    You have the beginnings of a thesis statement, but it's not there yet. In addition to factual information (all of what's in your sentence so far), you also need to take a position or have an opinion about that topic.

    Would it be : The characters in the sun also rises are experiencing the negative after effects of war thus leaving them to be the lost generation....wait are they considered the lost generation or an example of the lost generation? im not sure

    You need to go back and read the article Bobpursley posted.

    Then let us know what you think.

    I know what the lost generation is.......im wondering if my thesis statement is ok though.

    While reading The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, I noticed that the term Lost Generation has an important impact on the values and beliefs that characters such as Jake Barnes have in the story.

    Unless you know for sure that Jake Barnes had any idea that the Lost Generation existed and that he was in it, I'd rephrase.

    Your first attempt is better.
    "The characters in the sun also rises are experiencing the negative after effects of war thus leaving them to be the lost generation"

    Revise that one, and you'll be fine.

    HOW DO I REVISE IT...IM ABOUT TO GO CRAZY like seriously im trying to ask for your help and you just keep saying revise it revise it...im so confused im so stressed and im going to go crazy in a minute..!

    Just use that sentence -- but put capitals and punctuation in the right places. You also need to italicize or underline the title of the book.
