yep. That was it.
True to the original form of the story, that's for sure. That's just how lacking the plot hook of the original story was, that such a severe abridgement is possible and still conveys pretty much the whole thing. As opposed to that "How to Kill a Mockingbird" video, which got its funnyness by butchering its respective book, instead of being funny by telling it like it is. The Old Man and the Sea is JUST THAT SPARSE. Which is why I say, skip The Old Man and the Sea and go for Life of Pi instead. Now there was a story. And he's got a tiger in the boat in that one. You can't get much better than that!
