Publisher's Summary

Ernest Hemingway's first novel, The Sun Also Rises, follows the adventures of a group of young, hard-drinking, American expatriates - which Hemingway refers to as the "Lost Generation" - as they pinball through Europe, from France to Spain and back again. Directionless, disillusioned, and fueled by copious amounts of alcohol, narrator Jake Barnes takes the listeners into the heart of 1920's Europe, particularly Paris and Pamplona (where the characters witness the infamous running of the bulls and Jake develops as fascination with bullfighting). 

At once cynical and satiric, The Sun Also Rises was the first cry of a new literary voice that would come to dominate the first half of the 20th century.

The seminal novel from Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway, the book appears here in its unabridged and original format.

Great narration of a classic

I returned another version of this book because the narrator was awful, but Joseph Wycoff did Hemingway proud.

I was surprised

I did not realize the Hemingway was an anti-Semite. The repeated and unnecessary anti-Semitic remarks were unnecessary and in no way contributed to the storyline with was, at best… boring…. The narration was excellent.

Why censor words in an unabridged book?

I liked the writing and I liked the performance. I did not like beeps in place of the author’s words.

A very subjective review

Easy to read and finish. Hard to accept. He must have known some very human bastards.
