The Sun Also Rises

Recommended by Nick from Adult Services:

The Sun Also Rises is the first novel from Ernest Hemingway. It’s set
in France and Spain and tells the story of a group of friends going to
watch the bullfights in Pamplona. The story is based on
Hemingway’s own friends and experiences in Europe as a member of the
“Lost Generation”.

He Says:

Reading Hemingway’s honest and terse prose is a joy. I want to visit
the bullfights after reading his description of Spain and the
accompanying fiesta. The protagonist, Barnes, espouses the values of
authenticity, realism, and passion. Hemingway invites the reader to
contemplate those values too.
