Thanks to Jim Webb for recommending this to me. I enjoyed most of this book. I wish that Melville did not spend so much of the book educating me about whales. However, I do understand and admire what he was trying to accomplish and I think that he executed it well by breaking up his whale education sessions with chapters of story. Also I had no idea that Melville had such a keen sense of humor and also was such a good writer, almost poetic at times. Quite an enjoyable read. And a good lesson about letting go.
