BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!
This book was full of action and still had the love of fishing. This book was not boring like some others I read and I could not put it down. Good Job Hemingway.
Hemingway at his best.
Old Man and the Sea
The book I found to be mediocre. Very repetitious. Bored halfway through and skimmed to the end. If this was classic genius, I doubt that I will read anymore Hemingway.
