The old man and the sea was written by Ernest Hemingway and was published in 1982 though the original American print had been published in 1952 The title is exactly what the book is about It is a short story The story is written in one continuous whole and is written from the view of the writer it is very realistic The description of the settings is the dominating factor in this book The author spends a lot of time for describing the sea and what takes place There are a lot of dialogues in the book Example I thanked him already the boy said Ill give him the belly meat of a big fish the old man said Has he done this for us more than once I must give him something more than the belly meat then He is very thoughtful for us The next fragment I find really representative for the whole book because it is a fragment in which the old man is talking to himself like he does all the time and he is saying how great the fish is which he does quite a few times too He is a great fish and I must convince him he thought I must never let him learn his strength nor what he could do if he made his run If I were him I would put in everything now and go until something broke But thank God they are not as intelligent as who kill them although they are The book is about an old man who goes out fishing his profession not as a sport one day He decides to go really far out before the sun comes up Then one of his lines goes under and he hooks the fish But the fish is so strong that he cant pull him up The old man thinks that if he lets the fish pull his boat a sailing-boat the size
