I have Ernest Hemingway on my mind this week, especially since Old Man and the Sea is one of the American literature books James will be reading for 11th grade. I read the book for the first time myself a few years back. Don't know how I managed to skip it during my high school years. Making up for lost time now and finding I appreciate the books more now than I would have then. And coincidentally, July 21st is the anniversary of Hemingway's birthday.
I was pleased to find a free audio version, narrated by Charlton Heston. I just love his voice, don't you!
Versions of the movie with Anthony Quinn or Spencer Tracy are available on Amazon instant video.
If you are a major Hemingway fan, get the Ernest Hemingway Audiobook library, compiled by publisher Simon and Schuster, narrated by a variety of actors including Donald Sutherland and Stacy Keach.
His books and short stories are also available in ebook online.
Happy Birthday, Ernest Hemingway!
