i feel sorry for all you people who thought that this book was bad. this is one of the best books ever written. anything written by hemingway is going to be an excellent book. if you like hemingway there's no way that you won't like this. it's classic hemingway and it is a great love story. it's one of the saddest books that i have ever read.

Bad reading; the descriptions are okay, but the characters stink. The heroine doesn't seem lovable and great, she's crazy and stupid. It's bad. The drawing on the cover is as good as it gets

It wasn't too bad for a book I had to read for school but it lacked the reality of All Quiet on the Western Front and Henry didn't seem to accomplish anything through the story.

One of Hemingway's best, and one of the best war/romance novels of all time. Sparse and beautiful language, great detail, vivid characters, tragic end. An excellent novel.

Simply put, one of the greatest love stories ever told. The writing style, simple, basic, almost journalistic, is vintage Hemingway. It changed the way we write.

This book "A Farewell to Arms" was a on and on book. It really made no sense to me.

I'm about two thirds through this book, and it's one of the most dissapointing reads of my life. If your introduction to Hemingway was The Old Man and the Sea, my advice to you is to read him no further, because you've read his best work.
Firstly, his much touted writing style is horrible! His prose is flat, toneless, jarring, passionless and distant. Frankly I'm amazed by how he can make the most simple and childlike descriptions so turgid and painful to read! Secondly, the dialogue, as has been rightly pointed out by the more honest reviewers here, is incredibly boring and repetitive, and contrary to some opinions, totally unrealistic. Thirdly, the characters are two-dimensional and uninvolving, making it harder still to bear their awful dialogue!
Just because Hemingway was spartan with his prose does not mean that he had an impressive style! Just because his style forces the reader to engage their imagination more than other, more descriptive authors does not mean he was a great writer, just a clever manipulator. To suggest that readers find his style dissapointing "because they are more used to Stephen King" is arrogance in the extreme! I find his style of writing dissapointing simply because it is bad!!
All in all, I feel that Hemingway is totally overrated and undeserving of the praise the literary establishment sees fit to lavish upon him. He is, however, the perfect post-modern author!! The birth of the reader is the death of the writer, it's the reader that attaches all the symbolism and meaning, which is perfect for Hemingway, because he conveys SO LITTLE with his writing! He leaves all the work to us! What an artful con, permeated by those who suffer from The Emperors New Clothes syndrome...
Wow, I really hate this book...

"A Farewell to Arms" zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Werken Hemingways und stellt für jeden Literaturliebhaber ein Muß dar. Mir ging es hier aber leider genau so wie mit "The Old Man and the Sea", die Geschichte wird wahnsinnig schleppend erzählt und ich habe selten so lange für ein Buch dieses Umfanges gebraucht...
Wer neben dem Effekt des Genusses eines Klassikers auch Wert auf gute Unterhaltung legt sollte lieber nicht zugreifen und auf andere Titel umschwenken. Die einzige Passage in der richtige Spannung aufkommt (der Rückzug) ist leider viel zu schnell vorbei und man ist wieder im alten Trott gefangen.
Wie bei nahezu allen Hemingway-Werken braucht man keine große Angst vor der englischen Sprache haben, E.H. schreibt flüssig zu lesendes und leicht verständliches Englisch, weshalb ich bei ihm eigentlich immer zum Kauf des Originals statt einer Übersetzung raten würde.

The world is convinced Hemingway is the master of the English Language. He is, I will agree, in the SHORT STORY. Hemingway's minimalist structure and technique is perfect for a ten-twenty page story, but just becomes repetitive and obtrusive in a novel. Farwell to Arms feels like Hemingway took a short story idea, S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D it, and wrote the book. Of course, it's very easy to read and understand. But, it is DULL and extremely tiresome to read. Hemingway's characters probably are the worst thing about this book (and 99.9 percent of all Hemingway). Some praise his examples of the 'lost generation', I laugh. All his female characters are cardboard pieces, continually demure, and in need of men. (Note most of Hemingway's dialouge for women can be transferred into this sentence(s): 'I need you, I love you, and I will do whatever you want.) His male characters ('the lost generation') are all the same in every single thing he writes, for Hemingway mastered the formula character. If you want a good example of Hemingway, don;t bother reading this long short story, read 'The Short Happy Life of Frances Macomber'<an actual short story>. The rest is just formula.
