  8. breakthecitysky answered: for whom the bell tolls or the sun also rises, for sure. but i agree with the vote for short stories as an easier entry point.
  9. kyleyocum answered: i recommend “the sun also rises” or “for whom the bell tolls.” One’s about women, the other’s about war, both are great reads.

  11. thicketsandthings answered: the sun also rises might be the best place to start for a novel, but i would first dabble with some of his short stories.
  12. texnessa answered: what? the sun also rises is my favourite but for whom the bell tolls and a farewell to arms are also near and dear
