Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

I think this is the best of all Hemingway books, and I've read most of them.

I read my mom's old hardback copy in 1984. It was so moving, I think it's what convinced me to go back to college. (I'd dropped out for a while. I returned to community college when I was 24. James Jones was also a big influence.)

I haven't seen a copy of this one while out during my used book hunting trips, which is weird. I guess there's not too many old paperback copies in circulation, which seems a shame.


At Amazon, Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls: A Novel.
