The Old Man and the Sea: A Review

old man and the sea

Simplistic and endearing, The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway is a classic.

I was surprised at how easy it was to read; the sentences were all at a 3rd grade reading level. The deeper meaning and feelings abound while the old man Santiago is battling with his brother, the fish, could have you reeling for days. No pun intended.

This is my second novel written by Hemingway and I am still quite impressed with the thoughts and feelings portrayed through such a simple and seemingly one dimensional story.
