    About the Author

    Ernest Miller Hemingway was a noted sportsman, journalist, and novelist. Hemingway wrote most of his works between the mid-1920s to the mid-1950s. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in the year, 1954. Hemingway has written seven novels, six short story collections, and two works of non-fiction. Besides writing, Hemingway was a great sportsperson as well. This could be a reason for his frequent affiliation towards portraying tough characters in his works, including soldiers, hunters, and bullfighters. Some of the noted works of Hemingway include, Indian Camp, The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea.

    About the Book

    Some battles are meant to be fought and conquered on your own - like the one between Santiago and a large marlin. Ernest Hemingway in his book, The Old Man and the Sea, takes us on a trip to the shores with the central character Santiago, an aged fisherman. After being unable to catch fish for 84 days, he is seen as a “salao” (unlucky) by his village folk. On the eighty-fifth day, Santiago ventures into the Gulf Stream, north of Cuba, only to be attacked by a marlin. What follows is an adventurous episode between the old man and the sea. Will Santiago be able to tackle the fish? Will his streak of bad luck come to an end? A cosy evening with this book will lead you to the answers to these questions. This book by Ernest Hemingway won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953.

    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.

    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.

    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 o...

    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...
