>People lived on in it and there were hospitals and cafés and artillery up side streets and two bawdy houses, one for troops and one for officers, and with the end of the summer, the cool nights, the fighting in the mountains beyond the town, the shell-marked iron of the railway bridge, the smashed tunnel by the river where the fighting had been, the trees around the square and the long avenue of trees that led to the square; these with there being girls in the town, the King passing in his motor car, sometimes now seeing his face and little long necked body and gray beard like a goat’s chin tuft; all these with the sudden interiors of houses that had lost a wall through shelling, with plaster and rubble in their gardens and sometimes in the street, and the whole thing going well on the Carso made the fall very different from the last fall when we had been in the country.

I'm not a fan of this and I find it pretty tiresome, but it's stylistic, not poorly-written. At the time, this style of writing was new and exciting. We just have higher standards today.

I've only read The Sun Also Rises, and I gotta say, the dialogues and character development are out of this earth

Because of America's media propagating propaganda disguised as American exceptionalism worldwide. It's the reason why people think Kubrick is the greatest director of all time when he wouldn't crack the top 10

Yea I only liked the old man and the sea, which was basically a YA story about perseverance etc, nothing special.

He was lucky the americans flooded the world with him and his output to try to convince the world that free and capitalist america was more cultured than the soviet union.
