Ernest Hemingway did more to influence the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. My impression is that To Have and Have Not was written in the same way but with breaks in between because the mood and tone flips almost as if there are different stories glued in to one.

Ernest Hemingway did more to influence the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established him as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. This I found a little off-putting. I like the freedom of an adventure book and the fact that often the characters are sort of bullet proof.

His machine-like style was precise and austere, but he also had a deft and gentle turn of phrase which gave his work its own peculiar beauty and power. This book deals with the exploration of gender-roles and androgyny as well as the contempt and hatred that is felt between the newly-wed couple. Cover courtesy of Penguin Modern Classics.

To Have and Have Not is a novel by Ernest Hemingway (publ. 1937) about Harry Morgan, a fishing boat captain out of Key West, Florida. The novel depicts Harry as an ordinary working man of the Depression Era, forced by dire economic forces into the black-market activity of running contraband between Cuba and Florida. A wealthy fishing charter customer (one of the "Have's") bilks Harry by slipping away without paying after a three-week fishing trip, leaving Harry destitute

To Have and Have Not is the dramatic, brutal story of Harry Morgan, an honest boat owner who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who swarm the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair. In this harshly realistic, yet oddly tender and wise novel, Hemingway perceptively delineates the personal struggles of both the "haves" and the "have nots" and creates one of the most subtle.

A somewhat neglected Hemingway masterpiece finds its way into today's readership. This is a gritty tale of several tragedies of the Depression Era, which Hemingway depicted with an unfailing sense of the injustices, humiliations that the "Conchs" (the Keys' residents as they were called then) suffered. The novel is readable, but tough. Hemingway deploys all his art, his unequaled spare style never failing him, making this an absorbing tale that keep the reader alert at all times. Incidentally, one could also think of Howards Hawks' movie by the same name, with Bogart and Bacall at their best, and a script written by William Faulkner. Place this on your reading list, if you are a Hemingway fan.
I first read this book when I was living and writing in Greece. I was not yet 30. It was interesting to me not only because I had always been profoundly influenced by Hemingway, but also because I had lived in Key West in the late '60's while in the Navy.

I just reread it now as I begin my 70th year. The story was deeper and darker to me now. I still marveled at Hemingway's detailed knowledge of the waters off Cuba and Key West and the descriptions that are so accurate and true.

The characters that appear in this novel are very three dimensional and the interweaving of their stories build up to and support the tragedy the plot pulls the reader toward.

The author also plays with differing points of view, narration, even streams of consciousness that deepen the story through it's twisting course downward.
Although most readers will disagree, this is my favorite Hemingway novel. I rate it four stars as opposed to five only because the changes of narrative view will bother some readers, although I am fine with it. I like this particular Hemingway because I found the main character to be the most engaging. He is a man who doesn't like to compromise, but is finding that approach to life difficult to maintain during the Depression, and his actions become increasingly desperate as time goes by. I also like the setting, which is Key West, Florida. This is the only Hemingway novel set in the U.S. "To Have and Have Not" starts out with a great action scene, which is actually a bit unusual for Hemingway. He tells it in beautiful and dramatic fashion and I found myself wishing he had done it more often. It ends with a view of a part of society that was completely out of reach of the main character, and of most of us. The view of that part of society still resonates today. What is that old saying? The more things change, the more they stay the same...
Another Hemingway masterpiece. Could we really expect less of him? The prose is amazing and the story is captivating. Sad but hilarious at certain points.
This is as close to action-adventure as you will get with Hemingway. A hardbitten hard-talking robust roiling ride of a novel it is a tense and intense gripping and memorable read enlivened and elevated by Hemingway's humanity and compassion. There is much breathless action, a host of characters, "haves and have nots", and striking passages of singular and moving beauty. And it is like most of Hemingway life looked at in the face., and so, not always pretty.

No one can make you feel like Hemingway does and no one closes better. His writing may seem daunting to readers, but the beauty of his work is in it's simplicity. It is easy to read and too easy to capture you. But be careful, Hemingway had a very bleak view and few of his endings are happy.
I've got to agree with Papa on this one, this is definitely not Hemingway's best work. This novel is actually two short stories and one novella, with the main character Harry Morgan (a smuggler and fisherman going between Cuba and the Florida Keys) linking the three together. The short stories were written well before the rest of the text, then tied together to make a single novel. The first two `sections' (short stories) are fine adventure-type tales about the shady characters of pre-WWII Cuba. The novella starts off as an adventure tale as well in the same vein, but evolves into an introspective story about the value of life, the things the people hold valuable, and what it means to lose them. The latter half of the novella has very little to do with the first half or the other two short sections. I got the impression that EH changed his mind about what he wanted to do with this novel halfway through writing it, but instead of editing the first half for consistency, he just gave up. This makes the overall tale disjointed and puzzling. There are definitely some glimmers of Hemingway at his best in this novel (e.g. the chapter in which Morgan faces the bank robbers on his boat, or the last chapter about what people hold valuable and loss), but EH would have been better served to write to separate, complete tales about each of the threads. I would agree with one of the other reviewer's comments that if this is EH's worst, it is still better than most author's best, but I think that some of the glowing reviews are grossly overstated. This is a flawed work by a great writer in my view, not on the same planet as `For Whom the Bell Tolls' and other EH greats. This is also one of the few cases in which the movie is better than the book.
To be honest there is nothing I can add to all the good things that people have said about this classic book by Hemingway who wrote it many years ago.

If you like Hemingway and have not read this one yet you will not be disappointed.

This book is not like the movie but i was not expecting that. I really liked the movie too with Humphrey Bogart and Walter Brennan. This book does not have the happy ending of the movie and it's main character did not fight Nazi's like the movie one did.

Like with many of Hemingway's books he throws in many little tidbits of information that gives you insight into the people of that time period.

All in all I highly recommend this book to all. I was happy to see that there were only a few errors in the Kindle version.
