Confession. I haven't read For Whom the Bell Tolls. It wasn't assigned to me in high school or in college, and I never had a real interest in cracking the cover. Not my genre. But when I saw it was left behind in the shed by the previous owners of my trailer, I moved it inside to my bookshelf. And there it has sat for the last five years. But now I think the book gods were trying to tell me something. It's time for some rounding out. I'll read it quickly, as I don't linger on war-themed books. A week from now I'll review it on this blog.
