The ideal introduction to the genius of Ernest Hemingway, The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories contains ten of Hemingway's most acclaimed and popular works of short fiction. Selected from Winner Take Nothing, Men Without Women, and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories, this collection includes "The Killers," the first of Hemingway's mature stories to be accepted by an American periodical; the autobiographical "Fathers and Sons," which alludes, for the first time in Hemingway's career, to his father's suicide; "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," a "brilliant fusion of personal observation, hearsay and invention," wrote Hemingway's biographer, Carlos Baker; and the title story itself, of which Hemingway said: "I put all the true stuff in," with enough material, he boasted, to fill four novels. Beautiful in their simplicity, startling in their originality, and unsurpassed in their craftsmanship, the stories in this volume highlight one of America's master storytellers at the top of his form.

3.0 The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories
Just too many hunting stories to be a well-balanced Hemingway collection. "Snows of Kilimanjaro" is wonderful, just all the other manly war and hunting stories seemed over the top all at once. I mean, that's what Hemingway is known for but it became repetitive.

3.0 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro' by Ernest Hemingway (1939)
Ernest Hemingway, The Snows of Kilimanjaro (London: Arrow Books, 2004), 137pp This collection of short stories was a bit hit and miss; some, like 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro', 'Indian Camp' and 'My Old Man' are fantastic, fully-realised little gems that have a strong grasp of thematic storytelling. ...

OK, It is official. Ernest Hemingway is just not for me. I read this book because I am doing a three month "Give an author a second chance" challenge, and I couldn't think of anyone who I needed to give a second chance more than Hemingway. I have only read two books by Hemingway in my whole life,...

I think Hemingway was at his best in the short story format rather than in novels and Snows is as close to a Hemingway "best of" collection as you will find. "The Killers" and "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" are classics of the format.
