A beautiful allegory of our daily fight with fears, luck and wishes.

Someone might say book's boring , that there's nothing more than the old man and the sea. But for me it was pleasure reading this book. Like what he is going to do then? How he thinks he'll do that ? And finally will he survive ?!
I liked Santiago. I might say I would like to meet with him, of course if he wasn't a fiction. I liked that industrious, kind, experienced fisherman who love what he's doing for living. And how he treats to the sea world...
