131. Book Review | The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

In Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemingway tells the story of an elderly fisherman in Cuba who’s struggling to make ends meet. He’s poor, and desperately so. He has a young man who helps him, and he mentors him some.

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway

The story is a lot about grit, determination, and striving to regain the vibrancy of youth. I won’t give away the story, but it is a great embodiment of the Stoic ideal as this old man battles with nature out at sea.

If you know someone who likes adventure stories, this is a fantastic book for them. I will admit that it has points that it gets a bit slow, but it is normally short and gets back to the action quickly.
