I'm a fairly voracious reader and somehow this book had always passed me by so I decided to catch it up. I cannot believe that this is considered a classic. All right, from time to time, the writing is excellent but overall I would have to say that the plot is puerile and the writing is generally infantile. I can think of at least half a dozen books that will give someone a better taste and feel of the First World War: for a Canadian experience, try The Wars (Findley); for a German outlook, All Quiet on the Western Front (Remarque). Additionally, I'd recommend Birdsong (Faulkes) and Regeneration (Barker), and don't forget to read Dr Zhivago (Pasternak)!. And that's saying nothing about the tons of wonderful poetry...

This book sounds beautiful read aloud--share it with a partner or friend this way!

I read this as a teenager, then again as an adult. Definitely worth a second time around.

I read this book because it is a well-known classic, but I got half way through it and could not finish it (and I enjoy reading all sorts of novels). I thought it was boring and the dialogue between the main characters just didn't interest me.

My first Hemingway novel and it was excellent. Hemingway's knowledge of the english language and his simplicity is what makes this book a classic. The book was an excellent read, and it certaintly won't be my last Hemingway novel.
