Author: Ernest Hemingway. The greatest American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms cemented Ernest Hemingway’s reputation as one of the most important novelists of the twentieth century. Drawn largely from Hemingway’s own experiences, it is the story of a volunteer ambulance driver wounded on the Italian front, the beautiful British nurse with whom he falls in love, and their journey to find some small sanctuary in a world gone mad with war. By turns beautiful and tragic, tender and harshly realistic, A Farewell to Arms is one of the supreme literary achievements of our time.

Ernest Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" is one of the books I have re-read the most throughout my life, along with Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises," Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" and "Under Western Eyes" and Joyce's "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Ma.

  • I have never written an Amazon review before, but that is because I have never been so disappointed. That is because Amazon appears to have started using a different publisher for this book just at the beginning of this month, but kept all of the reviews and ratings from the previous publisher. This copy is absolute TRASH. The typeset is so terrible that it renders the book practically unreadable. They literally cut some words off in the middle and then print them in the middle of the next page. Some paragraphs are segmented into a number of chunks that follow no rhyme or reason. Not to mention the numerous typos throughout. I simply do not understand how this is acceptable.

  • This is my favorite novel. I am a huge fan of Hemingway's "Never use a large word, where a simple word will work," writing style. If you're unfamiliar with this, take a look inside to see what I mean. The style is slow, and relatively uneventful.

    This is not a book for children. They could read it, but would perhaps miss many of the main themes. There is certainly rampant alcohol-use throughout the book.

    I love the book because Hemingway won't give the reader the ending they're expecting. He forces the reader to consider the the book over and over again. I may be simply written, and not for the Shakespearean-read scholar, but enjoyable and steady.

  • Though retired now and with all the books I have read it occurred to me that the only Hemmingway I had tried was an audio of Old Man And The Sea. Across The River and Into the Trees’ appeared to be a good place to start, it was. The introduction by Acino Acinonyx almost made me put this Kindle version away for a later time both because it was apparent nobody had read the introduction, corrected the flaws made during conversion, or checked the facts, which were very often wrong and contradictory. Skip that part, it isn’t worth your time.

    As for the novel itself, I enjoyed it. It is more about the characters than any deep story but the plot twists move you along at a decent pace. I had read about Hemmingway’s “ice berg” style, which is very interesting, but what really appealed to me is how this ebbed and flowed without the drastic actions found in many of our current day novels. As a writer I know that that isn’t an easy thing to do. I also know that today’s writers often focus on the story while Hemmingway’s characters become real, you know them well by the end of the book.

    I’m not saying that the current crop of writers are bad, Hemmingway is just different and different from the old “classic” authors in that this is not a series of scenes which may or may not be related. He strips out side stories and keeps you moving though you are not sure to where.

    I highly recommend you read this, especially if you are a writer and even if you have read Hemmingway before without satisfaction. This is a very good read.

  • Ernest Hemingway really was a great writer. His plain-spoken style is symbolic of the main character's values, as well as his own.

    This novel will shred you to pieces. Hemingway was trying to communicate a specific emotion with this novel -somewhere between hope, hopelessness, and numbness- and he really achieves it. Behind this novel is the plain and constant shock of modern warfare, and the strange way that affects men's minds, for better or worse.

    Beautiful novel. A pillar in modern literature on the rite of manhood.

  • While I have read the story before and it is amazing, this book was an absolute waste of money. I spent the money expecting to get the entire book yet I only received half as if the publisher decided I can do this and sell a lot more. There we multiple typos too many to count. The final issue was there were no page numbers. after buying this book for a college course I was disappointed that this was a waste of time and money. I would recommend looking for a pdf copy off of Google or perhaps go to your local library it is much more useful than buying this particular group.

  • Ernest Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" is one of the books I have re-read the most throughout my life, along with Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises," Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" and "Under Western Eyes" and Joyce's "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man." In many ways, it is to me, as 'perfect' as any novel I have ever read. Its structure is flawless, the characters unforgettable, and the writing is bold and terse, hard and yielding all at the same time. I never fail to learn something new each time I read this wonderful work of art. If I was to teach a class on how to write a novel, this would be the book I would assign to my class.

    The Hemingway Library Edition of "A Farewell to Arms" I received as a gift also came with an Appendix that included the thirty-nine other endings Hemingway considered for the novel. Many are quite telling and a two were used in the serialized versions that appeared in Scribner magazines before the actual publication of the book. I simply love this book.
