Micro Mention "A Farewell to Arms"

Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway’s “A Farewell to Arms” is one of those sneaky sticks you right in the feels kind of book. At first, it seems to be a pretty straightforward war novel/romance with an understated style, but boy, when Hemingway wants you to feel loss, you feel it.

Despite being known for his sparse, straightforward prose, I never felt like this novel lacked detail. Truthfully, I was so wrapped up in the emotional lives of the two main characters to notice. It's a poignant story of love during wartime and the beauty of life when faced with the contradiction of a world war. Hemingway really isn't one to gloss over reality, though, and he captures that most of life's events happen a lot because of chance, both good and bad.
