El metodo casi periodistico y descarnado de Hemingway muestra al joven idealista Frederick Henry, quien despues de cumplir como voluntario en el ejercito, se enamora y huye, para encontrarse con dramas incluso superiores a los del campo de batalla. Es una novela llena de significados y con un fondo, que a pesar de su realismo es de un romanticismo digno de los grandes creadores del siglo XIX.

This is the story of Lieutenant Henry, an American, and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse. The two meet in Italy, and almost immediately Hemingway sets up the central tension of the novel: the tenuous nature of love in a time of war. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " There is no glory in war. There is only pain, suffering, fear. That is the message Mr.Hemingway is trying to convey in "A Farewell to Arms". This is not your glorious romantic love-in-the-time-of-war novel. This is an honest, realistic depiction of how war affects an individual and those around him. Years after it was written, this poignantly sad work of literature still remains as relevant as ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 2/6/2014

    " Probably one of the easiest Hemingway books to fall into and lose yourself in, but also the saddest and lost of all his protagonists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 2/2/2014

    " I guess it's probably because he's a misogynist and a drunk but I really don't understand Hemingway. I like the simplicity of his writing and found myself breezing through this novel. But in the end I was left very unsatisfied. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/27/2014

    " There's alot of feelings towards this book. Personally I'm not a huge fan of Hemingway as the rest of the America, but I do think he has talent. I disliked the character Catherine and Henry....they're conversations are full of insecurity and they're just pointless. This whole iceberg theory, that he developed is very frustrating, but fascinating nevertheless. "

    " People don't give Catherine Barkley enough credit for how brave she is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Wolfley | 1/18/2014

    " My first experience with Hemingway and it was excellent. He's a great writer because he can say so much with so few words. For example he wrote this powerful short story in 6 words: "Baby shoes for sale. Never worn." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 1/17/2014

    " if you have not read Hemingway before please start with this book. It will make you fall in love with everything he wrote. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Missy | 1/5/2014

    " Meh... Guess I was not in the moody for Hemingway. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Timothy | 12/2/2013

    " The love story was kind of annoying, mainly because Hemingway has some really horrid ideas about women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joel | 8/13/2013

    " Faulkner is so much easier to read when you're drinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Crema | 1/28/2013

    " My first Hemingway read, and won't be the last. "

    " Some pretty sad stuff. Oh Hemingway. "

    " Catherine says, "It's just a dirty trick." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nasir Zakareya | 8/7/2011

    " I thought book was awesome. This book was about a man that is an ambulence driver during World War 1.while in Italy he falls in love with a nurse. I though this book was great because it tells a great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Orla | 7/16/2011

    " Hemmingway has a great gift for displaying the nobility of humanity in a real and cold way and Farewell to Arms is that. It's harsh and true but carries itself well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheridan | 5/24/2011

    " I am imagining we will have an interesting book club discussion. But I didn't really enjoy reading this book. It reminded me of why I hate war. It made me think about what is love? Anyway, I am looking forward to discussing the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aprocuniar | 5/23/2011

    " I usually love the classics but I don't get this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nina | 5/20/2011

    " Really?
    I couldn't even finish the book.
    Flat, drab dialogue that kills whatever plot existed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/19/2011

    " Amazing classic... don't know when I read this, only that I loved it and can't wait to read it again... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/14/2011

    " I am always confused by Hemingway - his prose is so factual - non-emotional even - but this story was so emotional. I don't understand how he does it, and that is what is so amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 5/12/2011

    " appreciative of the style, perhaps envious "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M C | 5/7/2011

    " Sometimes this book is confusing and I lose track of who's talking but overall, it's really sweet. Sad sometimes but what romance doesn't have sad moments? I really like it so far. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 5/2/2011

    " I can understand that Hemingway's plot symbolism and understated prose style entice many readers, but it's not my cup of tea. For me, his short stories manage to reach their goals before the understatement becomes tedious. "

About the Author
Author Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers. During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises. He also wrote Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, the story of an old fisherman’s journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat. He also wrote short stories that are collected in Men Without Women and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories. Hemingway died in Idaho in 1961.
