      A highly-recommended read.

      Based on real-life events in Hemingway's life, The Sun Also Rises is about American ex-pats that travel from Paris to Spain to watch the bull-fighting. On the way they drink a lot, argue and the characters fall in love. It's set in between both world wars and the young people are confused about what to do with the rest of their lives. They escape the turmoil in America. The main character Jake is a charming ex-soldier who falls in love with Lady Brett but during the course of the book you find out the many harrowing reasons why they can't be together. It's excellently written with truly brilliant and diverse characters. The presentation of Brett as a flapper, a strong and independent post-First World War woman who wants it all, truly made her stand out at the time. There is no wonder it's considered a true classic by everyone from literary scholars to the everyday reader.
