Publisher's Summary

Actor Michael Gandolfini, star of The Many Saints of Newark, brings Hemingway’s masterwork to life with an original and captivating performance in this brand-new audiobook edition of The Sun Also Rises. 

In his unforgettable first novel, Hemingway artfully illuminates the plight of the Lost Generation, weaving a poignant tale of love and loss in the aftermath of World War I. The story follows two expatriates living in Paris in the 1920s: Jake Barnes, an American war veteran and journalist, and Lady Brett Ashley, an independent Englishwoman exploring the opportunities afforded by a new era of liberated women and sexual freedom. Impotent due to an injury suffered during the war, Jake must navigate his hopeless love for Brett in a changed world of waning morality.  

From Parisian society’s vibrant nightlife to the ruthless bullfighting rings of Spain, The Sun Also Rises takes listeners on a powerful journey through mass disillusionment, moral bankruptcy, and elusive could-have-beens. All the while, we see both the brokenness and resilience of a generation scarred physically and emotionally by the horrors of war.

A Classic

An interesting story for what it is. Some enjoyable characters, wonderful descriptions of the French and Spanish countryside in the 1920s. Hemingway's style is a bit repetitive in this early work, but it seems to fit the characters and the troubled existence they're living after the war. Didn't love the performance, but credit to Gandolfini for attempting to do all the voices and accents.
