As part of the expatriate community in 1920s Paris, the former journalist and World War I ambulance driver began a career that lead to international fame. Hemingway was an aficionado of bullfighting and big-game hunting, and his main protagonists were always men and women of courage and conviction who suffered unseen scars, both physical and emotional. He covered the Spanish Civil War, portraying it in fiction in his brilliant novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, and he subsequently covered World War II. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. He died in 1961.

One of the great works of Hemingway
Three completely different yet compelling parts of the story . The narrator very skillfully performs the characters with different voices and accents . For me as a non native speaker sometimes difficult to understand ... but it gives a very realistic flavor to the story .

Wohl das persönlichste
Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?
Ich mag ja fast alle seine großen Werke, aber nirgends erscheint er mir menschlich näher als hier. Von der Geschichte her vielseitig, atmosphärisch, persönlich.
