Publisher's Summary

The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation, The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style. 

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 helped to establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.

Great Hemingway Novel

One of Hemingways best. You really feel immersed in Paris and Spain. Pretty decent narration.

I don’t get it

I found the book totally pointless, and uninteresting. I’m surprised that it’s ranked as one of his best works.

My Favourite Hemingway Novel

A modern classic. The prose is spoken so clearly, in that now famous Hemingway manner - "Isn't it pretty to think so." The narrator voices the characters incredibly well. The clarity of each remark makes this a perfectly listenable audible. Highly recommended, even if you know the book by heart.

One of Hemingway's Finest

In my view this is the best novel by Ernest Hemingway. The narrator did a suburb job, especially navigating among the several accents of the characters. Hemingway captured the feeling of place as the action moved between locations in France and Spain. All of the characters among this aimless bar hopping “lost generation” after WWI were interesting and well-drawn and revealed a great deal about human nature. Well worth a listen!

Hemingway doesn't let you down

Nathan Osgood is a fantastic narrator. The story is easy to follow and reveals clear observations of people, places and characters.
