Enjoyable enough tale of one man battling a large fish on the ocean. I’m not sure this type of thing would be acknowledged today as great writing or worth publishing, but from what I’ve read, it was groundbreaking at the time for it’s use of minimalism and sparse language. A quick read that was not super memorable until perhaps the very end, imho.
