I cannot believe the high ratings this book received here. It was terribly boring and pointless, and this from someone who likes Hemingway. Read other books by him but stay clear of this one!

This is one of the three books with any real merit this fraud ever wrote. Interesting tale with some compelling themes that are well developed. Intriguing dialogue, inventive use of language, very atmospheric. Ernie's powers as a writer diminish severely starting at this point, with a minor uptick occuring with Death in the Afternoon and a major one with For Whom The Bell Tolls.

I don' think I have read anything by Hemingway that I could honestly rate below five stars, except the Garden of Eden which would recieve four. I think that if any author can explain the alcohol the characters are drinking more than the war going on around them and still keep you interested they are doing a pretty good job. The relationship between the main characters is heartbreaking and real, certainly no fairy tale.

I am a huge Hemingway fan, and this is one of my favorite pieces. It was beautifully written and very romantic. It had love triangles, a lot of wine, and the Spanish influence on the story added that magical touch. It was a sad story, but bittersweet and touching. Highly recommended!

This novel is one of my favorites. It takes you on a trip to different cities and towns of foreign countries. Hemingway loves to write of human reactions and he explains human personalities very well. His style of writing is quick and very easy to read, though underneath the subtlety of his writing is a deep message in which the reader must figure out. His colorful words portray beautiful images of Europe. He is one of my favorite authors!

Post WWI, young adults search for adventure and meaning amid the destroyed atmosphere of post-war Europe. The vaccum left by the loss of God is silently contemplated while mind-numbing is achieved with sex and alcohol.

It's funny how a book can so totally turn you off in the first chapter and then leave you absolutely hooked by the last. That's exactly how this introduction to Hemingway's sardonic style affected me in high school. My disgust for what I perceived as toneless, depressing drunken tales truned to pity for any man whose thoughts could be so dark and then finally sheer admiration-awe. Even for a mind that could see the world so clearly for all its sad, bitter, aimless, rich, irony, could see it all without shattering.

I like Hemingway. He has his own unique and simple writing style that intrigues your imagination and your curiosity. Every sentence, every word, counts! And although the sentences are simple, the idea and philosophy boggles your mind!

Hemingway comes through again. While many of his novels address serious issues such as WWII and the Spanish Civil war, this is a hilarious comedy of drunk idiots.

This book is slow moving and boring. It is about a bunch of alcoholic that spend a summer in Paris and Spain. It reflects ecclesiastical ideas well, but never really raises the interest of the reader.

The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway is an interesting and dark story about Cuba and boats. Hemingway has a very sarcastic attitude and his attitude writing style is fascinating.

The characters and the plot in this novel are incredibly interesting. It isn't too long and quite easy to read. Very enjoyable.

Unlike most other people, it seems, Hemingway is definitely not a favorite of mine. I disliked his style of writing, the plot, and the characters. I have nothing good to say about it.

This is an excellent novel. If you enjoy thinking about and analyzing literature, you will absolutely love this novel. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a superficial action novel (a la Grisham or Clancy), read something else as this masterpiece will be too much work for you.

One of the most poignant stories of ill-fated love in modern literature. Masterfully understated in the best Hemingway tradition. Every time I read this book I understand it a little differently, and every time I read it I feel more respect for Jake.
