For Whom the Bell Tolls might be just as good but i'm not sure about that. The Sun Also Rises is pretty good but if you miss the indirect reference that explains the protagonists' penis was rendered useless by a war-injury the book can be confusing.
I also just read this. I'm not the biggest fan of the style, but I did enjoy how most (or at least much) of what's really going on in The Sun Also Rises is merely implied and not stayed outright. I also think this is intersting when juxtaposed with the rather straightforward, cut and dry nature of the prose itself.

Please. What makes you a pleb isn't what book you read, it's what you get out of it. If you look at all of the words in Finnegans Wake, but get absolutely bugger-all out of it, that doesn't make a "patrician", it makes you a pleb who wasted a bunch of time. And if you've really just read a whole book of Hemingway's, and it left you so totally blank that you had to toddle off to /lit/ so they can tell you what opinions you should have, you're pleb forever. Come back when you have some opinions to share.
