Try Garden of Eden. It took him over 20 years to write the book and it was incomplete at his death. It was brought to the publishers by his wife and published about 25 years after his death. It is pretty contreversial because some say that the editing changed the way Hemingway was trying to shape the book. Nonetheless it is a great look into his opinions about relationships between man and woman, gender roles and reverse gender roles even more apparent than it is in Sun Also Rises. I think it was more straigth forward and more "feminene" compared to SAR. It was the first Hemingway book I've read and it quite shocked me.

I'm nearly finished with Crime and Punishment right now. I read it two years ago & decided to revisit it, and it was worth it, but I like Notes from Underground and The Brothers Karamazov better. I heard The Idiot is Dostoevsky's best, but I dunno I haven't read it yet. But it probably is, since Iggy Pop even named his best album after it!
I wanna read Anna Karenina this summer, 'cuz I never read Tolstoy, and he's the other big important nineteenth century Russian novelist.
I'm currently reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I'm a little over 100 pages in and it's really good so far. Have any of you guys read it?
