Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea free eBook

One of my favorite writer is Ernest Hemingway.
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American writer and journalist. During his lifetime he had seven novels, six collections of short stories, and two works of non-fiction published, with a further three novels, four collections of short stories, and three non-fiction autobiographical works published after his death. Hemingway's distinctive writing style characterized by economy and understatement had an enormous influence on 20th-century fiction, as did his apparent life of adventure and the public image he cultivated. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, culminating in his 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature. Hemingway's protagonists are typically stoical men who exhibit an ideal described as "grace under pressure"; many of his works are considered classics of American literature.

His novel The Old Man and the Sea"was published in 1952 and won him the 1954 Nobel Prize for literature.

The novel is a touching short story of a man and his will power against the forces of his environment. It is the story of Santiago, an old fisherman who goes without being able to catch fish for many days at a stretch, to the point that his peers start calling him unlucky. In his fishing venture is a young boy, Manolin, who accompanies him, the lad wanting to learn the trade, who believes in him. Now, it happens that even the boy's parents have asked him to leave Santiago's company.
