The Sun Also Rises

Gelesen von KevinS

(4,151 Sterne; 63 Bewertungen)

The Sun Also Rises (1926) was Hemingway's first novel to be published, though there is his novella The Torrents of Spring which was published earlier in the same year. The novel describes, expressed through the voice of Jake Barnes, a short period of social life that ranges from Paris to locations in Spain. One might say that the action occurs in Pamplona, Spain with the annual festival of San Fermin and its running of bulls and subsequent days of bullfights, but one can easily argue that the real interest of the novel is in its portrayal of the group to which Barnes is a part and how he details their anxieties, frailties, hopes, and frustrations.

Fine reading but boring book

(3 Sterne)

The reading was fine, though I very rarely understood the pronunciation of the French names (despite being a French speaker!). It didn't bother me at first, but there are many french words throughout the story and it was rather puzzling

Plot?

(3 Sterne)

Good prose but not much of a story. Idk if hemming way is cut out to be a writer

How, in the name of all that is holy, does this tripe qualify as, not only good writing, but as some of Hemingway’s best? It has to have had something to do with him blowing his brains out and the ensuing, misplaced sympathy.

booze booze booze!

I think I developed cirrhosis while listening to this, boy could they drink. Very well read thank you.
