Book Review :: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

As much as I would like to give a properly analysis to this American classic, my reaction can be summed up best by this scene from Silver Linings Playbook.  *Spoiler Alert: He gives away the ending.*

Hemingway's writing style was new and different for me.  My mind took a while to adjust to the cadence and context of conversations versus thoughts.  One minute you're in Henry's mind.  The next you're reading dialogue - without the punctuation.  It was odd, but by mid-book I really enjoyed it.

I'm making my way on to The Sun Also Rises, which I've heard is a completely different feel.  We'll see if I want to throw that book out the window as well.
