The Old Man and the Sea

by Ernest Hemingway

4.4/5

The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream.

“Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.”
