I read this book many many years ago. It was mandatory reading when I was in school. Decided to re-read it. While still very good with strong descriptions of the characters and scenery, I now found it tedious. Hemingway drew out the story long beyond where he could/should have ended it. After a while it simply became repetitive. If you haven't read it, you should. It's a classic.
