It’s a Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Book Date. Today, I’ll quickly talk about a book that most have as part of their school syllabus – The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It’s a short story written by one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. I’m just a few pages into the book and it’s been quite a relaxing read.
The book, which won Hemingway a Pulitzer Award, starts off as a story about an old man struggling to make a living after a streak of failure, with the help of a young boy, his apprentice. What happens next is something I am waiting to discover. Hopefully in the next few days, I will finish reading it and get the chance to do a full review. *fingers crossed*
