I was never one to read much classic literature. This 355 page novel reflects a saddening story of a solider who returns home from war. Lt. Fredrick Henry shares his time in the field of war, before his home life falls into shambles. If needing to read a book about an alcoholic's demise to relate to military service ever, this is the one book I would recommend for that purpose. This book published in 1929, and refers to service in World War One.

In Silver Lining's Playbook, Bradley Cooper- who plays Pat ( the main character who is Bi-Polar), catches onto the outcry that Hemingway's lieutenant in Farwell to Arms lives. The scene of one episode lived out by a manic depressive lives in me too. When a drunk abandons his pregnant wife for night life- both die in the child birth. It is a sad and disguising reality that alcoholism kills.

My critique of this book is, use it as inspiration as the ghost writers who wrote Silver Lining's Playbook did. Make the great American poets known for their muse killing them. No muse is worth dying of lung cancer or alcohalism. Go to get professional help if that person is you. Write more pivotal and shocking truth to send out to the presses. Don't be a Hemingway!
