For Whom the Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemingway - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book For Whom the Bell Tolls:

An American guerrilla in Spain.

My favorite Ernest Hemingway quote from the book:

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

Questions to ponder while reading For Whom the Bell Tolls:

Could you fight a war that wasn't yours?

Should you love wholeheartedly, even if your time together is short?

My thoughts about For Whom the Bell Tolls:

There is romance in fighting for your beliefs.

Pure idealism is difficult to fight.

A book for the warrior in us all.
