The Old Man and the Sea is a simple yet deep narrative of an old man on a journey to catch the ultimate fish. It’s a little book with an artistic emotion and a strong power of visualization.

“Set in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Havana, Hemingway’s magnificent fable is the story of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish. In a perfectly crafted story, which won for Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Literature, is a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man’s challenge to the elements in which he lives.” – Goodreads: The Old Man and the Sea
