Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield - weary, demoralised men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion - this gripping, semi-autobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all of the alternative endings together for the first time, along with early drafts of other essential passages, offering new insight into Hemingway's craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring the Nobel Prize winner's own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the author's son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author's grandson Sean Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration.Hide synopsis

Hemingway's talent surfaces when reading the cut to the bones prose that nakedly tells the truth of a terrible time. The War to End All Wars is right around the corner and the writing pattern strikes a pattern that makes you become a part of the action, and you start to feel like a character in the ...
I am about 3/4ths of the way through this book and find myself a little disappointed as it does not meet my standards of Hemingway, someone who I admire as an author. The book seems to ramble around at times and appears to exhibit a different style of writing than others I have read by this author.
