    The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

    Dave says: "Truly a Classic"
    "a word of caution"
    Overall

    This review is more in regards to the narrator (Donald Sutherland) not the story.

    I found the delivery to be off putting for the following reason. Through out the whole reading you get a few nicely spoken lines, thereby followed by very empty and monotone line(s). I do enjoy the story, no complants with that. Just might want to listen real close to the sample provided.
