Yes but after awhile
I took breaks
Now I know why I skim read the book before and miss so much. Melville goes in to great detail on the whaling, shipping, weather, pacific ocean, etc that was not great to read but was very good to hear over the head phones.
I haven't finished completely but this has been so good. This is my first audiobook and I have been reading along because I love the book so much. Everyone should listen!
I have been wanting to "read" Moby Dick for some time, but just haven't had the time. Audio is a great way to experiance this classic. Frank Muller made this book come alive...and that is hard to do, because a reader can get bogged down in some of the natural history chapters...but not Muller...I absorbed every bit of it!!!!
Love to read, and Audible has made the two-hour daily commute enjoyable!
"Call me Ishmael" - with this bold beginning the book thunders along.
Half adventure story about madness and revenge as the Pequod and her crew follow Captain Ahab into hell. The other half is a fascinating chronicle of whaling, the history and industry in the early to mid-1800s. The counterpoint of these two parts builds the suspense until the crew finally finds Ahab's nemesis - Moby Dick.
Frank Muller's narration was fabulous. I am absolutely smitten.
NO, I will not ever read anything from Melville again, Frank Muller on the otherhand is great.
Yes, he is always wonderful.
Everyone exept Ahab and the Whale.
Dont waste three days of your life you will not ever get back.
My favorite novel
Ishmeal, because he had so many points of view to tell
Accent, pacing, character. He is a fantastic reader.
Film wouldn't do it
I love Melville's digressions
The prose was well written. Frank Muller did a superb job as usual. I also enjoyed the many layers and typology present throughout the story. And great attention to period-set detail. However, the glaring weakness of the tome: it dragged out. Be it the classic that it is, there is yet waaaay more prose than there is story to merit it. This one is inflated beyond it's contents. Be ye warned.
Longwinded. Beautifully written, but longwinded.
Excellent as usual.
Non-fiction it what I like.........Epic fantasy aren't too bad either
Great prose with this classic but difficult to listen to as an audiobook.
Probably better read than listened to.
Absolutely! Mr. Melville knows his way around words... masterful! A great marriage of story and narrator. The story is ageless. So well done... bravo!!
No favorites... enjoyed every character.
Expertly performed! It was alive; I was THERE! Based on Mr. Muller's narration of Moby Dick, I checked out another book he narrated and returned it without completing the listen... had to double check to ensure I was listening to the same narrator.
No... too long for one sitting.
I've listened to this book several times and will again.
