"Hemingway captures atmosphere by reticence and breathes life into his characters by pages left unsaid ... It is American; it is literature; and it is a first novel by a genius" * Evening News * "Remarkable, startling, disquieting" * Spectator * "Some of the finest and most restrained writing that this generation has produced." * New York World *
About the Author
Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his craft. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961.

The Sun Also rises is no cliche love story where boy falls in love with girl,
girl falls in love with boy, they get married and live happily ever after. In this sense the book is good. The author does not rely on cliche and has a unique writing style which carries the story forward with an interesting rhythm.
The themes of the book seem to be love and money. Nothing out of the ordinary,
but it is highly exaggerated and confused.
In this book money is very important. Money brings friends, love and happiness.
The more you spend money the happier and more loved you will be.
Most of these expenses are frivolous.. Mostly money is spent in bars, travel and "partying". Partying is also highly valued. Partying and wine or anything that can get you drunk.
With all these priorities love is only a feeling in the background.
Infatuation invokes attention more than any feelings of true love.
True love rarely appears and is ignored when it does.
This story took place mainly in France and in Spain. If you have never been in France or Spain this book eagerly attempts to show them to you, but in a stereotypical sense.
Personally I did not like the book.. I found it hard to relate to and the occasional phrases in French did not make it easier. Nothing much happens in the way of a plot either. There is a lot of dialogue which is hard to follow because it is hard to tell whose talking. You have to concentrate to understand what your reading which some people may find intriguing but if you skip a few pages you wont miss much!
