  • Moby-Dick

    Story
    (1085)

    Labeled variously a realistic story of whaling, a romance of unusual adventure and eccentric characters, a symbolic allegory, and a drama of heroic conflict, Moby Dick is first and foremost a great story. It has both the humor and poignancy of a simple sea ballad, as well as the depth and universality of a grand odyssey.

    What made the experience of listening to Moby-Dick the most enjoyable?

    Frank Muller's narration is extraordinary. Just the sheer number and range of characters he illustrates just using his voice is remarkable, he really brings the story to life.


    Would you recommend Moby-Dick to your friends? Why or why not?

    If there is an abridged version with Frank Muller, then yes. Otherwise, I would not recommend reading or listening to the unabridged version of Moby-Dick. There are long, long passages that I found extremely dry. I don't know if this is intentional and meant to give the reader a sense of a long 3-year journey with intermittent but intense excitement or maybe even represent the whale itself, a huge bulk with a small quantity of precious oil, but at times it was hard to endure.

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would certainly recommend for a light, but heartfelt and entertaining listen. I'm a fan!
