Hemingway brings the chaos and passions of twentieth century political war vividly to life in this epic. If only he'd stopped there without cooking up an absurd love story to go with it. Had EH edited out the Robert/Maria hooey he'd have created a novel of war to be compared with any.

This was my first exposure to Hemingway, and I liked it quite a bit. I found the story very engaging and enjoyed the depth of the characters.

My wife did not find it as interesting and has not finished reading it - in general it may be more appealing to men than women.

Precise and elegiac in the opening pages, ponderous and self-indulgent for much of the middle, and finally, at its end, heartbreakingly genuine. It's fashionable these days to poke fun at Hemingway's excesses, but when the stars aligned, my god that man could surely write.

I had read this book many years ago & did not remember it at all. In my re-reading of Hemingway, I think this has been my favorite so far. I learned things about a time and place I was not familiar with and was fascinated by the characters. It was very down to earth.

Hemingway draws you into the thinking and feelings of a group of partisan fighters operating behind the fascist lines and explores their reasons for what they do. He also reveals the rural Spanish people, their suspicions, lives and culture at that time. A great read.

I just re-read this after twenty years. Since then, I've been to my own war as a Marine Infantryman. Papa's characterization of interacting with indigenous forces is spot on, as is his storytelling. Compelling use of language to convey emotion. Fantastic read.

I very much enjoyed this book, it is not one of my favorites, but I am very happy I read it. I recommend it for people who enjoy Ernest Hemingway as a writer, but if you are new to him, I would do a little bit of research on this book before deciding to read it.

The old writing style using thou and thus etc. Took some getting to. Also Spanish interjection hard to follow at times. Story great. Contemplation of suicide by main character interesting given ultimate demise of author. A hard read but worth the effort.
