2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kathy (Kath4) on Sept. 21 2006
Format: Paperback
Believed by many to have been written at the time of Hemingway's innermost struggles, this story provided proof that Hemingway could indeed write a classic after so many years. The Old Man And The Sea tells the story of an aging Cuban fisherman who has gone over eighty days without catching one fish. This string of bad luck comes after having made a career out of fishing in the Gulf Stream. Resisting those who offered help, the old man sets out to sea and indeed catches a giant Marlin. But the story does not stop there. Despite having hooked the Marlin, the old man remains in his boat trying to hold on to the fishing line and his mortality, while the Marlin perseveres in its attempt to escape death. While holding on and writhing in pain, the old man learns more about himself than he ever had before. His spirituality and empathy for others reaches an apex, and his graciousness in defeat reveals the identity of his character. The Old Man And The Sea is a story of revival and hope, followed by reality and defeat. This novel stands out as incredibly well written, a common characteristic of Hemingway novels and short stories. Despite being a short read, this short story leaves the reader with much more to ponder. The Old Man And the Sea is an excellent selection for anyone who can read between the lines. It proves itself as a classic that cannot be ignored. Also recommended: -----katzenjammer -----by Jackson McCrae, totally different but fun like Heller or Sedaris's works.

Very simple read, but the profound meanings in this book are mesmerizing. Such a short read, you may have to read it twice to make sure you didn't miss anything. Anybody who wants a taste of Ernest Hemingway should start with this book

I never read this as a young person for some reason but now that I am an old woman, the old man in this tale might have grabbed my attention it was tender and exciting and exhausting and disappointing all at once. it is so well written that you can just picture the struggle the man had and his strengths and failings all through the night.Excellent fast paced read.
