Review by Library Journal Review

Donald Sutherland's reading of 1953's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea--the novel tipped the Nobel scales in Hemingway's favor--alas, should be fed to the sharks. Quite disappointing since Sutherland has turned in countless top-drawer performances in a wide variety of films and clearly is a solid actor. He sounds like he's phoning it in here and is seriously trumped by Charlton Heston's 1977 Grammy-winning Old Man reading included in Caedmon's The Ernest Hemingway Audio Collection. Nonetheless, with Old Man's continued popularity and perseverance in high school and college curricula, you may want to purchase it. --Michael Rogers,Library Journal (c) Copyright 2010.
