“Don't you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you're not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you've lived nearly half the time you have to live already?"
This is an extremely late post! I wanted to mention that in the Summer (2014) I read Ernest Hemingway's classic novel The Sun Also Rises, and afterwards I watched the 1957 film. The story revolves around a writer, who lives in Paris, and travels to Spain with a group of friends for the bullfighting. Although Hemingway is a well know fantastic author, I felt like this book was hardly riveting. It is however full of adventure, love, affairs, friendship, conflict, and discrimination. The themes are the wandering lost generation, male insecurity and the destructiveness of sex.
