A Farewell To Arms
Set in the waning days of the First World War A Farewell to Arms (1929) is the epic love story of American ambulance driver Frederic Henry and British V.A. D. Catherine Barkley, who are drawn together yet torn apart by the tides of war.
Drawing on his experiences as an ambulance driver in the First World War, A Farewell to Arms is considered to be Ernest Hemingway’s bleakest novel, depicting the futility of war and the cynicism of soldiers during wartime, but remains one of his best known and loved literary works. It has been adapted for radio, stage, television, and screen, most notably the 1932 Academy-Award nominated film starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes.

I hate this book so much. It is dreary and the plot makes 0 sense. It is like reading 4 books at one time. Either focus on the love story or the war. They don't relate in anyway.

This is hands down the worst book I have ever read, and I have to read it for school in which I have loved every other book. I have never read a book this bad, if you have a choice don't read it. It makes 0 sense, the book took no planning at all I imagine.
