- "I love the classic Hemingway novel "For Whom the Bell Tolls." I have a old, worn out copy of the book, but I have been wondering if it was ever published by Vintage Classics. It is definitely a vintage classic novel, so I would think it would be. I haven't found it yet, but I will keep searching."
- "This is a classic that we just don't expect our children to read anymore, for shame. For Whom the Bell Tolls takes us back to the Spanish revolution through the perspective of Ernest Hemingway. He presents an exceedingly complex character. A fair bit of warning though: This is the abridged version, which is why I've only given it 2.5 stars as opposed to 5. It buchters the original text to be more palatable to less sophisticated younger audiences and loses much of the depth of meaning in Hemingway's writing. Read this to prime you for the real thing, but it's surely no substitute."
- "I recently went on a trip to the Florida Keys and discovered that is where Ernest Hemingway is from. I had obviously heard of his work before but never actually read one. I quickly fell in love with his prose and the extremely detailed character development. This specific copy was not my favorite as the print was small, but don’t let that deter you from the work itself."
- "For Whom the Bell Tolls is a book written by Ernest Hemingway and is widely regarded as his greatest masterpiece and the greatest novel to emerge from "the good fight." The book tells the story of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal."
- "I personally think that this is on Hemingway's best books. It tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerrilla unit in the mountains of Spain. It is a story of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. I think it will be worth your time. "
- "I am always intrigued to learn about things I don't know about. I was looking for basic stuff according to the Turkish and their education system. For Whom the Bell Tolls is a great book that fits this. It's about an American who fought guerrillas during the spanish war. It's really worth reading and I couldn't put it down. "

- ""For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Ernest Hemingway is a classic. I remember reading this in school. For me, it is very confusing and hard for me to understand the characters. It is one of Hemingways longest stories and drags on a bit. If you are a big Hemingway fan, then you may like this, otherwise, you may be bored."
