Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his craft. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961.

RIDICULOUS EDITING!! DON'T BUY FROM THIS PUBLISHER FOR THE LOVE OF HEMINGWAY!!!!!!

IF HEMINGWAY COULD SEE THIS COPY HE WOULD PROBABLY FIGHT THE PUBLISHER ONE-ON-ONE AND BREAK HIS NECK.

HOW CAN SOMEONE EDIT A MASTERPIECE AS BADLY AS THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS BEYOND ME! AN UTTER NEGLIGENT ACT FROM THE PART OF THE EDITOR/ PUBLISHER.

Overhyped

Dont know how this won Pulitzer and also helped Hemingway win Nobel. I would say it is over hyped and is a simple story of an old fisherman, much like what they show on Discovery channel. Felt like reading the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Over all an average one.

Terrible print

The book is an old favourite of mine and I recently decided to buy myself a new copy (the old one has fallen victim to the borrowed-and-never-returned curse). Most annoyingly, this particular print is rife with terrible typos. I am unable to get through a single page without wanting to tear the pages apart. You- the seller- have ruined Hemingway for me a little bit. Shame on you.

The old man and the sea

This is a story of an old man who hasn’t been able to catch a fish for last 84 days. People start calling him “Salao”, worst form of unluck and make fun of him. A young boy believes in him and goes to fishing with man as he believes there’s a lot to learn from old man. Although he has to go for fishing with some other guys at end because of his parent’s will but he’s unhappy about decision and wants to be with old man. On 85th day old man goes alone and he catches a fish (which turns out to be a giant fish). Story turns around then when man has to spend 3 days in water and fish is not giving u

Physical quality of the book

This is a review of the physical quality of the book rather than the reading matter presented in the book itself. A review of this book can be found anywhere online. But if you are planning to order this copy, and if you're a bibliophile like me, then you'd want to know about the physical quality of the book you are going to get your hands on.

So I bought the old man and the sea published by Arrow books. the one with the huge tidal wave on the cover, 'Ernest Hemingway' in blue at the top and the title in white just under that. This is a really good copy, and I'm most happy with this book's q

terrible mistake

before buying from this publishing house you ought to be aware of the fact that it is terrible as far as typographical mistakes are concerned. so many mistakes that i had to re-read the whole sentence to just get the idea as to what the character is really saying. the cover has a fake gloss that gets removes easily when scratched. wanted to buy this for so long but this publisher has definitely spoiled the whole mood . the rating is striclty made with keeping in mind the publisher's efforts of representation.

The Old man and the Sea.

I ordered this book in Flipkart. I received it the next day. Reading a classic requires lot of patience. This book is not an ordinary book to browse. It must be read very deeply and slowly. Its a real master piece, and for an extra information this Novel has no female characters.

What you make out of life!

We've been raised by a thought that at the end everything goes well. The prince happily marries the princess, the poor becomes rich and the bad characters pay for their sins. Thats a reason why probably we become frustrated when things don't go as per the thought.

Old Man and the Sea is something different, it talks about a man who is the stock of laughter and bad luck to his fellow fisherman but yet doesn't display misery or curses his life. Its about hope combined with hard work as hope alone can't get you to your goal. The effort put by the Old man defies age and appreciates experience. I

Aside from the fact that the book cover is faded for some reason (look at the icon picture), the page quality and print are laughable. Too many typo errors tarnish the last of Hemingway's classics and this to me, is an insult to world literature.

Bottomline: Avoid this seller and go for another one.

Added to my list of wisdom books

Its been a long time since I got a book on hand, which teaches you a lot of things every time you read it. I have read it like 4-5 times already and every time i read, i learn something new, i learn something different.

A must read for everyone and definitely a book to keep in your own personal library.

A story of an undefeated Man

It's first time that I was reading Hemingway. Nobody really suggested me this book. I just found out it here only, in the Flipkart. I like to roam around in the Book section, cruise through all those lovely and tempting books.

So, I won't tell you the details as it is a short story. Character detailing is what makes Hemingway such a class apart. At times, you'll love the old man and his self-contradictory remarks.

If you have some free time daily (it doesn't matter really), maybe while travelling to your work or you feel like you are ailing again and again and can't pull it anymore, read it.

If the reading gets bored, you might get lost into sea like the old man... :P

Like the old man in the book you might get lost into sea literally, if you get bored in between. The language is simple, even though you might find it difficult for some of the fishing related terms.

The book is supposed to be shortest novella by the famous author which also brought him esteemed Pulitzer and Nobel prize. It is also his last major novel.

Till page 70-75 it feels long and boring but shows some inspiring courage and determination of the lead character. It starts with describing his relationship with fisher-boy and the old man's bad luck of not catching anything for days togethe
