[Novel] For Whom the Bell Tolls (Ernest Hemingway)

for-whom-the-bell-tolls

I’m not the biggest fan of Ernest Hemingway, but this depiction of Spanish Civil War and absurdity of conflict is definitely my favorite work of his so far.

Positive: Negative:
Relatively interesting, profound characters Characters and prose tend to ramble from time to time killing the pacing
Relatively interesting plot The romance feels a bit shallow
Enlightening on the history of Spanish Civil War
Thought-provoking on war and absurdity of conflict
