Not my usual pick. The story was during war time, but it was very romantic. No filth. I have listened to the book over and over. I always hear something new to think about. I miss the characters.
I wish there were a book two. I didn't want it to end.
A little bit of action, a little bit of romance, a little bit of suspense and an ending that won't be forgotten.
Loved it. Really puts life into perspective.
I hesitate to attempt a review of such a classic work. I shall only say that after listening to this book I attempted to speak for an entire day without using a contraction or passive voice. It was enlightening.
I like to listen to audio books whilst mountain biking.
Very moving story, superbly told. I really enjoyed the accents, but also the way he captures the first person.
This is my favorite Hemingway story.
The innocence of young adulthood is smashed by the horror and chaos of war.
John Slattery narrates this story with elegance and skill. His ability to mimic an Italian accent, a British accent and a Scottish accent really made the story come alive.
I would definately recommend this book to a friend. It was gripping, moving, and sad.
When the two main characters escaped from Italy to Switzerland during a snow storm on a small boat over a lake.
We had not listen to any other John Slattery perfomances on book, although we watched his performance on TV, Madman, and we absolutely love him. What an excellent narrator!
Be prepared for a sad ending that sticks with you for a couple of days. John Slattery did such an excellent job narrating, my husband and I felt we had watched a movie.
Yes, will try another of Hemingway's books to contrast his style with different story lines
Yes, did not enjoy this one as i was expecting more of a
His ability to inject the accent of each character added to the enjoyment of the story.
Less love story would have appealed to me more.
The accents used throughout the book made it the most enjoyable book I've listened to so far!!
This book more than any other provides a true look into why we live and what is important.
I wasn't even able to get through the book. It was as if someone digitized a single mic recording of a record playing at a great distance. The narrators wasn't very good anyway. Very bummed.
