Book: The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
Reason I said no before: Dislike (or fear of) Classics
Did this book change my mind: Yes! I actually really liked it (i’m kinda shocked to be honest). First, it wasn’t hard to read like I had been assuming Ernest Hemingway would be. It was actually pretty easy, I read the book in 2 days. Second, it was a simple story with powerful meaning behind it. After reading so much fantasy, love triangles, and teen girl/boy angst it was nice just to read a good story that has meaning behind it. Don’t get me wrong I still love my normal YA reads and I won’t be switching to all classics anytime soon but next time I get a little burnt out on my normal reading choices I will be trying another classic. Maybe i’ll tackle Pride and Prejudice like I’ve always wanted!
