I listened to the version of this book read by Donald Sutherland. His voice was perfect for this novella. This is a quick easy read with deep parallels to life's up and downs, and the message that perseverance pass off, but sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for. I jokingly told my husband it should've been called "Santiago and the Fish...The End" because that's literally what it's about. But all kidding aside, I get the depth of the story. A classic for the ages.
