THIS IS AN ABRIDGED VERSION, WHICH IS NOT MENTIONED HERE ON AMAZON. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. Whoever put this abridged version online wants to make money off poor Ernest Hemingway. Probably, the book is still in copyright but for some reason it is lawful to create an abridged version.
THIS IS DISGUSTING.
AMAZON, why don't you pay attention to this kind of thing???
HOW MANY OTHER CLASSICS HAVE BEEN STOLEN THIS WAY??

Be careful what you purchase. This edition is abridged and disgraceful. Papa would not be proud.

Just a quick note: I recently reread this when I was reminded of the complexities of the Spanish Civil War by a magazine article. The book did what I dimly remembered it did: it showed the local, human dimension of the war rather than the history book battle of ideologies we usually see. What I hadn’t remmbered was the subtlety and complexity of the love story. I’ve always thought Hemingway’s ability to present love has been underrated by many people who prefer to focus on the unwillingness of many of his characters to talk about their feelings. It’s true, his characters generally don’t have much to say on the subject, and even their inner monologues tend to be sparse, but Hemingway still manages to express his characters’ deep, vital and nuanced feelings. I think the lack of verbiage is part a reflection of the view expressed by many of his characters that it doesn’t do to talk about significant things too much and part the simple fact that the characters themselves don’t understand what they’re feeling.
Hemingway was a fabulous writer, and much of his work, though clearly rooted in his time period, still stands up to scrutiny today.

I am talking about kindle version. this book is full of typos. I told amazon to revise this book but it is still same.

Do not buy this book, it is worthless. Prabhat prakashan and amazon are kidding us.

This is an abridged version, which they do not state anywhere. The beauty and cohesion of Hemingway is lost in a lousy combination of shortening a story and butchering a language

Where is the rest of the book? Most of the content is missing. I have hard cover copy of this book. It will be nice to add this very important book to my Kindle collection. This digital form has only a quarter of it.

An abomination--the Kindle edition, that is. The very first sentence is inaccurate. Is there no way to get back my 99 cents? I won't be reading this, ever.

The kindle edition I read was a "knock-off" Hemingway. The text was weird and not lined up. When there was an obvious expletive in the dialogue, it actually was deleted and the word "obscenity" was placed.

As other reviewers have stated, this is an abridged version.

I read in amazement, knowing of Hemingway 's fame I still felt surprise at his writing ability. When I read his Paris book he would return to his wife after a long day of writing by longhand. I now understand how difficult that must have been: to constantly be thinking of and feeling the tiny details while laboriously writing each word.
This story of the Spanish civil war comes to the reader with such descriptive details that one can feel the dirt on their clothes and under the fingernails, and the cold dew of the morning. After all it is the details which causes a book to be readable and believable.
