Reading progress update: I've read 209 out of 490 pages.

For Whom The Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemingway

I have to take a break with this one. What an annoying writing style, I'm sure I read nothing more repetitive as this, ever. And what's up with all those thous and thees? Coming my self from a country which uses a formally form to address people, I would never translate it with something from a Shakespeare play ;)

Maybe my younger self was completely justified for hating Hemingway after reading "The Old Man and the Sea" at sixteen.
