The best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Hemingway's frank portrayal of the love between Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, caught in the inexorable sweep of war, glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature, while his description of the German attack on Caporetto--of lines of fired men marching in the rain, hungry, weary, and demoralized--is one of the greatest moments in literary history.

Classic. Had not read it since high school. I think I appreciate Hemingway's writing more as an adult than I did as a high school student.

This is my first Hemingway book... At first I found it a little boring and had to get used to the style it was written in. But after a while, I started to enjoy the quirky and repetitive dialogues. I am glad I stuck to the end, as I got to enjoy reading each page. The ending was unexpected, but it didn't shock me as I figured mid-book that Hemingway wasn't an ordinary author.
