Very Good. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. 320 p. Intended for college/higher education audience.
Ex-Library with usual stamps, marks etc. An EX LIBRARY copy in VERY GOOD condition. May have some library identification marks/stamps. This book is in VERY GOOD overall condition, with only minor signs of previous ownership.
It is a good experience to get into a book worth reading. This is one of them. Also, the subject of war and the people involved and occasionally uninvolved in it is timeless.

cut to the bones
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 story.

A Farewell to Arms
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.
