La lucha de un hombre obstinado contra una ballena Moby Dick es considerado por la critica como una de las novelas mas importantes de la literatura universal ya que aunque aparentemente es la simple historia de un marinero obsesionado por cazar una elusiva ballena, es un inmenso poema lirico que tiene como fondo el ansia de triunfo de todo ser humano. La ballena es el simbolo de ese ideal que se lucha por alcanzar y por esa combinacion de lo simbolico con el argumento apasionante de la persecucion de la ballena, esta obra del escritor estadounidense Herman Melville ha apasionado a los lectores desde su publicacion. Es una obra emocionante y apasionante que no tiene paralelo literario.

This masterpiece has attracted readers since its publication. It is an exciting and fascinating work that does not have any literary parallel, and is considered among the greatest novels in world literature.

    " First few chapters were good. But as soon as the ship sailed every chaper was about whales, whaling, and life on a whaling ship. The story seemed to get lost in the the whaling descriptions and doesn't show up again until the last few chapters. Even then it didn't come back very strongly. "

    " Moby Dick is a relatively unknown book about Captain Ahab's quest for revenge against the white whale. If you've never heard of it, I highly recommend it. Epic. Strange. A perfect novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 1/2/2014

    " just not my kind of book...totally uninterested in the subject matter. Made to read in hs "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 1/1/2014

    " OMG!! when Rowan has to read this in school I will either excuse her from that week or audit the class... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina Morel | 12/31/2013

    " This was much better after I read Ahab's Wife...... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Agatha Diaz | 12/29/2013

    " What lies beneath this literary classic is much more than a story of a madman (Captain Ahab) pursuing a white whale all in the name of vengeance. In fact, Moby Dick is Melville's commentary on the human condition. Each chapter, character, and whaling story is an allegory. I struggled with deciphering the symbolism, but I appreciated the complexity behind the stories and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jade | 12/24/2013

    " 80% encyclopedia on whales and whaling, 20% of story, but the 20% was really good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Graeme | 12/22/2013

    " One of the very few books i could not push through. Dry. Maybe I'll give it another go one day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela Sikorski | 12/3/2013

    " One of the very first books I ever read and is still in my mind and made a book reader out of me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 12/3/2013

    " A killer. Read it on Mykonos in Greece in the winter. Perhaps one of the greatest books of all time, but it it wasn't for Ishmael and Quequog, I never would have made it through Ahab's unhealthy obsessions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherrill Hall | 11/24/2013

    " sin travels freely while virtue is stopped at every port. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis Soran | 11/20/2013

    " It's a classic for a reason "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor Shane | 11/4/2013

    " I even liked the boring parts... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rusty | 10/30/2013

    " This book could serve as a textbook for a class on whaling. While many think it tedious, it is a must read. The book is too often referenced to ignore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chas Bayfield | 4/28/2013

    " Well, everyone has a favourite book and this is mine. From the first 'call me Ishmael' it drags the reader into it and doesn't let go. I skimmed over some of the natural history but the scale and style was almost Biblical. properly awesome. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/14/2013

    " I really wanted to love this, but god was it boring! There were definitely some gems hidden among the seafaring ramble, so for that probably worth reading. But it was slow going for me. All narration, little action. By the time we got to the infamous Ahab, I just didn't care. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Murley | 2/21/2013

    " Didn't read this until I was an adult...probably appreciated it more...one of my all time favorites. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sammmmmmi | 10/30/2012

    " Really, I hated this book. I truly don't know how anyone could find killing a bunch of whales and fighting whales is entertaining on any level. Sorry, I just didn't see the point, the reason for this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Bullock | 9/14/2012

    " I kept waiting for the boring part...there wasn't one. "

    " Last book I read in college. Loved it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth White higley | 6/4/2012

    " The only book I actually fell asleep in the middle if reading.....enough said. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pinks2000 | 1/24/2012

    " A 5 star novella cleverly hidden within an 1 star encyclopedia of whaling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mesha'el Alturki | 12/22/2011

    " I want to give it another try.. I'll re-read it inshallah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Camp | 10/10/2011

    " The audiobook is a great companion to listen to after reading this thoroughly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Neary | 8/10/2011

    " I read this novel in college. I loved it. I am reading it again for pleasure and I am still loving the characters and story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 7/23/2011

    " For a book that has that deadly 'classic' air about it, Moby Dick really does draw you in. A great pick for deep winter. I'm a lot less surprised that I know more than a couple people who have read this book more than once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernadette | 6/27/2011

    " One of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. Forget the symbolism, it's not even the story itself that I love. It's the exquisite language, the turn of phrase. I read the book with a highlighter in my hand so that I could easily go back, again and again, and re-read passages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 5/24/2011

    " Not only did I enjoy the story, but I learned a lot about whales. Whaling is such a big part of our history and this helped me to understand what exactly it all entailed and why it was such an important industry. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Guy | 5/23/2011

    " Not sure I can make it through this one . . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/22/2011

    " The "War & Peace" or "Les Misérables" of whaling; unfortunately I think his execution meandered and failed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/22/2011

    " Wow. Best book I've ever read, no shit and much to my surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 5/21/2011

    " Frank Muller is a superb audio book reader. An epic reader for an epic story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 5/19/2011

    " Few better in American literature. Everyone should read this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle | 5/15/2011

    " one of those lovely books we had to read for English "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 5/13/2011

    " This is the second reading of Moby Dick and it was fantastic. The best American novel; beats Huckleberry Finn and The Great Gatsby by leaps and bounds. "
