Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Luis

For many, including me, this is considered Hemingway's greatest novel. It tells the story of Robert Jordan, an American soldier and explosive expert, who is sent to help the antifascist guerrilla movement in the heart of the Spanish mountains. Filled with emotional and thrilling moments, the book is centered on the idea of loyalty, courage, comradery, and love. Torn between his love for the rebel Maria, and the reality of warfare, Jordan needs to find "Hope", even if a blind one.
