I finished reading this about a week ago for the second time. It had been about 20 years since I read it last.

I just love Ernest Hemingway. He seems like such a tough man, but he is very sensitive and in a way a romatic.

Great story which takes place during World War I, in Italy. This is a sad story which tugs the heart strings especially in the end. A romance takes place between an American in the Italian Army, Fredric Henry and an English medical aid, Catherine Barkley.

At times I laughed at times I cried. Very moving book by a very talented writer.

I don't want to give too many spoilers but I would recommend reading this book as it is wonderful!

Apokripos (apokalypse) Totally with you Emilee...
I like most of all in this book is the inimitable Hemingway prose style...
I think this were Hemingway truly is in his finest...of course with the exception of The Old Man and the Sea which is a master piece of all proportion...
