The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

Sun also rises


  1. One of the most famous books about the Lost Generation – the post-WWI generation who faced disillusionment after witnessing the atrocities of that war.
Key Takeaways
  1. Enjoying living was learning to get your money’s worth and knowing when you had it
  2. Known for its description of the aimless generation – after WWI people had no basis for morality and led a sad and meaningful life and trying to escape it through drinking or debauchery
  3. Themes – male insecurity, destructiveness of sex, failure of communication, false friendships
  4. Characters – Jake Barnes, Robert Cohn, Lady Brett Ashley, Bill Gorton, Mike Campbell, Pedro Romero
What I got out of it
  1. Interesting book to read as it gives what seems to be a very clear view into the lives of this lost generation.
