Boring old man fishing
The story was about a starving cuban fisherman who went out fishing.He had not caught a fish in 84 days. He has his young apprentice help him everyday. He then goes fishing and spears a very big marlin after struggling with it for many days so he tied it to his boat. The blood from the marlin is smelled by sharks so they attacked the boat. He fought off the sharks and killed one. The entire marlin was eaten by the sharks and was nothing but a skeleton. He got home and he more respect from the other fisherman and he also got sicker and coughed up blood.

I hate fish this book was written about fish. This was torture to read.
I agree with this because the book was horrible and boring and just not even remotely enjoyable.
I thought this book writing style was not that good, the dialogue was awful, there was no interesting parts in any part of the story, and the characters didn't really have anything special about them.
This book didn't really remind me of another more like watching gray paint dry on a wall. It did not remind me of any other book I have ever read because no other book I ever read was this dull.
This quote means that you can never take away a man's feeling of something and can't stop him from doing it, you can only stop him for a short period of time.
I hated the book and will never read it again ever, me and the book are mortal enemies.
