Book Review - The Old Man And The Sea
Despite the sad turn of events in this story of Santiago, an old fisherman who catches the largest fish of his time (after an 85-day dry spell) just to have it eaten by sharks before he could sail back to land with it, this is a fantastic story of courage, triumph, perseverance, acceptance, and determination. The book is extremely well-written (it is Hemingway after all!), and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Have any of you read this book? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
