The Sun Also Rises
The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation, The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway’s masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style.
A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway’s most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises helped establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

I can honestly say this book was so painful to read. First Hemingway book I have read and I was extremely disappointed. Characters and plot were just so bleh. Read full review

Everyone in this book is awful - whiny, entitled, etc. I do like having at least one person to root/hope for. In general, I am not a Hemingway fan. I hate his style of writing with all the short, choppy sentences. Drives me mad. Read full review
