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

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

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoey | 5/12/2011

    " This book is so good, but it is so hard to read. Herman Melville could have summed the book up in about a 3 page story. It is still worth it to be able to say I have read it.

    " Great prose and poetry in this unabridged version. I did find it at times hard to keep my mind in focus with all the details of cetology. "

    " *Consumed as an Audiobook

    Awesome! A bit dry perhaps, but it was very educational and the not-dry parts were CRAZY exciting! Near the end Ahab spends an entire chapter decrying a Sextant. "

About the Author
Author Herman Melville

Herman Melville (1819–1891) was born in New York City. Family hardships forced him to leave school for various occupations, including shipping as a cabin boy to Liverpool in 1839—a voyage that sparked his love for the sea. A shrewd social critic and philosopher in his fiction, he is considered an outstanding writer of the sea and a great stylist who mastered both realistic narrative and a rich, rhythmical prose. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick and the posthumously published novella Billy Budd.
