Key Features of The Old Man and the Sea

  • Publisher: Random House

The Old Man and the Sea (Paperback) Price: Rs. 150

First published in the year 1951, The Old Man And The Sea is a book that revolves around the life of a fisherman named Santiago, and his struggle with a huge marlin in the Gulf stream.

Summary Of The Book

In the beginning of The Old Man And The Sea, the readers are introduced to the protagonist, who is unable to catch a single fish for 84 days. As a result of him not being able to catch any fish, Santiago is labeled “Salao”, which indicates the highest degree of unluckiness. This causes the parents of one of his young apprentices to bar him from travelling with the protagonist, but venture out for fishing only with successful fishermen.

However, Manolin, his apprentice was faithful to Santiago, and visited him regularly. One day, Santiago reveals his plan to Manolin. The plan involves travelling far into the Gulf Stream, with the intention to put an end to this rough patch in his fishing career. On the 85th day, Santiago sets out on his journey, along with his skiff, into the Gulf Stream. A marlin falls prey to his bait, and the old man struggles to get the fish onto his boat. This battle between the marlin and Santiago continues for three days, leaving both parties absolutely exhausted. At the end of the third day, the fish began to circle the skiff, which indicates that it was fatigued, and the old man pulled it in his boat, stabbing it. The battle wasn’t over yet, as the trail of blood from the marlin attracts sharks towards the boat.

Santiago killed the first shark with his harpoon, and lost it in the process. He makes a new weapon, and continues to battle with an ever-increasing trail of sharks. Will Santiago make it through this intense battle? This book answers these questions and more. The Old Man And The Sea was greatly appreciated by its readers, and fetched Hemingway the Pulitzer Prize For Fiction in the year 1953. It was also considered the reason behind him being awarded the Nobel Prize For Literature. The book was published in 1952.

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.

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

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
