The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's beautifully written. It's about love, loneliness, poverty, injustice, and just going on in lonely old age.
The first time I read this I was lukewarm about it. It was only on my second reading that I appreciated the sadness (and happiness) of it more. But it was tough to get through both times even though it's short because it's so much fishing. It's as exciting as fishing will ever be, but it's still a lot of fishing.
