The Old Man and the Sea


I recently finished reading The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It’s a short but confusing read and I’m not sure I entirely understood everything, maybe that’s a good thing. But it also got me thinking about the TV series Westworld. A lot of the criticism aimed at that show came down to people not understanding what was going, but after reading this book I think that’s quite refreshing. In a world where things get dumbed down and presented in an overly simplistic manner, I like having to wrestle with stuff. Not knowing what to make of something and meditating on it a bit isn’t a bad thing and I actually got more from this through this experience.
