    Herman Melville’s classic masterpiece tells the story of the wandering sailor Ishmael and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab seeks one specific whale, Moby Dick, a white sperm whale of tremendous size and ferocity. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg, and Ahab intends to take revenge. The first line—"Call me Ishmael"—is one of the most famous opening lines in American literature.

    Greg Saven says: "An intolerable reading of a great novel."
    "A story or advertising copy?"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A narrator who knows how to read aloud.


    If you’ve listened to books by Herman Melville before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Conlan’s performances?

    Definitely not! He sounds like he is reading an advertisement, not telling a story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Moby-Dick?

    None. A classic shouldn't be abridged.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my credit back for this book.
