The Old Man and the Sea (Ernest Hemingway) [1952]

Genre: Tragedy, Novella

An epic battle between an old, experienced fisherman and a giant fish, later, when he catches it, he has to fight with sharks. In the end, the fish is eaten. 

It's a good book, but nothing special. Now I feel like that dumbass people who don't appreciate art, but the book is strenuous. Not enough happenings, yet too many unnecessarily description.

Characters: Old man Santiago, Manolino
