Beautiful story, masterfully read. Was not expecting to be so captivated by a simple story. Hemingway definitely had talent for telling a story.
i liked the symbolism of youth and aging. the struggle with life in old age symbolized by the fish.
This is a good reading with good sound and recording. A classic tale.
My first Hemingway, and I find myself wondering if I would have provided the required prospective to pass some stuffed shirts expectations?
I found myself conflicted in the end. The ending was still a surprise as I expected a different ending.
I have to add that Donald may not have made his bread and butter doing this, but he can read me a story anytime. I teared up a couple of times; was it the story or Donald?
Excellent narration and production. I listen as I travel and I can always tell how great the story is by how long I sit and listen after I've reached my destination .
Read More Bit*h!
Story about a guy who philosophically contemplates life while doing hard work. A story about an O.G. For sure. Cool.
I listen til about a book a month, sometimes more, sometimes less... great for commuting
I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved the way the author played with the words and my feelings..
A true story of grit and determination.

Hemingway is truly one of the all-time masters of the written word. With Donald Sutherland as the narrator of the story it really comes to life.
