About the Book
Some battles are meant to be fought and conquered on your own - like the one between Santiago and a large marlin. Ernest Hemingway in his book, The Old Man and the Sea, takes us on a trip to the shores with the central character Santiago, an aged fisherman. After being unable to catch fish for 84 days, he is seen as a “salao” (unlucky) by his village folk. On the eighty-fifth day, Santiago ventures into the Gulf Stream, north of Cuba, only to be attacked by a marlin. What follows is an adventurous episode between the old man and the sea. Will Santiago be able to tackle the fish? Will his streak of bad luck come to an end? A cosy evening with this book will lead you to the answers to these questions. This book by Ernest Hemingway won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953.
