I don't know whether to be embarrassed by it or not, but I've never read Hemingway before. I figured this would be a good one to start with? Impression so far: young people haven't changed much.

Reading this today is very different than reading it when I was in high school.I loved it when I first read it, but this time around, it was just okay. I did enjoy Hemingway's description of the bullfights, beaches and what it's like to drink too much, travel without itinerary and take in the local culture. Just like many things, the writing style, the content, and presentation are of it's time.

I was eager to read more Hemingway, and a friend REALLY hyped up The Sun Also Rises. So, of course, I was hugely disappointed. I had more fun reading up on the gossip and controversy surrounding Hemingway's career than I did reading this book; so much masochistic masculine moping! Nabokov said Hemingway was all “bells, bulls and balls“, and that about sums it up. Full review: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/the-sun-also-rises-ernest-hemingway/

Velvetfur I agree, I was a bit meh about this one too, although I've enjoyed other Hemmingway stories before. I wrote down this same quote in my book journal! 😊 4mo

What I like about this book is that even though I‘ve never been to a post-war, seven-day bull fighting fiesta in Spain, I still feel the deeply-rooted ennui of its characters. They‘re just people with shallow happiness and deep sorrow that I think is relatable, but it‘s written in such a subtle way. He never just says anyone‘s sad or depressed, but you feel it nonetheless. The “lost” are in every generation, and Hemingway speaks directly to them.

1⭐️😰 ahhh I feel bad that I really didn‘t like this book. I get the whole lost generation after the war thing explaining the lack of anything really happening but it didn‘t make it any less boring. It‘s just lots of scenes of them drinking in different places and it honestly felt like I was reading the same five pages again and again through the whole book. 😬

kristincatastrophic I felt the exact same way. Start a new chapter, they're partying again. Again and again. 10mo

Hemingway transports you to France and Spain and introduces you to characters without saying any more than he needs to. Sparse, yet lush writing. Beautiful and painfully numbed. Needless to say, I liked this novel.

Also, I love my B&N multi-novel, bible-looking edition. A woman at the bar actually asked if it was a bible. I suppose Hemingway is more typical bar-reading material...

Finished it. I struggled with it a little. Not in the actual reading, Hemingway's style is easy to read, but with the point of it. I'm not too proud to admit when something goes over my head. I spent sometime this afternoon reading up on what others had to say about it's theme. I get it now but honestly reading it it just seemed like a group of friends hanging out and partying. So, I'm glad I did my research. I feel like I'm in school again

I don't feel comfortable dragging that fancy copy of And Then There Were None around with me. So, I'm starting this as my "take anywhere I might encounter people but would rather hide my nose in a book than interact with them" book. I've never read anything by Hemingway, broadening my horizons.

I read this book because my English teacher gave me a list of books I should have read at some point in my life. Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I read this book. I know it's an unpopular opinion to think Hemingway's writing is boring (for lack of a better word) but I though the narration was too much—anyone else? I thought the plot was uninteresting, and I'm aware that's not the point of the overall text I just wish there was more

Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises | Ernest Hemingway

#partyrockanthem
On the surface this is a book about a couple of young, rich, bored people who travel through Europe drinking and partying and searching for something they don't find. A bit of a boring book, until you realize that these people lived through WWI, which shook up the world in such a manner that everyone walked out of the trenches and into a collective loss of innocence. Then the book makes a lot of sense. #heatofjuly

This is the best I could think re: #sunshine. I am not really a fan of Papa Hemingway but this book was pretty good. It is about an initially idyllic trip to Spain that quickly goes south (no pun intended) as rivalry over a woman escalates and copious amounts of alcohol are consumed! #ReadingResolutions @Jess7

When my brother-in-law's grandmother passed away he gave me three sets of books from her collection in which nobody in his immediate family was interested. I have these two sets by Hemingway and Steinbeck as well as another by Pearl Buck. They seemed a good choice for today's #bookspines prompt.
