Okay.

I personally thought it was okay.
It only got interesting for me towards the end.

Boring in the beginning, considerable and touching in the second part

by MrsMojito1, November 06, 2014

I personally found the first half of the book a bit monotonous, and Hemingways distanced writing almost glacial. The second half of the book, particularly after the beginning of the Italian retreat, was far more involving with interesting reflections on war, life and death.
The last part made me shed a few tears, it was impetuous and expressed Henry´s desperation, and eventually human desperation, perfectly. I´m quite ambivalent about the book, but the last chapters are definitely worth reading!
