The Old Man And The Sea – Ernest Hemingway

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

This is the first Hemingway book I’ve ever read but it certainly won’t be the last (in fact, I’ve already added ‘The Sun Also Rises’ to my Kindle!)

This story of a poor, down on his luck fisherman’s titanic struggle to land the catch of his life is simply but masterfully rendered – I read this tucked up in bed at 3am but still felt the blazing sun on my back and the salt drying stiffly on my skin.
