    Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic "The Old Man and the Sea" is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal -- a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely successful novella confirmed ... Show more

Papa wrote a oner.

by dekesolomon on Oct 17, 2009

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

by skyprincess on Oct 13, 2008

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

by Nayla on 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.

The Sea is Life

by Ron Townsend on Jun 9, 2007

The old fisherman is determined to find a big fish after a long time with nothing and finally, encouraged by a small boy, finds a huge marline which he lashes to the skiff. He is too far out, however, and the blood of the marlin has drawn sharks which nibble the marlin to smithereens. Even his gallant effort to protect the marlin by fighting the sharks leaves him with a 18 foot skeleton. The moral of this story is very simple: no matter how difficult life becomes, don't quit. The simple words and allusions to life in general in this story that was mentioned in the Nobel Prize committee's statement when awarding Hemingway the Nobel Prize in 1954 prove that length is not essential for a good story. Mr. Hemingway has always been my hero in words. I hope he is to you too.
