A Farewell to Arms - Ernest Hemingway

Product Description(
Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep.

MY THOUGHTS:  This is my book clubs choice for November.  Although I've wanted to read classic books, I have a hard time staying on task and finishing the book.  I don't really like the way the classic books are written, they totally different from the way books are written now.  This story is about a man  remembering  a woman he was in love with.  But he's also dying and telling the story to someone.   The author weaves a beautiful love story from  the first world war.  I give this book 3.....

This book is for 2 of my reading challenges.......
