    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.

    Even though this is such a famous title, I had never read it before and really didn't know much about it. What a treat this audiobook was. For such a short story, it is surprising how strong the character development is. In no time, you feel a strong affinity for the 2 main non-finned characters. Donald Sutherland does an excellent job of narrating, with just the right amount of drama and accent. For much of the story, he was NOT the narrator, he WAS the "old man". One of my top 3 audiobooks, and I have a couple hundred.

    The NIV Audio Bible is more than a Bible you listen to. It's an experience that helps you enter into God's Word...so God's Word can enter into you.

    Overall

    I have 2 other Audible versions of the Bible (The Listener's NIV & KJV), and although they were both good in their own right, this dramatized version is the best by far. The narration, voices and background sounds really help you to visualize the readings without being overdone. Excellent audio quality lets you hear every word clearly even over road noise. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to spend time in the Word, but has found audio versions to be dry and uninspiring.
