Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Love/hate relationship"

    Absolutely wonderful performance by the reader on a classic. I just don't know whether to cry or linger in disbelief at Hemingway's audacious attempt to convey meaning in such an engaging story.

    "Great narrator and awesome story."

    The narrator actually sucked me into this book. His accents and imitations of the characters in the story brought the book to life. Great job audible.

    "dry, no attachment to characters"

    the first book of Hemingways that I have listened to. the narration is very good, which is why I stuck with it. but the story ran dry and felt no connection with the characters.

    "Slattery Aces Accents"

    John Slattery makes for a marvelous voice actor. His variety of intimations and accents brings this book to life in an uncanny way.

    "Most memorable moment"

    Of all the emotional scenes in this classic, the one that stands out to me is when Rinaldi is asking Richard Henry how he was wounded, and Henry replies that he was wounded while eating cheese.

    Yes, I know, that's not much of a review, but what else can you say about one of the best novels ever?

    It's a story about war, with guns and death. It's a story about a love affair, with fidelity and doubt. It's a story about friends and companions and tragedy. Read it. It tells the story of what it's like to be a human.

    "Roger Sterling kills it"

    One of the greatest American novels gets a five star treatment from actor John Slattery. I read the novel a couple of times and wanted to get a different perspective by listening to an audio book. Well worth it as the performance hits all the right notes

    "Boring"

    I loved For whom the Bell Tolls, so I was surprised at how dull and boring the story was here. And the performance made it hard for me to think these two cared much for each other at all. Disappointed.
