[Novel] The Old Man and the Sea (Ernest Hemingway)

Old Man and the SeaHemingway’s masterful prose and all those deep themes about aging, perseverance, and whatever else don’t change the fact that the book is painfully dull. It might be more fun to read it as an allegory for Hemigway’s career instead of as a story on its own, since otherwise you will, doubtless, fall asleep.

Positive: Negative:
Eloquent, precise prose Painfully dull plot and characters
Thought-provoking on aging, perseverance, and the natural order of things
Interesting as an allegory for Hemingway’s career
