For Whom the Bell zzzzzzzzzzzzz

my book club decided to read hemingway’s “for whom the bell tolls.”  i’m having a really hard time getting into it.  it’s not really that it’s boring, it’s just the style of writing, it doesn’t captivate me, and it’s kind of depressing.  i have to read 200 pages in the next two days in order to be caught up for our next meeting.  i just read the part where he sleeps with the little shaved-headed war prisoner rape victim girl.  and she says she wants him to because “if we do everything together, the other maybe never will have been.”  i found this disturbing.
