  "When Eight Bells Toll" is a first-rate crime drama by famed story-teller Alistair Maclean. The story is built around the pursuit by British Treasury agent Philip Calvert of a murderous gang of maritime bullion hijackers operating out of the rugged coastline of Western Scotland/5(5).   I have taught books by Hemingway in the past, but had only seen the classic movie version of For Whom the Bell Tolls. The book far surpassed my already high expectations and the experience was greatly enhanced by the superb reader who did an outstanding job with the dialogue and voices of various characters and Robert Jordan's interior monologues.

  In the end I picked For Whom the Bell Tolls off the used bookstore shelf and got reading. I’ll skip the plot summary, but instead talk about the book this way: if you want kids (er, young adults) to enjoy and appreciate Hemingway, and possibly return to his bibliography again and again instead of reading one single novella and calling it good. This latter is closest to what is known today as the Funeral toll. Today, customs vary regarding when and for how long the bell tolls at a funeral. In churches with full-circle English bells, for commemorative services such as funerals, memorial services and Remembrance Sunday, the bells are rung half-muffled instead with a leather pad on one.
