The Old Man and the Sea Author:Ernest Hemingway A novella, The Old Man and Sea tells the story of an old fisherman, Santiago, and his long lusty struggle isn't so much over one fish, but the act of living -- living fully, actively, robustly.
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.
This is a quick read that makes you continue to think long after you have set the book down. I especially enjoyed this book since I like fishing, but a person who has never touched a line to the water can still take a lot away from this work.
