    Moby-Dick is widely considered to be the Great American Novel and a treasure of world literature. The story details the adventures of the wandering sailor Ishmael and his voyage on the whale ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab seeks one specific whale: Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg. And Ahab intends to take revenge.

    G.T. says: "Solid narration of a timeless classic"
    "Competent, budget version of astounding book."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Moby Dick: or the Whale to be better than the print version?

    I read this in conjunction with the print version, and the two complement one another very well.


    What other book might you compare Moby Dick: or the Whale to and why?

    LIFE OF PI is another book about an ocean voyage in which the allegorical and symbolic elements are matched by the chatty, discursive approach.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    His tone is a little soporific at times, and every once in a while he mispronounces a word, but overall it's very competent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's whales all the way down.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful experience listening to this in the car.
