Hemingway - first rate classic
This is the second time reading this wonderful book. Hemingway has an amazing ability to convey human emotion through his characters thoughts and actions. Not for the faint of heart but a must read. One of the very best novels I have ever read
Hemingway at his best
In my opinion one of the best works he ever wrote. The story, drawn from his wartime experience as a journalist covering the Spanish civil war focuses on a group of rebels from the republic living in the mountains fighting the fascists. In particular the protagonist, Robert Jordan is the central figure of the story.
Hemingway pulls you into the story in such a way you can almost smell the pine trees, hear the planes flying over head, and experience all the highs and lows of war as if you were there, in the mountains with the rebels.
Read it, you won’t be disappointed.
