This is an excellent version of Moby Dick. I had to read the book for a book club and decided to go with an audio version. It was an excellent choice. The narrator's voice is perfect for Ishmael, calm and introspective. The sermon chanter is exceptionally powerful.
A well done recording of a book I probably would not have enjoyed had it not been for this fine recording.
The book is excellent. But I am somewhat disappointed in the reading of it. The reading is breathy. The pace is awkward, with halting pauses in strange places, such as between the end of a quotation and the following "said ___." For me, the book deserved a more powerful reader.
But that said, even with this reading it is still a great book to listen to. And definitely get the unabridged version, not one of the abridged versiona.
