For whom the bell tolls post I

Reading now…For whom the bell tolls by Ernest Hemingway
I read books ideally from a Friday to a Friday and so I just started this and am about 50 pages in. There is such a weight of expectation going into a Hemingway that comes from his reputation and the number of high profiles fans he has. So far the story has been sketched – the blowing up of the bridge mission – and the main characters have been introduced and you feel that at some point soon the pace will pick up and he his writing will really grab you. We’ll have to see next week if that’s true.
