    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.

    Any additional comments?

    I realize this is a classic, and I am ashamed that this is the first time I have read/listened to it, but I found it incredibly boring. I couldn't even imagine trying to read it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Humorous Short Stories of Mark Twain to be better than the print version?

    Never read the printed version


    What other book might you compare The Humorous Short Stories of Mark Twain to and why?

    Roughing it be Mark Twain. Twain has an incredible sense of humor that really comes out in these two books.

    Filled with breakneck action and authentic detail, Hermit's Peak is Michael McGarrity's most involving novel yet.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Hermit's Peak?

    The narrator stinks and it is abridged. Also the long silent pauses between chapters are very annoying.


    What didn’t you like about J. Ed Araiza’s performance?

    The tone and cadence of the narration was all wrong. Maybe I just got use to George Guidall. But I did not like Araiza's style.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    As always Mcgaritys work is great. This story really starts to pull together several backstories.
