Read full description of the books:
This beautiful leather-bound volume of 4 Hemingway novels represents the very best of his work.
The first, The Sun Also Rises tells the story of a group of friends, post WWI, traveling to Spain for the running of the bulls and bull fights. Based on true adventures, he changed the names and lost the friends. It was fun reading, though. And you will learn a lot about bullfighting.
The second, A Farewell to Arms, also partially based on Hemingway's real life when in his late teens he volunteered to be an ambulance driver for the Italian army in WWI before the US entered the war. He suffered severe injuries to his legs in a mortar attack and spent many months hospitalized during which time he met and fell in love with a nurse.
The third, For Whom the Bell Tolls takes place during the Spanish Civil War. The protagonist, Robert Jordan is an expat who is a Spanish instructor at a college in Montana on a one year sabbatical. He sympathizes with the cause and fights in the revolution.
The fourth, The Old Man and the Sea is probably Hemingway's most well known title and the one that won him the Pulitzer. It's a classic story of man triumphing against all odds.
These were all wonderful stories, but I would have to say that for me the masterpiece among them has to be For Whom the Bell Tolls. I know that Hemingway was in Spain as a journalist during their civil war, but this was an amazing piece of work. The character development was very strong, but what impressed me the most was all of the internal dialogs, especial with Robert Jordan. Just outstanding.

Read information about the authorErnest Miller Hemingway was an American author and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections and two non-fiction works. Three novels, four collections of short stories and three non-fiction works were published posthumously. Many of these are considered classics of American literature.
Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms. In 1922, he married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives. The couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent, and fell under the influence of the modernist writers and artists of the 1920s "Lost Generation" expatriate community. The Sun Also Rises, Hemingway's first novel, was published in 1926.
After his 1927 divorce from Hadley Richardson, Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer. They divorced after he returned from Spanish Civil War where he had acted as a journalist, and after which he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls. Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940. They separated when he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II; during which he was present at the Normandy Landings and liberation of Paris.
Shortly after the publication of The Old Man and the Sea in 1952, Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in two plane crashes that left him in pain or ill-health for much of the rest of his life. Hemingway had permanent residences in Key West, Florida, and Cuba during the 1930s and 1940s, but in 1959 he moved from Cuba to Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961.
