The Killers by Ernest Hemingway

This reading shows  two characters plotting to kill a boxer. Nick, the protagonist tells the boxer about his planned death but is shock to find that the boxer doesn’t care. I feel like there’s hardly any emotion to this story. It’s just dark, weary, and the characters are very content except Nick.  It really blows my mind that the boxer could care less about his death. He must think that it’s his time and there’s nothing no one can do about it.  Nothing came to light in this reading. I felt that there was nothing anyone could do to change the outcome of the story or the way Ole Andreson thought.  The way things were planned out to be was the way they were suppose to be iike Andreson’s death.
