    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 writing which I admire at times, but let s face it, some of those rules are there for a REASON This book is overflowing with extreme run on sentences, constant use of qualifiers I think very might actually be his VERY favorite word , adjectives even NOUNS used four or five times in the same paragraph, and long stretches of dialogue involving than two speakers with absolutely no indication of who is saying what if I hadn t been reading a library book, I would have color coded the darn thing And besides style, the story itself just didn t grab me I didn t give two farts about the self absorbed, unthinking, unfeeling protagonist or his codependent, psychologically damaged doormat of a girlfriend Thi...

    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 I read lines like, I ll say just what you wish and I ll do what you wish and then you will never want any other girls, will you issue from her lips Does Hemingway believe women think and talk like this, or does he mean to make his female characters sound like would be wife pets I just read a review below that describes Henry and Catherine s dialogue as incantations, the point being that the two, especially Catherine, are trying to will themselves to be happy despite an over whelming sense of despair It s an interesting point,and definitely makes reading the scenes with the two of them palatable But as much as I d like to think that that was what Hemingway was going for, I don t know As for the rest of the book, I suppose an argument could be made for its...

    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 boo...

    War is Boring Hemingway 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 and before the end of the war Place references and political references come and go without troubling the narrator too much he is not to be bothered with such details His context is not simply this war, but all wars and the notions of honor, heroism and patriotism all of which he looks at with pristine incomprehension.War always generates backlash, even from the Mahabharata and the Iliad to the many anti war epics over the ages the honor and glory that war is supposed to provide is questioned in its aftermath The bloodlust and th...

    Damn That ending Even whilst still dusting off the cover it s been lying around for ages I already knew it s finale It s simply been impossible to ignore Even cropping up in three or four films I have seen over the years Knowing it is one thing, but actually reading it is quite another So, the big question is did this in anyway tarnish the novel for me In a word, No As once I truly got stuck into Hemingway s compulsive narrative all was forgotten His presentation of war was just as remarkable as his sincerity of presenting us with love Both leading characters were simply two of the 20th century s most memorable the all American hero Henry, a volunteer in the Italian Ambulance Service, and the sweet natured English nurse Catherine Barkley who adds a subtle feminine charm throughout the novel All the descriptions of life on the WW1 front and in the hospitals, the talk of the officers, privates, and doctors, are crisp, clear and so natural, making for a convincing narrative the whole way through, even though Henry perhaps felt a little too mature and experienced for a young man Catherine I saw as the credible character, she was most skilfully modelled as the et...

    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 balcony of our cottage and wrap ourselves in blankets for the cold, and if we looked one way we would see the deer and if we looked the other way we would see the village down at the bottom of the valley.The village was called Kobarid but it also had names in other languages The Germans called it Karfreit and the Italians called it Caporetto and I said to Hannah that it was never a good sign when so many other languages had names for one little village Sure enough we found a museum in the village dedicated to a big battle that had taken place there during the...

    Well, that was disappointing.For several months I ve been focused on reading classic literature, mostly as a way to dig deep and enrich my life during these trying political times Until now, it has been an incredibly rewarding experience This Hemingway novel was my first dud I wanted to like this book I ve been reading on World War I this past year and thought A Farewell to Arms would fit both my WWI interest and my goal of appreciating classics But ol Hem as I learned to call him in A Moveable Feast, a book of his I did like didn t make it easy for me when he wrote the character of Catherine Barkley Catherine plays the love interest in this novel, and she is so insipid, silly and annoying that I started dreading this book.The story follows Frederic Henry, an American serving as an ambulance driver in the Italian army during the war He meets Catherine, who is a British nurse, and they fall in love Catherine eventually becomes pregnant, and they manage to escape to Switzerland The ending of this book is depressing, as are most war novels.But the sad ending isn t why I disliked this book so much Hemingway is famous for his terse prose, but I think in this book it does him a disservice The characters are two dimensional, the war scenes lacked grit, and the whole novel just felt flat to me Hem does have a few famous lines th...
