The Sun Also Rises

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 1926 - Fiction - 251 pages
1908 Reviews
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 enjoyed this book, I truly did. I don't mean that as in that it was brilliant or intriguing, because it really wasn't. Hemingway's writing style is dull, very concise. Written almost in an ... Read full review
