really liked it

As others have said, Voyage of the Pequod shines in its beautiful male/male friendships, breathtaking intergalactic panoramas, and and inventiveness in its approach to a retelling of one of the most well-known classics. Having read Moby Dick myself, I have to admit I was a little worried when I heard that Dawson would attempt to fit Melville’s 200,000-word epic into the confines of a short story... but I shouldn’t have worried! Dawson is a master at creating vibrant story-worlds in just a few words, and I would have been just as invested in the fate of a futuristic Pequod’s crew had the original Moby Dick never been written.

I will warn you, though, that it ends in a way you’ll never see coming. ;)
