This is a beautiful book: a fable about stoicism, patience, acceptance, joy and endurance. It follows the relationship between a young boy and an old fisherman - pupil and teacher - and the capture of a very big fish.
Hemingway whisks you away to another place, where life is simple, but you feel in touch with universal truths.
The writing is stunning. I can't wait to read more. The repackaged covers that Arrow have produced are also gorgeous, so this will be a print collection I build, rather than on the Kindle.
Let me know if you have a particular Hemingway favourite that I should read next.
