Description

The voyage of the whaling ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab, who leads his crew on a hunt for the great whale Moby Dick, reveals a profound meditation on society, nature, and the human struggle for meaning, happiness, and salvation. Often considered the epitome of American Romanticism, the novel is now considered one of the greatest novels in the English language.

    Epic read. Archaic language a challenge but not insurmountable. Gut wrenching and intensely sad descriptions of dying whales and a timeless wisdom of the author made it a page turner for me. Keen sailors will find extra layers of interest, a real bonus. I'm almost tempted to rewrite it in the dumb downed modern vernacular that would give it another burst of popularity...Moby I will.
