FINALLY!

This got two stars only because the actual story of Moby Dick and Captain Ahab was a great story, by itself a four and a half star. But when you add all the Story of Job and whale anatomy lessons (which accounts for two thirds of the book) this book sinks to the ocean floor like Ahab and the Whale.

Quotes Justin Liked

Herman Melville
“Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Dana You actually read this whole book!?!?! I am so impressed with you Justin!! We had to read this in 10th grade, and it was the only book I just went and grabbed the cliff notes for. I can't figure out why this is a classic! Go Justin!


Justin Listened on CD. Very hard. Almost gave up a few times.
