When I saw that Donald Sutherland was narrating this masterpiece, I had to hear it. I was not disappointed.
Santiago offers a glimpse of of how to act as a man. He does not dwell on what has happened to him but stays in the moment, reacting to each setback. Always thinking. Always planning ahead.
This is a wonderful novel and very well read by Sutherland.
Writer, journalist and translator of the Romance and Russian languages. Recently a farmer in Maryland.
A great short story by Hemingway. Donald Sutherland is perfect, wish he would do more audiobooks.
Can't believe I waited so long to read this book! But after reading so many other brilliant books by extraordinary writers, makes me appreciate such a beautiful poignant book that kept me 'in the bow of the boat' wanting to lend a hand.. The writing is so beautiful and having it read by Donald Sutherland was perfect! I loved this book and the way he called the fish his brothers and how the sea is like a woman and the moon! And I loved the way we heard him reason each moment of his time! And how I would love to visit Havana Cuba
Hemingway, like Shakespeare had painted many observations of the struggles and victories of life. This read (or listen) should be on everybody's Bucket list.
From Wilm., De. Love reading and audiobooks. Other interests include cooking, attending cultural events, my dogs, birding, music and movies.
Wonderfully narrated by Donald Sutherland, his voice is so pleasant to hear. A great story I have never read before. A masterpiece of literature, no doubt as to why it has become a classic.
