Farewell to Arms

A Farewell to Arms - Ernest Hemingway A great book, and I love Hemingway's "refusal of interiority" writing style. Thematically though, it feels slightly flat and one-dimensional - I could even say that the way Hemingway imports reflections about life in general appears very contrived (especially in Henry's "internal monologues", which are unnecessary and often slightly annoying). I enjoyed reading it nevertheless - although it's far from my favorite piece of writing by Hemingway.
