A Farewell to Arms: A Review

What a novel!!!

This is one of the easier to read books on the Modern Library’s list, but don’t let that fool you, it is WELL worth a read. Based in WWI, this novel follows Frederic Henry, an American in the Italian Army. There are a lot of psuedo-gory moments during the war scenes in the novel, but the story mostly focuses on Henry’s romance with Catherine, a British nurse.

Without ruining any part of the novel, all I can say is that their relationship is an odd one and says a lot about the state of romance during WWI.

As with most of the recent reads, I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking for a quick read involving war, romance, and a little bit of the oddities that make up human nature. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
