About The Book

Una inolvidable historia de amor entre una enfermera y un joven soldado idealista en la Italia de la I Guerra Mundial. Por el Premio Nobel de Literatura Ernest Hemingway.

No amaba a Catherine Barkley, ni se le ocurría que pudiera amarla. Aquello era como el bridge, un juego donde te largas a hablar en vez de manejar las cartas. Eso pensaba el teniente americano Frederic Henry, conductor de ambulancias en el frente italiano durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, al poco de conocer a esta bella enfermera británica. Lo que parecía un juego se convirtió en pasión intensa, mientras la guerra lo arrasaba todo y los hombres desfilaban bajo la lluvia, agotados y hambrientos, sin pensar más que en huir de la muerte.

Inspirada en las vivencias de Hemingway, Adiós a las armas es ya un clásico de la literatura universal y uno de los mejores retratos de la voluntad humana.

Raves and Reviews

"Fascinating...serves as an artifact of a bygone craft, with handwritten notes and long passages crossed out, giving readers a sense of an author’s process."

– The New York Times

“A Farewell to Arms” stands, more than 80 years after its first appearance, as a towering ornament of American literature."

– The Washington Times

"This special edition of [Hemingway's] classic World War I novel, first published in 1929, contains several features that illuminate how Hemingway constructed his timeless tale of love and war."

– Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"A Farewell to Arms is a gem....To see Hemingway go from bold pronouncements and overwriting to his signature stripped-down style isn't just instructive, it's practically intrusive (but fun!)"

– NPR.org
