Less is More

For Whom the Bell Tolls
by Ernest Hemingway

I knew nothing of the Spanish Civil War, clan underground armed resistance, Russia's positive role in fighting Franco, writing, love, or wormwood absinthe before I read this book. Even Hemingway helped spoil the movie, but the book stands as one of his greatest literary achievements.

Thanks for the great website referral.

I just ordered a copy of Papa's Winner Take Nothing because it's been far too long since I reread "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber".
