Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Saturday, September 18, 2021
My husband and I had to be in Barrie for a few days, and before coming home I made a quick stop to look for something at a used bookstore we like-- Rivendell Books. They didn't have what I went in for, but I picked up a few things from the Discount shelf while I was there, and this was once of those books. I have read A Farewell to Arms in the past so will update this journal with my thoughts from back then before I pass this copy along.

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Sunday, September 26, 2021
Copied and pasted from my other copy's journal:


I have now read this book.

I knew that this book was set during the First World War and that era sort of dominates a lot of my life right now as I'm currently working on a project that marks the centenary of the Armistice, so I thought it would be a good time to read this.

I really did not enjoy this book. I always feel bad when I say things like that in a book's journal, but it's true. I didn't like Hemingway's writing style, and I didn't like the story, and I didn't like most of the characters. I'm glad that I read it because it is a classic-- it's generally considered an important work and now I am familiar with it-- but I didn't enjoy this one. I will release it at some point and hope it finds a reader for whom it's a better fit!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

My husband and I went for a walk in Ayr tonight and while we were there I left this book. I put it in a protective bag and left it on a low wall sort of thing by the stairs to the cenotaph, on the side near the Gus and Guido's patio.
