The Old Man and the Sea

The Old Man and the Sea
Ernest Hemingway
classic
2 stars
140 pages

an old man goes out to sea to fish. Gets a huge fish which drags him all over the sea. Subdues it and begins his trek home. Sharks eat all of the meat on the fish.

Hemingway blew his head off with a shotgun. After reading this, I’m not surprised. What a complete waste. Not terrible or something that made me hate it, but so pointless. As was the author’s life. Glad to have read one book by him though. Now I KNOW to avoid any others.
