The Sun Also Rises
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises helped establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.
Hemingway's best work
This book is so well written on top of an amazing story. If u haven't read it, get it NOW.
Great story; adequate eBook edition
FIVE stars for the story.
TWO stars for the eBook edition.
I'm not going to review the content of The Sun Also Rises. The value of the story and it's prose has been thoroughly established elsewhere.
This eBook edition is merely adequate, although I doubt there's a better one out there. Publishers have yet to figure out that it's not enough to scan in the book as is. I don't need extra blank pages; they add nothing. It would be fantastic to have a relevant dictionary, for example when I highlight poule, I want to see that's French slang for prostitute, not that there's no definition in the base dictionary.
Publishers need to get on the ball and make fresh, definitive eBook editions. This edition isn't that, but it does provide a largely error free, clean reading experience.
