Book 39 for 2016: The Old Man and the Sea

I have wanted to read a Hemingway book for years, so finally finding the time these holidays was a real treat. Sure the fact that it is a relatively short read played a part in it selection this close to the end of the year. But boy am I glad I read it!
I loved the simplicity of the read. So easy to get into the head of the old man and just feel your way through the story. Plus after doing some research afterwards it was refreshing to hear Hemingway talk about the story as devoid of extraneous meaning. The old man was simply that; and old man. And the sea was just the sea.
