“He was ana old man who fished alone…he had gone eighty-four days without a fish”
A lovely classic book set on the heart of the Gulf Stream, and the core about the boy, an old man, and a fish that could have been a dream. This man was born to be a fisherman, and it had been eighty four days since a fish had been in his hands. But, one day, early in the morning, he caught a massive fish, over three thousand pounds – was luck increasing? And was it wise to leave the fish in the water? A book for any one to read. I give this a four star ****.
It is Vintage Classics and suitable for both boys and girls.
