Moby-Dick

Average rating
3 out of 5
Based on 107,462 Ratings and 3,148 Reviews

Book Description
Melville's most ambitious and sumptuously written novel, Moby-Dick remains one of the greatest seafaring adventure stories of all time. With the famous opening line "Call me Ishmael", a young sailor begins his tale of Captain Ahab's obsessional search for the great white whale which long ago took his leg. Melville's work remains a paragon of thematic complexity and poetic beauty.

The story of one man's obsession with what he cannot catch and hold is something anyone from any culture can relat... more
