AP Reading List – Book-a-Day: The Sun Also Rises

Sun also risesAuthor:  Ernest Hemingway

Category:  Fiction

Overview:  Loosely based on Hemingway’s time as an expatriot the book centers around a group of expatriots living in Paris who travel to Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls Festival.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Based on people Hemingway knew in Paris, this is a tragic love story that is, at the same time, a novel of redemption.  My favorite of his novels, I have read this one many times.”

Ethan: “Perhaps no other author has so greatly influenced modern writing than Ernest Hemingway. His short, to the point writing style is on full display in his masterpiece The Sun Also Rises.”
