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  - Tish Forteath - Goodreads

I liked this book when I was in school, so I thought I'd like rereading it, but I didn't. I was bored by the endless description of being at sea. The overall plot is good; it was just the monotonous details that bogged me down. Leggi recensione completa

Review: The Old Man and the Sea

Recensione dell'utente  - Harsh Saglani - Goodreads

A brilliant work of fiction by Ernest hemingway! The way he writes is one of my favorites. His style of writing does influence people to do something. As in this book he gives us a moral that we should never loose our hope and we should try our best to achieve what we want. Leggi recensione completa
