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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

i don't think its for today generation, its too slow and the outcome is clear.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ernest Hemingway again?

i don't think i will listen to Ernest, i heard a lot about this book but its not for this time anymore, there are much better writers today. with further more exciting stories.

don't get me wrong he is a grate writer, but i my opinion not for today.

Would you be willing to try another one of Donald Sutherland’s performances?

the performance was very boring and slow, i appreciate the effort but this is not for me.

the book is like points and it lacks explanation, it gives you a point and them one example, it doesn't go deeper in to the subject, i would use the book to tech at a university but not to teach my self.
