I feel like awarding the great Hemingway only two stars has officially consigned me to the seventh circle of literary hell But I must be honest By this website s criteria two stars indicates that a book is okay and to me that describes this work perfectly.Hemingway himself is undeniably gifted I love his succinct style though at times it degenerates to downright caveman speak , his honest diction and his wonderful sense of humor That being said, he gets away with utterly ignoring most rules of w [...]

I m not a Hemingway guy I yearn for internal dialogue, various and ladened spiritual questioning, and deep psychology in my characters I prefer writing that is smooth and philosophical Hemingway gives me little of this.But the settings of this book were beautiful, and the dialogue between characters, poignant By the end, I found that Hemingway had craftily fucked with me to the point of my complete immersion into the novel It made me cry.

War is BoringHemingway s narrator writes not as a soldier but as a journalist soldier, channeling Hemingway himself, recording with precision and apparent objectivity the things that happen around him and to him practical and prosaic and always pragmatic about everything People die and bombs explode in the same paragraph as the one where breakfast was considered with equal interest, and he takes it all in his stride.As best as I can tell, the action of A Farewell to Arms takes place from 1916 an [...]

I just finished it, and I m disappointed And not only disappointed I m also bothered by it I guess I shouldn t be surprised at Hemingway s one dimensional, sexist portrayal of Catherine Barker, having read much of his other work, but somehow I still am Put simply, Catherine is a ridiculous figure, and it s no fault of her own Hemingway gives her no opportunity to sound like anything than a half crazy, desperate, fawning caricature with no real desires or opinions of her own How many times must [...]

In the fall of that year we rented a house in the mountains that looked down across the river to the village below The water of the river was turquoise and the village had a pretty campanile and beyond it rose mountains and beyond them still The man who owned our cottage lived next door and made his own dry cured sausage and we would go round and eat it by the fire and talk about how fine the sausage tasted On the hills all around there were deer, and in the evenings we would sit on the balcon [...]

Once, there was a time when I would have struggled through this one, convinced that since it was a classic , there must be some redeeming quality to it I d have struggled to the bitter end, hating it and , and I d have been disappointed by it even if there was something worthwhile at the end Because getting there was tedious, boring, painful, and annoying This book has a lot of very varied reviews and opinions Lots of people loved it, lots of people hated it I can see why It s a book that some [...]

It is a strong story, beautiful and sad at the same time It is a novel of war a novel of men who question, drink, go to the brothel of the front, who fight, who die or are seriously wounded, who try to understand where it leads them It is a love story that lasts an hour, a night, a life which fills the void of man s solitude with the horror of war which grows in the face of the absurdity of great words such as duty and honor.A rich vocabulary and a very particular rhythm made of small sentences [...]

My second book by Ernest Hemingway I liked this so much that I cried while finally closing the book.It must be the way Hemingway used his magic the vivid descriptions of his locale The war torn Italian picturesque villa and the use of rain as metaphor for hardship The ying yang kind of story the man s man virile American Tenente and the whimsical English woman Catherine The contrast between these two lovers is so opposite that s akin to the sun and moon that sometimes exist together in a dreamy [...]

I ve never read any Hemingway, so I thought to myself, Self, that is probably something you should remedy And now there are a couple of hours of my life that I will never get back The macho posturing, the awful dialogue if it were possible to have excised every word he put into the mouth of Catherine, I would have done so , the misogyny, the sometimes bizarre interactions between people whatever the hell he was trying to do, for me it read as if everyone was either 1 Certifiably insane, 2 an ali [...]

A Farewell to Arms sort of gives you the inkling that Hemingway s death will probably involve a shotgun It s just that sad Front to back, this is one of the mournful novels I ve read It s about Henry, an ambulance driver in World War I He is wounded and falls in love with Catherine, a nurse They exchange odd banter They fall in love in love during a summer in Milan but who wouldn t He knocks Catherine up, then returns to the front Unfortunately for him, he is fighting with Italians, and, as the [...]

I first read this book in high school Maybe because I was young, maybe because it was summer reading, or maybe because I read it immediately following The Invisible Man intense , I or less just slid through the book, enjoying the love story and not dwelling long enough in the war episodes to feel much of anything.The second time I read it, I didn t make it past the time in Milan I couldn t settle into the prose and, importantly, I couldn t handle Catherine I ll say just what you wish and I ll [...]

I finally read something from Hemingway besides the damn fish book For some reason I was prepared to be bored and or annoyed, but other than some corny period dialogue and a doormat leading lady, I found this to be cynical, suspenseful and poignant As in war, there can be no happy endings in life, and the catastrophic fall that I felt was coming for these people from very early in the novel came fast and hard and it got to me In the end I felt as gutted as the aftermath of a battle That was wha [...]

There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had dignity.If Voltaire had read Hemingway s famous war novel, I d wager that he would pronounce that it is neither about war nor a novel Compared to All Quiet on the Western Front, for example, the descriptions of war in this book are ludicrously tame The vast majority of the time the narrator is not even at the front and when he is, he is far behind the front lines, driving an ambulance The bulk of the [...]

There is something so fulfilling in Mr Hemingway s achievement in A Farewell to Arms that one is left speculating as to whether another novel will follow in this manner, and whether it does not complete both a period and a phase.The story begins with such beautiful mannerisms which is a subtle way to undertake a book where the centre stage is that of war, with the love making between the young American hero, Henry, a volunteer in the Italian Ambulance Service, and Catherine Barkley, an English n [...]

This is the story of an American serving as a non combatant ambulance driver in the Italian army during the Great War, the injury he suffered, his lengthy convalescence, relationships and experiences of that war A story which is inspired by at least in part if not exactly portraying Hemingway s own experiences fulfilling the same role Apparently this was a period which Hemingway viewed as one of the most formative experiences of his life.This is the only Hemingway that I have read thus far and c [...]
