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.

On the one hand, I hated this book. It upset me for days. On the other hand, it is incredibly written. Worth it, but make sure you can A)discuss it with someone else and B)have some Terry Pratchett/Diana Wynne Jones/what-have-you to cheer you up after. Leggi recensione completa
