The old man has gone 84 days without catching a fish, everything about him is old except his eyes, they are the colour of the sea. He finally catches a fish, but this is no ordinary fish, nor is his fierce and determined response.

If you want to get a taste for Hemingway, get this book. At a little over one hundred pages it is an easy read. It is Hemingway at his fluent best. A deceptively simple story told in a style that, I think, is intended to mimic the flow of the Gulf Stream - smooth, calm and sometimes violent but always interesting.

For such a small book this had so much packed in. The main characters consist of a boy and man and their relationship is fascinating. The battles that the man face at sea are gripping and his determination is awe inspiring, he just doesn't stop fighting. A great story from Hemmingway.

I couldn't believe how much hemingway fit into a hundred pages. He fits in an epic battle between man and the elements. An unlucky fisherman catches the motherload of a fish but it is never that easy. The boy is also a good character. Wait for the part when the man's hand cramps. A classic
