Outstanding O's #atozchallenge

Day 15 of the April A to Z Challenge

A Book Extravaganza - featuring classics and some of my favorite books

Classic: The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

Synopsis: It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss.

My Favorite: The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton



  1. Groan. Groan. Groan. No. Not the Old Man and the Sea... (Had to read it in school. Hated it.)

    The Outsiders, on the other hand...

    1. I had to read both the Old Man and the Sea and The Outsiders in school. I liked them both. What was frustrating with the Old Man and the Sea was that I finished it early and I had to read it all over again when a test on it came up. ~Meg
