A BOOK WORTH READING

During my stay in Arambol, I read The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway.

It is the first book written by the author, who was awarded the Nobel prize.

Hemingway tells his life in Paris with his circle of friends.

He went on a trip in Pamplona with his friends for the famous festival of Saint Firmino.

The novel is written in a simple and realistic style with a wealth of details. The reader has the feeling of being present amid the characters of the book.

The events told in the novel happened at the time when the internet didn’t exist. Smoking and drinking alcohol was not considered particularly harmful. The exchanging of messages among friends happened by wire.

The book is a cross-section of the twentieth century society, as a journalist sees it. Actually Ernest Hemingway was a journalist.

Romance, friendship, festivals, bullfights appear and disappear, but the sun will rise again.

Yes, the sun of hope will rise again for everybody. So, life is worth living.

Ettore Grillo, author of these books:

– A Hidden Sicilian History

– The Vibrations of Words

– Travels of the Mind
