Hemingway and dialogues…

I have been making slow progress with Hemingway’s “For whom the bell tolls” – it’s a splendid read, but I can’t seem to find the time to spare more than half-hour any given day. I love books that have a lot of dialogue – well written dialogue, that is. My considered opinion is nobody wrote/writes dialogue better than Hemingway. Local, real, effortless, character-defining and often times profound without one even realizing it. It is the conversations in the book that pull you into the story.
