it was ok
Recommended to Angela by: Jeffrie Murphy
Recommended for: Young men curious about their sexuality; all who like legal/nautical themes.
Read in January, 2002

Melville takes roughly 100 pages to tell a story that might have been a fraction of the length if it weren't for all the stopping to describe in eyebrow-raising detail those sweaty, swarthy, muscular, tanned sailors.
