson s for a better deal from Scribner s.But it is funny Funny mostly due to it s absurd q [...]


  3. Das nennt man wohl, mit dem falschen Buch in das neue Jahr gestartet Hemingway war schon lange auf meiner Liste, doch Die Sturmfluten des Fr hlings war eindeutig keine gute Wahl um in das Schaffen des Herrn einzusteigen Dieser kurze Roman ist n mliche eine satirische Abhandlung und ein Angriff des Autors auf seinen damaligen Verleger, seine Kollegen und eine Abrechnung mit Teilen seiner eigenen Herkunft Somit gestaltet sich der Genuss sehr schmal, wenn man die Biografie von Ernest nicht kennt.Tr [...]


  4. A book that gets your heart racing and then suddenly the author cuts you off ruining the moment.I hated the beginning but as the book progressed, I must say, Hemingway and his antics paid off.



  5. Just funny I don t even get all the references, because I m not a 1920s era author, but poking fun at establishment and pretentiousness resonates with all generations.


  6. I first read this book in college, when I was consuming everything that Hemingway wrote and thought everything he wrote was spun gold Even in that Hemingway hysteria, I hated this book I thought that as an adult with a better appreciation for the literary world that Hemingway was lampooning I would like it , and after reading it for a second time, I have no idea why I thought that and want to yell at me from five days ago It s far worse than I remember it Do you need to spend a few hours reading [...]


  7. What an odd, un Hemingwayesque novella At times I thought I had fallen into a Nathanael West absurdist comedy I know Papa wrote it as a parody of Sherwood Anderson, but, not knowing Anderson s work well enough to get it, I still thought this slim book a droll delight.




  8. I read this, along with any other Hemingway books I could find, in order to better understand the woman who recommended him to me Having gotten through several novels and innumerable short stories by the author, I was rather startled by this, his first published novel, as it is entirely unlike everything else Indeed, it is a sophomoric satire which I found very funny at the time although I had little idea of the literary styles Hemingway was parodying.


  9. I read this on the redeye and I wasn t really paying attention because Dennis Rodman was making a ruckus by the bathrooms At any rate, I don t think satire was Hemingway s thing.If you liked this, make sure to follow me on for reviews


  10. This book made me laugh outloud, numerous times It s quite different then most Hemingway It s not a serious book, it s kinda goofy,and I thought it was great fun.



  11. For a Hemingway way book, this is a very poor substitute for one Every section Hemingway felt he had to do a summary and then go on an ego trip of who he knew or met.The book itself had a poor story line In parts Hemingway bragged it took him a few hours to write I can truly believe that.The story themes of a relationship breaking up, working in a bean factory, the indigenous community being suppressed had all the hallmarks of an Erskine Caldwell book.



  12. Mildly amusing As this novel is said to be a satire, particularly of Sherwood Anderson s DARK LAUGHTER, a fair reviewer would also read that novel, which hardly seems worthwhile.



  13. To be frank, it is a short little thing that I cannot quite classify as either good or bad but it is Hemingway and thus I was propelled through it all The whole affair is very absurd to read, especially all the Author s notes that are left through out the text Honestly, I could not say I would recommend this to be read by any folks who don t care to have a shelf filled with every Hemingway work But I would recommend those who want an hour or two alone with some strange and baffling piece of writ [...]


  14. The ratings of this book vary Wildly Some people complain about Hemingway s writing style These people, of course, are misguided To each his own, I suppose, and the book is less refined than others of his works Other reviewers complain that the book is incomprehensible to them They gripe that they are not familiar with the works that Hemingway was parodying what an odd complaint to lay at an author s feet The latter criticism is unfortunate for another reason Hemingway wrote Torrents in a week b [...]


  15. I liked it for odd reasons If you are looking for something short by Ernest Hemingway, start with The Old Man and the Sea If you are looking for something long, start with For Whom the Bell Tolls If you are looking for something by him obscure, try Islands in the Stream.I think I liked this book most for the random historical insights I gathered For example, I was entertained to learn that loin cloths were standard attire for native american factory workers at the time and place of the story Mo [...]


  16. Review can also be found in Chill and readWhat can one say of The Torrents of Spring This is not a classic Hemingway book For those who know him and have read his books, this is not going to be one of their favorite That said, let s get into the book details.The Torrents of Spring is a hilarious parody of the Chicago school of literature Poking fun at that great race of writers, it depicts a vogue that Hemingway himself refused to follow Rumor has it, he practically written this book in ten days [...]


  17. It s Hemingway s first novel and you can kind of tell The style is like a college student doing a fairly decent, though sometimes poor, impression of Hemingway The stillness of the world is there, as is the man trying to be a man, but it doesn t have the same resonating sound of Great America and the wild drink and conversation for the ages It s all very humdrum, but, in fleeting moments, it s Hemingway s version of humdrum Other times, it s just really, really humdrum The plot, the characters, [...]


  18. Written as parody, and partial rejection of his mentors, teachers and fellow writers of the 1920s, and partly to set off on his own as a writer It reads like a parody of itself almost but it comes together and is as satisfying as many a conventional novel Things happen plot to people characters in specific places settings It may be fractured but there is a strange unity created out of this fracturing I like almost all of the characters though I sense that Hemingway wrote them to be disliked I l [...]


  19. What black thoughts he had been thinking He had been on the verge of suicide So writes Hemingway here in 1926 And in 1961 he does just that The book jacket tells me this is hilarious parody but this to me is a prime example of a book that has not aged well at best, and is definitely sorta creepy According to the book jacket, I was to find hilarious parody Perhaps with a doctorate in literature, I would have found it so in 1926 Then again, for Hemingway to parody other writers sometimes in his ow [...]


  20. I give this 1.5 stars I guess he did successfully make fun of the novel Anderson wrote, the friend who introduced him to all of the influential expats in Paris that helped him launch his career The book by Anderson was annoying and terrible in my opinion and so was the Torrents of Spring I m embarrassed for Hemingway though for making fun of Anderson s repetition and simple word usage considering he worked so hard to put in word repetition into his own writing Satire is less effective when it s [...]



  21. This was my first Hemingway I m not really sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn t this.I found it funny in places, however I didn t really get most of it From reading other reviews, it seems that Hemingway was trying to make fun of other works authors Maybe if I d read those I would have understood it .It was ok for what it was, but nothing special Again, from other reviews it seems I should read from him, and not take this as a true reflection of his work.


  22. Creo que es lo primero que leo de Hemingway y no me gusta Lo encontr torpe, los di logos, aunque tienen el estilo propio del autor, no logran la potencia que tiene en obras posteriores La prosa es algo desordenada, la historia parece no ir a ning n lado e incluso despu s de terminarlo no estoy seguro de si iba a un lado en particular Es m s como un chiste interno que otra cosa.
