The Old Man and the Sea

by Ernest Hemingway

About this title: Set in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Havana, Hemingway's magnificent fable is the story of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish. It was The Old Man and the Sea that won for Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Literature. Here, in a perfectly crafted story, is a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man's challenge to the elements in which he lives. Not a single word is superflous in this widely admired masterpiece, which once and for all established his place as one of the giants of modern literature.

Note: This is a general synopsis. Each listing is described below.

Papa wrote a oner., Oct 17, 2009
by dekesolomon

"Not in the least intimidated by the physical and philosophical heft of 'Moby-Dick,' Hemingway's novella, 'The Old Man and the Sea' stands next to Melville's triumphal door-stop and dares to ask which is the ultimate fish story. This writer, being a coward, chooses 'The Old Man and the Sea' on technical grounds: Moby-Dick was not a fish. Thus thoughtful readers are left to decide for themselves."

My Favorite Hemmingway, Oct 13, 2008
by skyprincess

"I have read many of Hemmingway's book and this one is my favorite. I read it to my son when he was about nine and he loved it also. There are wonderful images conveyed of an earlier Cuba, the ocean, fishing and aging in this timeless classic. Short and sweet, this book is perfect for an afternoon, or a vacation read while on a cruise."

A Piece of Literary Art, Oct 4, 2008

"what i really liked about this book is the ability of the author to intrigue the reader mostly by his narrative, despite the lack of dialogue. Only a master at his talent could achieve that."
