2007 Audie Award Finalist for Classics

The only authorized edition of Ernest Hemingway's first novel.

The ideal companion for troubled times: equal parts Continental escape and serious grappling with the question of what it means to be, and feel, lost. --The Wall Street Journal

The Sun Also Rises is a classic example of Hemingway's spare but powerful writing style. It celebrates the art and craft of Hemingway's quintessential story of the Lost Generation--presented by the Hemingway family with illuminating supplementary material from the Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Library.

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. It is an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises is an absorbing, beautifully and tenderly absurd, heartbreaking narrative.a truly gripping story, told in lean, hard, athletic Read More chevron_right

   Did not hold up, IMO
Not sure this book would be published today. Nearly aimless plot, not to mention the cries of "racism!", "misogyny!", and "animal cruelty!" that would almost certainly ensue. The dialogue was stilted and repetitive, not to mention repetitive. The plot was virtually aimless, and the dialogue repetitive. Also, the dialogue was repetitive.

Maybe the aimless plot and repetitive dialogue was designed to represent the aimlessness and meaningless repetition of the life Hemingway saw/lived. But it doesn't make for a compelling story, at least not in the 21st Century, I'm sorry to say. Maybe I'm just a simpleton who's not sophisticated enough to "get it." Fine. I'm just looking for a good story and, this book did not check that box.

Plus, the dialogue was annoyingly repetitive. Did I mention that?
