O enredo de O Sol Nasce Sempre (Fiesta) decorre na Europa após o termo da Primeira Guerra Mundial. Se exceptuarmos o toureiro Pedro Romero, todos os seus outros personagens principais se expatriaram dos Estados Unidos da América ou da Grã-Bretanha. E todos eles, quer tivessem vindo em busca de aventura ou de algo indefinido com que preencher o vazio das suas vidas, tinham acabado por instalar-se em Paris. Esta celebrizara-se, nos anos 20, graças à boémia esfuziante dos seus cafés e da sua intelectualidade. Aí se podiam, com efeito, encontrar pintores como Picasso, Miró ou Matisse, ou mulheres como a americana Gertrude Stein, que criara uma tertúlia onde diversos artistas plásticos ou escritores como James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald e Ernest Hemingway se juntavam para trocar ideias. Mas se Paris garantia assim a todos uma vida interessante, a verdade é que muitos a sentiam também como vazia. De modo que, à semelhança aliás do que acontecera a Hemingway e a alguns dos seus amigos, um certo número de personagens deste romance pretenderão escapar à sofisticação e à corrupção da grande cidade, refugiando-se no universo mais tradicional da Espanha daqueles anos. E porque muitos se reconheceram neste retrato de uma geração sem raízes, O Sol Nasce Sempre (Fiesta) tornou-se rapidamente um romance de culto para os jovens europeus do período de entre as duas guerras.

This is an easy read that draws you into a circle of tortured friends. I watched the movie only yesterday, and it left me wishing to go back and read the book once again. It is simple, beautiful, and somehow gives you a great deal more than what is actually written on the page. You can read this in one sitting, and days after, you'll wonder why it's sticking with you quite as it is. I'm still not sure on this matter, but it is a quick and fascinating look with the unmistakable style and quickness Hemingway always seems to employ.read more

I thought this book was just ok. Maybe I'm just not a Hemingway fan, but I really didn't like how there was no real character development - it was more just a bunch of dialogue. There was also a lack of interesting plot. When I first started reading this book I thought to myself "This is going to be great!" But after about the first 100 pages the book didn't really go anywhere. Honestly, I just thought there was so much more that could have been included in this book.I was very disappointed after reading The Sun Also Rises. I've heard such great things about Hemingway's writing. Perhaps this was a bad introduction into the world of Hemingway. I will continue to read some more of his works, and I hope I will not be a dissatisfied as I was with this book.read more

Hemingway's writing is delicate and powerful: like a ballerina punching you in the face.Love how he writes, not a big fan of how he anthropomorphized his war experiences into Lady "Brett" Ashley.But if you like to read for how a book sounds in your head, this one is it. The dialogue is unparalleled (except, perhaps, by Hemingway's other works).read more

This book contains the best Hemingway line ever: "the road to hell is paved with unbought stuffed dogs."


That's the highlight; now you can skip it.

I first read The Old Man And The Sea and after finishing the novel (which took only about two hours), I puzzled over why everyone thought Hemingway was so great. Then I read The Sun Also Rises and puzzled even more. Hemingway insults my intelligence! He has no technique. His grammar is horrid. The dialogues seem stilted and awkward. There is almost no character depth.Alright, I'm done ranting.Maybe this is his worst novel? Maybe I should read For Whom The Bell Tolls? Maybe I'm just sick of Modernist writers?Maybe.The only reason I gave him that extra half-of-a-star is because he did win the Nobel Prize. And he did make me feel like I was in Spain. Just a little.

The best book by Hemingway, hands down. As far as I'm concerned, the best novel ever written. This novel is so gripping you won't even notice it slide by until you're done and you miss having it around. More than one person has told me they finished the book and simply turned back to page one to start again.Even beyond this being the first example of Iceberg Theory, or that it was the first novel by a man who would help define twentieth century literature, this entire book leads so perfectly to the last line that it's like climbing the tallest mountain and not taking in the view until you reach the very top.
