A Farewell to Arms: The Hemingway Library Edition by Ernest Hemingway
I'm not normally a fan of books written in the first person. It jarred and irritated me at first as did the repetitive style.. I almost abandoned it. But I asked myself, how did he win a Nobel Prize . How did he win a Pulitzer Prize. Am i missing something. So I stuck with it and it drew me in. I was no longer a spectator. I became involved. The style works and it became a page turner. I'm now working my way through his complete catalog and enjoying it. The use of the first person and repetition to replace the usual omnipotent narrator worked very well for me. .

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 25 Sep 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. It is a good yarn that reminds me a little of the Border Trilogy by McCormac.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 25 Sep 2013
It is value for money of that there is no doubt. But the way iy is organised has put me off bothering with it. I really can't believe anyone would index a compilation in such a cack handed way. It makes the finding and retrieval of of individual books exasperating. I've given up on it and deleted it from my Kindle.
