Was my impression boring Of course I didn t read this while lapping sangria in Madrid which I ve Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, heard willeighten this novel s overall effect The Sun Also Rises tells the story of Jake Barnes an ex patriate living in Paris He was wounded in World War I and is now impotent He is in love with Ashley who is a What did they call sluts in the early 20th Century Because that s sort of what she is though she Daddy Wanted has a tender place iner Forbidden Stranger heart for Jake to whom she keeps returning Jake is a journalist apparentlyaunted by the war and Snowy River Man he spendsis time drinking in Paris There s also a guy named Robert Cohn a former boxer who s also in love with Ashley Bill and Mike also Night Moves (Harlequin Blaze hang around Mike was originally in a relationship with Ashley beforee lost Les brumes d'avalon : roman her to Cohn who in turn loseser to a Spanish bullfighter The plot as it is involves a bunch of drinking in Paris Jake drinks a lot stumbles Malakai (Wicked Games, home then drinks some before falling asleep The drinking and stumblingome reminds me of my own life which is worth at least one star Jake eventually takes the train to Spain to do some fishing Hemingway describes the scene in excruciating detail and you really get a feel for the placeThen the road came over the crest flattened out and went into a forest It was a forest of cork oaks and the sun came through the trees in patches and there were cattle grazing back in the trees We went through the forest and the road came out and turned along a rise of land and out ahead of us was a rolling green plain with dark mountains beyond it These were not like the brown The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone heat baked mountains wead left behind These were wooded and there were clouds coming down from them The green plain stretched off It was cut by fences and the white of the road showed through the trunks of a double line of trees that crossed the plain towards the northThe book goes on in this manner for some time It s as though Hemingway Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, has turned into an elouent Garmin device Step by step The walk to the creek Theeat of the sun The taste of the wine It is all very vivid and beautifully written but really it didn t go anywhere It seemed like filler Something to break up the constant drinking while the drinking breaks up the Spanish travelogue The lack of a plot normally wouldn t bother me much but the book as a whole just wasn t working for me I didn t care for the characters who are mostly drunken indolent well off whiners Also I was intensely jealous of the characters who are mostly drunken indolent well off whiners In other words aspirational figures Really though I just wanted out of this book Hemingway s other works The Family Plan have burrowed deep into my consciousness so that I find myself referring back to them time and again The Sun Also Rises did not achieve this feat Eventually Jake s merry band of drunkards go to Pamplona to watch the bullfights There is drinking Fighting Drinking Bullfighting Drinking Drinking Passing out Drinking I actually got a contact drunk from reading this book I imagine that sex also occurred somewhere in the midst of the drinking and the bulls and the overflowing testosterone but Hemingway is discrete There are some good thingsere As I mentioned earlier Hemingway is a master of description His prose is deceptively simple A Family Practice his declarations actually do a great deal to put you there into the scene with immediacy The book also features one of Hemingway s most famous uotes Nobody lives life all the way up except bullfighters For some reason that lineas taken on a kind of profundity though I A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity have to admit I almost missed it in context The best part of the book is the last lines uttered by Jake Barnes Isn t it pretty to think so I ll leave it to you to determine its meaning As for me I am anxiously awaiting the moment when after a night ofard drinking I can use this line on someone who Celebrity Bachelor has just uttered an inane commentAlas I m still waiting for that moment And that gives me all the excuse I need to keep sidling up to the bar ordering a whiskey straight with a whiskey back and chatting up the people around me in theopes that one of the drunks I meet will also be a Hemingway fan I was sitting on the patio of a bar in Key West Florida It was August it was For Better and Worse hot The bar was on the beach where there was lots of sand and water In the water I saw dolphins and waves The dolphins jumped and the waves wavedMy glass was empty The waiter walked up to my table More absint What I learned from this book in no particular order 1 Jews are stubborn2 Being a Jew in Princeton sucks3 Being impotent sucks especially if you are in love with a beautiful woman4 A beautiful woman is built with curves like theull of a racing boat Women make swell friends5 If you suffer from domestic abuse the best way to work it out is by going through as many men as possible in the shortest time and then discard them like wet tissues once you re done if you Cassidys Kids (Maitland Maternity, happen to be pretty enough to attract scores of them that is6 The best way to work out existential angst is to drink your way through France and Spain7 The Left Bank sucks Being an expat sucks8 Spain sucks except for the bullfighting Bullfights are swell9 Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except bullfighters Bullsave no balls10 People who run with the bulls are suckersOther Random ObservationsNo of times the word swell is used 13No of alcohol units consumed by the protagonist Dunno Too tight to count HicHemingway might Rescuing the Texans Heart have perfectly captured the Lost Generation s times bute also succeeded in inducing a profound ennui in me especially during the long stretches in which the characters none who is terribly interesting to begin with do nothing except drink I m a little tight you know Amazing isn t it Did you see my nose and flirt with each other These passages are tediously repetitive and the effect is like being trapped in a Left Bank caf with a bunch of casual acuaintances who insist on regaling you with boring anecdotes from their boozy Spain road trip After a while your eyes start to glaze and your attention wanders you begin to take in the Belle Epogue interior the cute waiter the way the afternoon sun casts interesting patterns on the white tablecloth anything that is interesting than the dull main narrative I just didn t care for any of them and that Brett woman is a biatch Why is everyone so desperately in love with Wrangled (Whitehorse, MT: Chisholm Cattle Co., her They told me thater former Her Cowboy Hero (Refuge Ranch husband slept with a gun underis pillow but who is she really And I wish that everyone would stop whining and being glib for a while so
