    Moby-Dick by Herman Melville is a classic of American and world literature. Written in 1851, this is the incredible story of the crazed captain Ahab who, consumed by his desire for revenge, drives his crew to scour the oceans of the world for the fearsome white whale, Moby Dick. It soon becomes clear that Ahab will stop at nothing and is prepared to risk everything, his ship, his crew members, and his own life. Herman Melville (1819 - 1891) was an American novelist short story writer, essayist and poet.

    JAY says: "THANK YOU..."
    "Very poor narration"
    Overall

    The narrator is British, which creates terrible dissonance for the "great" American novel. The narrator has zero command of American English accent, which is fine, except that he tries to fake the accent when reading lines from American characters. He butchers the accent and greatly distracts from the novel. The narrator does, however, read at a leisurely pace, which is at first annoying until you realize it's a perfect fit for a 3-year voyage at sea: unhurried and plenty of time to tell the tale. The novel itself is rough going, with some parts very smooth and others, such as the cataloging of whale species, murderously boring. On the whole, however, this audio book has made my morning commute in LA a joy.
