I can't stand it to think my life is going so fast and I'm not really living it.

In the dazzling lights of 1920s Paris, falling in love comes easily. Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley are part of the Lost Generation, disillusioned by the tragedies of World War I and seeking immediate pleasures. They begin an all-consuming love affair that leads them to the Spanish city of Pamplona, with its invigorating bullfights and gaudy matadors. But is their love as fleeting as the fiesta?

The Sun Also Rises was Hemingway's first novel and one of his best. Beautifully told, this heart-rending story is the quintessential novel of the 'roaring twenties' - a decade at once thrilling and tragic as a generation desperately search for meaning in the wake of World War I.
