It is one of the great stories. It was in my sylabus when i was doing 1st year M.A. in English Literature. one of the best novels of all the time. from that time on wards i started liking Hemingway.

Frederic Henry, met at Milan. one of the small city in Italy but the end was tragic . it was clearly a romantic novel of wartime. only one word for this great novel. Magnum Opus. The other novel i read was " The old man and the Sea " , even though the old man did not got the fish he want after spending all the day in the sea but retur to his hermitage, hoping " there is always a next day " that also a superb novel and hence dear Ernest Hemingways these two novels, i find worth reading and always be in my memory.
