Review: The Old Man and the Sea

The Old Man and the SeaThe Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fantastic read. Hemingway is so much lauded for his sparse prose, I have frankly avoided his work. This is my only sampling of his work thus far and some call it his best. Whether Hemingway’s best or not, I cannot say. But I do know that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I suppose some would think it a tragedy and find it unfulfilling. It seemed to me that Santiago was satisfied with his victory in the end and so was I.
