Book Bucket List: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

There are books in your life that you come across and you know you have to read them. They can be old, they can be new but before your time runs out you have to find time to read them. Welcome to my Book Bucket List everyone!


Synopsis: In 1918 Ernest Hemingway went to war, to the 'war to end all wars'. He volunteered for ambulance service in Italy, was wounded and twice decorated. Out of his experiences came A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's description of war is unforgettable. He recreates the fear, the comradeship, the courage of his young American volunteer and the men and women he meets in Italy with total conviction. But A Farewell to Arms is not only a novel of war. In it Hemingway has also created a love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion.




There are so many books out there that I want to read, but life gets in the way and there are other things we have to do. In my case actually it's because I have a huge list of ARCs I need to read and get out reviews to all of you before their release date. 

I'm a great lover of books, and maybe it's impossible to tell by the books I have reviewed here, I love books that are considered literary classics. Such as Shakespeare sonnets and plays (with a few exceptions), Jane Austen novels, Phantom of the Opera, you get the point. So a lot of my Book Bucket List are books that fall under this category of literary classics. I believe that among the books I mentioned falls A Farewell to Arms. 

I didn't just choose this book because it's a classic but because I have read many quotes from it, and judging by the snippets it sounds amazing. There was one quote in particular that made me decide that I just had to read it. Here it is:

“Maybe...you'll fall in love with me all over again."

"Hell," I said, "I love you enough now. What do you want to do? Ruin me?"

"Yes. I want to ruin you."

"Good," I said. "That's what I want too.” 

I have read some Hemingway but not enough to be a real judge on his work. Actually, I'm quite ashamed to admit that, because I know that any bibliophile worth his/her salt should know more about Hemingway. Well, I hope that I find the time to read more of his work but A Farewell to Arms I will definitely find some time to read. Unfortunately, I don't know when.

  5. Similar measures will be taken for the show in Poland, which is a time-marking fight for Wach who eyes a big 2020 run. The 40-year old from Krakow was in line to face unbeaten heavyweight contender Agit Kabayel, only for such a pairing to fall through along with thousands of other bouts over the past seven weeks due to the ongoing global health crisis.
