Hemingway's great novel of the Spanish Civil War

'The world is a fine place and worth fighting for and I hate very much to leave it'

High in the pine forests of the Spanish Sierra, a guerrilla band prepares to blow up a vital bridge. Robert Jordan, a young American volunteer, has been sent to handle the dynamiting. There, in the mountains, he finds the dangers and the intense comradeship of war. And there he discovers Maria, a young woman who has escaped from Franco's rebels...

'A sparse, masculine, world-weary meditation on death, ideology and the savagery of war in general' Sunday Telegraph

'One of the greatest novels which our troubled age will produce' Observer


**One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**

MEDIA REVIEWS
His passionately committed, flawed masterpiece * Observer *
For Whom the Bell Tolls allowed us to actually see the experience of an irregular struggle, from the political and military point of view...That book became a familiar part of my life. And we always went back to it, consulted it, to find inspiration * Observer *
I read as a kid, of course, but it didn't get me like that till I read For Whom the Bell Tolls. I was very taken with that book. I still reread sections, though I'm now reading it not for the thrill of the story but for the technique and craft of it. * Daily Mail *
The best book Hemingway has written * New York Times *

“For Whom the Bell Tolls”

This is an epic work that despite being set during the Spanish Civil War is almost purely character driven. Hemingway has created a story and cast of characters that is utterly believable and largely engrossing... More

“A masterpiece of fiction”

The epitome of a masterpiece with only Hemingway's own Novel 'The Old Man and The Sea' surpassing it in term of writing perfection. Hemingway's deceptively simple prose engages the reader and... More

“A moment in time”

This book is an excellent book, though not my favouite Hemingway (I prefer Old man and the sea or Fiesta). This book is centred on the Spanish Civil War and mainly a relatively small moment within it.
