by Ernest Hemingway
Open iTunes to Buy
The best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Hemingway's frank portrayal of the love between Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, caught in the inexorable sweep of war, glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature, while his description of the German attack on Caporetto, of lines of fired men marching in the rain, hungry, weary, and demoralized, is one of the greatest moments in literary history. A story of love and pain, of loyalty and desertion, A Farewell to Arms, written when he was 30 years old, represents a new romanticism for Hemingway.

I first discovered Ernest Hemingway nearly 40 years ago as a sophomore in AP English. Our teacher, Mrs Audrey Lofgren, described Hemingway's life and then assigned us short stories to read. I've been hooked on literature ever since.
John Slattery's reading and his persona of the characters brought this book to life for me. As I learned from Mrs Lofgren, then again from Mr Slattery, the power of the well written and spoken word is supreme.
As a combat veteran this book causes me to revisit my memories of the unnecessary waste, tragedy and futileness of war. Like the character, I've had my doubts and losses due to conflict as well. Mr Slattery's personification of the book's characters who experiences these emotions was spot on.
Thank you Mr Slattery. And most of all, thank you Mrs Lofgren.
Good book and Great read
I had read this book in high school and wanted to listen to again. The performance was very good. I was easily sucked into the story. Hemingway always has such short concise thoughts. Anyway, would highly recommend it.
