The Sun Also Rises


Today I finished another book, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. It was very good. It was about a group of friends who are hanging out in Paris, then they all go to Pamplona in Spain to watch the bullfights. They seem to drink all the time. On just about every page they are drinking, drinking. Drinking and talking. They really drink a hell of a lot, and they talk, then have another drink. I have never read a book with so much boozing going on. (Well, not since I last read a Charles Bukowski book that is.)
Anyway, it was an excellent book, and contained some of the funniest dialogue I have ever read.

I must have offended you. I see you took my link off your preferences.

Woops! I assure you it was an accident. It must have happened while I was fiddling around with the template last night. That will teach me to drink and blog!
I have restored your link.

Is that yr first Hemmingway? I've got a big fat soft spot for "To Have and Have Not"

I'm sure I read one of his books back in the early '90s, but I'll be damned if I can remember which one it was.
I'm starting on 'A Farewell To Arms' today, but I'll try to get 'To Have and Have Not' next. Thanks for the tip!
