Amazon Review Here, for a change, is a fish tale that actually does honour to the author. In fact The Old Man and the Sea revived Ernest Hemingway's career, which was foundering under the weight of such post-war stinkers as Across the River and into the Trees. It also led directly to his receipt of the Nobel Prize in an award Hemingway gladly accepted, despite his earlier observation that "no son of a bitch that ever won the Nobel Prize ever wrote anything worth reading afterwards".
A half century later, it's still easy to see why. This tale of an aged Cuban fisherman going head-to-head or hand-to-fin with a magnificent marlin encapsulates Hemingway's favourite motifs of physical and moral challenge.
Yet Santiago is too old and infirm to partake of the gun-toting machismo that disfigured much of the author's later work: "The brown blotches of the benevolent skin cancer the sun brings from its reflection on the tropic sea were on his cheeks. The blotches ran well down the sides of his face and his hands had the deep-creased scars from handling heavy fish on the cords. He saw it first when it jumped in the air, true gold in the last of the sun and bending and flapping wildly in the air.
If a younger Hemingway had written this novella, Santiago most likely would have towed the enormous fish back to port and posed for a triumphal photograph--just as the author delighted in doing, circa Instead his prize gets devoured by a school of sharks.
Returning with little more than a skeleton, he takes to his bed and, in the very last line, cements his identification with his creator: "The old man was dreaming about the lions. It is unsurpassed in Hemingway's oeuvre.

In a perfectly crafted story, which won for Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Lieterature, is a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man's challenge to the elements in which he lives. Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. 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 died in Read more.

I hate to appear as a philistine, but these other reviews must have been written by English literature graduates. This is not a book to read for entertainment or excitement. Dull, dull, dull. A man goes out on a boat to catch fish, takes him two days to land the fish its a big one , man goes home, I think.
Couldn't get to the end without skipping the last 40 pages of a page short story. Serves me right, never watch a film that won awards now applies to books.
Maybe it was relevant when it was written but those days have gone. I'll go back to reading for pleasure now. It says clearly on the cover "Ernest Hemingway", but it turns out that it is based on his book of the same name but is "adapted by Swayam Ganguly" which is says in very small writing inside the cover. The language is NOT that of a Pulitzer prize winning author but I suspect has maybe translated into another language and back again? Or otherwise it has simply been dumbed down for the sake of it.
One of the most beautiful books I have read in my life. Hemingway is a master of words and conveys so much more in a few short sentences than many other writers do in pages. His dialogue is wonderful and the way that the old man's fishing trip becomes about something entirely different is though-provoking and moving. I would recommend this book to everyone. My first experience of Hemingway, I enjoyed the old English language and the sentiment that this story carries. It's beautifully written, the relationship between the Old Man and the sea is one of wonder, love and respect.
Unfortunately, there are several typing errors within the book. I noticed it was flagged that the publisher has been informed before I bought it. I'm sorry it hasn't been corrected yet. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of Ernest Hemingway and I will look forward to reading more. At the risk of seeming a philistine, I didn't enjoy reading Old Man and the Sea and finished it feeling thoroughly disappointed.
The story details the depressing tale of an old fisherman, no longer in his prime and on a run of bad luck, chasing a remarkably large fish, only for it to be desecrated by sharks on the return journey. The moral of determination and strength is not lost however the tone of the book seemed uncharacteristically dreamy and whimsical yet the writing's flow felt blunt and basic. I wouldn't recommend this book. One person found this helpful.
My only gripe is that the illustrator has not understood that there are 3 names for a fish named either a Dolphin not the mammal , a Mahi Mahi or Dorado. The illustrations of the old man catching and butchering a mammal dolphin should be replaced with him catching and filleting the Dorado.
Look it up in google and see what I mean. Having caught a Dorado and eaten many cooked ones I can personally say they are delicious. For this particular edition it looses a star.
Read as a straight work of fiction, it is a fine book. IMHO of course. Will read another of his books soon. See all reviews from the United Kingdom. Top international reviews.

The old man spoke of nothing but shoes. Your boots, they are expensive, well made. That tells me that you come from a wealthy family.
Pushkin's immediate source was the Brothers Grimm, but it would be hard to guess this. As well as being entirely Russian in manner, the tale also reflects Pushkin's engagement with questions of Russian history. During this second 'Boldino autumn' Pushkin composed not only 'The Bronze Horseman', the greatest of his works devoted to the figure of Peter the Great, but also several works relating to Catherine the Great. As well as writing the whole of 'The Queen of Spades', which includes reminiscences of her reign, he completed the final draft of 'A History of Pugachov', a historical work about the terrible peasant and Cossack rebellion that Catherine managed to put down only with great difficulty.

After the triumphant end of the Napoleonic Wars in , the British took it upon themselves to complete something they had been trying to do since the sixteenth century: find the fabled Northwest Passage. For the next thirty-five years the British Admiralty sent out expedition after expedition to probe the ice-bound waters of the Canadian Arctic in search of a route, and then, after , to find Sir John Franklin, the Royal Navy hero who led the last of these Admiralty expeditions. Enthralling and often harrowing, The Man Who Ate His Boots captures the glory and the folly of this ultimately tragic enterprise.

I think my brain is on vacation— the writing on this was lovely, but I found the story too slow paced for me right now. Fascinating history, even if it makes for poor red-eye flight reading. They canoe alongside the coast to get there.

The thought was both surprising and convincing. I have always associated sea shanties with the folk-song revival and with a kind of English nationalism and naval nostalgia - although a moment's thought tells one that many of them are less to do with England than with America. We never hear shanties sung as they were supposed to be sung, since they are work songs devised to accompany and facilitate specific tasks on board the sailing ships: there were capstan shanties, pumping shanties, windlass shanties and so on.

One late night five years ago, fisherman Giuseppe Pennisi was lying in bed with his laptop propped up on his barrel chest, reviewing video footage captured from his foot boat, the Pioneer. The boat is a bottom trawler. It scoops up fish with a net that bounces across the seafloor at depths of more than 4, feet. A tinkerer, Pennisi likes to keep GoPro cameras attached to the net, allowing him to study the footage and improve his technique.
