Most people either love Hemingway or hate him -- there's very little "middle ground." I admire his minimalist writing, as frustrating as it can be, and I despise his two-dimensional female characters, who are so unrealistically rendered that you either have to laugh at or be horrified by their dialogue. Still, this novel does not romanticize war or the men who fight in it, and although my students think of this as a love story, there's a lot to question about the relationship between Catherine and Frederic. Lots to discuss in this one -- and I always like books with lots to discuss.
