Reading Hemingway with our son

    1. Me too – I always considered it a tragic tale. But I think our son was relating to the boy, and was glad to see him back in the story, taking care of the old man, being his friend. I think he saw (and showed me) the hope and the goodness in that, and though he knew that losing the fish was awful, having the boy as a friend was better than catching the greatest fish. I had never seen it that way until he asked that question.
