The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.

Review: The Old Man and the Sea

Recensione dell'utente  - Viktoriya Armyaninova - Goodreads

The story is simple but powerful. After you read it, it kind of stays with you and makes you think. It's like eating potato but having an aftertaste of strawberries. I don't think I will ever be able to forget this book and will most likely read more of Hemingway. Leggi recensione completa

Review: The Old Man and the Sea

Recensione dell'utente  - Jeffery - Goodreads

I have to admit the middle of the book nearly bored the hell out of me, but in the end I came to appreciate Hemingway's style of writing, the concept of man versus nature, and the emphasis of human relationships. Leggi recensione completa
