For Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940

For Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940. It tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American volunteer attached to a Republican guerrilla unit during the Spanish Civil War. As a dynamiter, he is assigned to blow up a bridge during an attack on the city of Segovia. It was published just after the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939), whose general lines were well known at the time

Ernest Hemingway went to Spain as a war correspondent for the North American Newspaper Alliance and was . I’d read The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms and enjoyed them. I approached For Whom the Bell Tolls convinced I would love it as well.

Ernest Hemingway went to Spain as a war correspondent for the North American Newspaper Alliance and was hoping to find some great material for a book. The dialogue is written in an archaic style implying that it is the most correct translation from the Spanish. The thees and thous are distracting and certainly added some ponderousness to a book that was set in the 1930s not the 1630s.

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. The Kindle version of For Whom the Bell Tolls is not very good. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922.

The book begins with Robert Jordan surveying an area of mountain terrain behind fascist lines. He's a young (or youngish) American volunteer fighting for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. (The Republicans are the good guys, fighting for freedom, democracy, and the common people. The fascists are the bad guys, who prefer military dictators and wealthy landowners to the common people.

From Whom the Bell Tolls. Author: Ernest Hemingway. He was an American who taught Spanish at a University in the middle of the country. For Whom the Bell Tolls was written by Ernest Hemingway and published in 1940.

He was also part of the International Brigades, a group of communists volunteers who helped Spain gain its independence.

The young man, who was tall and thin, with fair hair and a wind-and sunburned face, wore a flannel shirt, a pair of peasant's trousers and rope-soled shoes.

The young man, who was tall and thin, with fair hair and a wind-and sunburned face, wore a flannel shirt, a pair of peasant's trousers and rope-soled shoes. He leaned over and put the heavy pack onto his shoulders.

For Whom The Bell Tolls. In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Author: Эрнест Хемингуэй. Place of publication: New York.

I am talking about kindle version. this book is full of typos. I told amazon to revise this book but it is still same.

Do not buy this book, it is worthless. Prabhat prakashan and amazon are kidding us.

Just a quick note: I recently reread this when I was reminded of the complexities of the Spanish Civil War by a magazine article. The book did what I dimly remembered it did: it showed the local, human dimension of the war rather than the history book battle of ideologies we usually see. What I hadn’t remmbered was the subtlety and complexity of the love story. I’ve always thought Hemingway’s ability to present love has been underrated by many people who prefer to focus on the unwillingness of many of his characters to talk about their feelings. It’s true, his characters generally don’t have much to say on the subject, and even their inner monologues tend to be sparse, but Hemingway still manages to express his characters’ deep, vital and nuanced feelings. I think the lack of verbiage is part a reflection of the view expressed by many of his characters that it doesn’t do to talk about significant things too much and part the simple fact that the characters themselves don’t understand what they’re feeling.
Hemingway was a fabulous writer, and much of his work, though clearly rooted in his time period, still stands up to scrutiny today.

The Kindle version of “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is not very good. I don’t know if that is because it is an abridged version like other reviewers claim or whether it’s just not a good story. If the Kindle version is indeed abridged, I would have expected Amazon.com to alert buyers that it was so. Basically, “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is the story of a critical mission by a band of rebels accompanied by an American sympathizer fighting for the Republic against the Fascists in Spain during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). The rebels’ mission was to blow up a bridge, but the interplay among the characters leading up to the attack dominate the story.

The kindle edition I read was a "knock-off" Hemingway. The text was weird and not lined up. When there was an obvious expletive in the dialogue, it actually was deleted and the word "obscenity" was placed.

Having begun to "read into" Hemingway a bit, one begins to realise that everything about his style, including the lack of correct grammar, (as well as being the first writer to use the contracted form in literature, as everybody knows), has to do with conveying the feeling and the atmosphere of the places he is writing about, The more you read him, the more you read him, kind of thing. Hemingway's ability to create emotion and atmosphere that "takes you there", where the action is, is surprising, to say the least. Another: "can't put it down".book.
A good read! For those who don't already know Hemingway.

Be careful what you purchase. This edition is abridged and disgraceful. Papa would not be proud.

I read in amazement, knowing of Hemingway 's fame I still felt surprise at his writing ability. When I read his Paris book he would return to his wife after a long day of writing by longhand. I now understand how difficult that must have been: to constantly be thinking of and feeling the tiny details while laboriously writing each word.
This story of the Spanish civil war comes to the reader with such descriptive details that one can feel the dirt on their clothes and under the fingernails, and the cold dew of the morning. After all it is the details which causes a book to be readable and believable.
I am obviously not a Hemingway fan. I did not get the character development that would keep me engaged and the stilted dialog did not do for me what I believe the author intended. The time period is the Spanish Civil War and I believe Hemingway was trying to let the reader know the dialog was in Spanish and we were "reading the subtitles" or something of the sort. There was considerable repetition of non-essentials that I found terribly boring. This was a book I was reading for my book club and left for vacation before I could check it out at my local library so I borrowed one from the library in the town where we stayed and then ordered this when I got home. I got about half-way through and just couldn't make myself read any more.
