it was amazing
Read from August 09 to 11, 2011

Honestly, everyone who saw me reading this said it was dry, boring, and there is absolutely no excitement. Everyone is stupid. This piece is written in an extremely simple manner, yet it's so descriptive that the novella ends up coming off way more exciting and deep than what's actually being presented. It's a tale of an old man hunting a marlin. That's it. It spans way longer than it should, yes, but the way it is written definitely captivated me throughout. Not once did I put this tale down.
