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.
never really got around to reading this story until now I can see why it won the Nobel Prize it's a quality short story which exemplifies man's internal struggle with himself the sea and the dangers of being a large fish fisherman.
the beginning was a little slow but once out to sea the story only gets better as ot goes I tHink it was the narrators tone at the beGinning but he picks up and does this timeless classic justice.
