Great, short read. I love Hemingway and once again, so much happens with so little action. I never would have thought that a story about a man fishing out at sea could keep me entertained for 150 pages! I definitely recommend reading it!
Classic story of man vs nature that is laced with deeper meaning. Works as an adventure story and a story to make you think of your place in the world and the parallels in your life. Quick read, but powerful.
