One of the most famous books about the Lost Generation - the post-WWI generation who faced disillusionment after witnessing the atrocities of that war.
- Enjoying living was learning to get your money's worth and knowing when you had it
- 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
- Themes - male insecurity, destructiveness of sex, failure of communication, false friendships
- Characters - Jake Barnes, Robert Cohn, Lady Brett Ashley, Bill Gorton, Mike Campbell, Pedro Romero
- Interesting book to read as it gives what seems to be a very clear view into the lives of this lost generation.
