"A very good novel it unquestionably is, and I am not at all sure it may not prove to be a great one. That is not something to determine on a first reading. But this much more is certain: that Hemingway is now a writer of abundant talents whose work does measure up to his equipment. 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' is the book of a man who knows what life is about, and who can convey his knowledge. Hemingway has found bigger game than the kudu and the lion. The hunter is home from the hills."Hemingway, Ernest is the author of 'For Whom the Bell Tolls', published 1995 under ISBN 9780684803357 and ISBN 0684803356.
