Publisher Description

Originally published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises is Ernest Hemingway’s first novel and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style.​

A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway’s most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. In his first great literary masterpiece, Hemingway portrays an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.

“The ideal companion for troubled times: equal parts Continental escape and serious grappling with the question of what it means to be, and feel, lost.” —The Wall Street Journal

Everything but the margins

The content is top-notch, of course. The margins on the block quotes were poorly implemented, though, causing the telegrams to appear overly narrow on the iPhone.

Great story; adequate eBook edition

FIVE stars for the story.
TWO stars for the eBook edition.

I'm not going to review the content of The Sun Also Rises. The value of the story and it's prose has been thoroughly established elsewhere.

This eBook edition is merely adequate, although I doubt there's a better one out there. Publishers have yet to figure out that it's not enough to scan in the book as is. I don't need extra blank pages; they add nothing. It would be fantastic to have a relevant dictionary, for example when I highlight poule, I want to see that's French slang for prostitute, not that there's no definition in the base dictionary.

Publishers need to get on the ball and make fresh, definitive eBook editions. This edition isn't that, but it does provide a largely error free, clean reading experience.
