‘The Old Man & The Sea’ in Four Minutes or Less

Have you ever wanted to read Hemingway and been turned off by the prose? I have an alternative for you today.

Gizmodo has turned up the most unusual Cliff Notes version of the novel that I have ever seen. It’s a 4 minute video of someone drawing the story – one scene at a time – in pen and ink. It leaves out some of the nuances in the story, but it is fascinating to watch nonetheless.
