A Book Extravaganza - featuring classics and some of my favorite books
Classic: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Synopsis: A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. It is an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.
My Favorites: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares
The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
