Day 11 – A book you hated
I might very well get in a lot of trouble for this. Because this is a book which quite a few people actually enjoyed but I did not.
That book is The Sun Also Rises.
Maybe I’m just not a Hemingway fan, but there’s also something that was lacking in this book for me. The emotion seemed so forced and Brett to me was one of the most unlikeable characters I’ve ever had the displeasure to read.
It’s not to say that there was nothing good in this book because there was, the imagery in this book was lush and full, and allowed me to picture the settings and characters quite clearly but I am definitely not a big Hemingway fan. It’s just not really my cup of tea.
I can’t remember if we read that one in school, I know for sure 2 books we read in 11th grade one was Faulkner and one was Hemingway and I didn’t like either.
