    " Kept on with this but wasn't a labour of love. Now I understand why my sister found the edited down version long winded! "

    " Some classics are classics because they are well remembered by academics but some are classics because they are just darned good. This book is of the latter's number. I loved this book all the way through. It has a tough reputation as being thinly veiled pop-science but I was thoroughly enchanted by the characters. Similarly I was surprised at the humor in the book which based on its reputation I thought was a humorless slog. I am very glad that I took the time to read this one. The one thing that keeps this book from being a "five star" for me (though I think it deserves that appellation as a piece of literature) is the grisly violence. I am afraid it marred my enjoyment of the novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron Meyer | 1/7/2014

    " This book was a really hard slog at times. With that said it had its really fascinating moments. The story is more geared toward a natural historian and a history about whalers which most people at the time probably didn't know much or care much about. The story of Ahab for most of the book seems more of a backdrop and really doesn't come to the fore until the latter part of the book. The ending is intense and despite the the slogging it was well worth the read. "

    " Can't seem to finish this one entirely, even after it being a required reading for two different classes....oops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack Pickering | 11/7/2013

    " pretty good, but he gets a bit aroused with whale innards porn in some places "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah Nathan | 11/4/2013

    " Some classics should be removed from life support and allowed to wither. Not this one. Required reading. Skip the middle parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daphne Reed | 10/31/2013

    " I was unimpressed, to be frank, by Melville's Moby Dick. The chapters going on about the ship and the anatomy of a whale (as that this became a kind of authority in the study of whales when it become mainstream) may, of course, be a kind of character development device, but I did, overall, feel it took away from the urgency of the hunt. I understand using two opposite situations to highlight them, but I just did not think it work here. *don't shoot* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Johnson | 10/29/2013

    " The writing was good but there was just too much of it. It felt like the author was one of those people at a party who really drag their stories out; thinking they're been dramatic and entertaining but they're just being boring. This definitely wasn't a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Cushman | 10/22/2013

    " I take great comfort that no less a writer than Ray Bradbury called MD "unreadable." There are moments of breath-taking, transcendent writing. And then there are all the chapters on whale body parts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hashim Alsughayer | 10/17/2013

    " Yes Melville's story is considered one of the American classics, but I just wasn't my cup of tea! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor Shane | 10/6/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam Green | 10/4/2013

    " Moby Dick is a tedious textbook on all things whaling, but Melville's outstanding prose gives this book four stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 10/3/2013

    " Great story once you get past the slow beginning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keturah Barchers | 1/21/2013

    " I hated it while I read it. I slogged through, determined that the book would not beat me. But now that I have had the time to mull it over I may read it again because there were some truly beautiful parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 8/20/2012

    " The second time I've read it. The first time was over 30 years ago. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Coats | 4/22/2012

    " Skip Skip Skip. I'm pretty sure he was payed by the word. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal O'Leary-Davidson | 1/4/2012

    " Ladies, don't make the mistake of thinking this is a "boy's book." Melville was postmodern before there was postmodernism. One of the most profound books I have ever read. Thanks goes out to my grad. school professor, Dr. Joseph Andriano for introducing this book to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Berrio | 10/11/2011

    " Never before have I so thoroughly enjoyed a book and yet wanted to strangle myself with my own entrails while doing so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra | 8/21/2011

    " Hardest book I've ever read. Apparently full of endless deep meaning. Mr. Orehotsky! "

  • 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 Erin | 5/20/2011

    " Best book. Of. All. Time. "

  • 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. "

  • 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.

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.
