Written in 1851, this is the incredible story of the crazed captain Ahab who, consumed by his desire for revenge, drives his crew to scour the oceans of the world for the fearsome white whale, Moby Dick. It soon becomes clear that Ahab will stop at nothing and is prepared to risk everything, his ship, his crew members, and his own life.
Herman Melville (1819 - 1891) was an American novelist short story writer, essayist and poet.

Bookaholic. Favorite authors- Agatha Christie, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert A Heinlein.
Way too long winded, wish I had bought the abridged version instead of this one.
It isn't the book or the reader, it is the length of the reading. Normally I enjoy the Unabridged versions but this was a very tough one. This is the only audio book I couldn't finish. As mentioned, usually I am a stickler for the Unabridged, but in this case I would highly recommend the Abridged version!
