    Description

    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.

    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 al...

    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 an...

    Brilliant

    I am not going to write anything about the content, as even thinking about that is idiotic. The printing of the book is very good with large enough font. Though not mentioned, it is an unedited and unabridged edition.

    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.
