Kiri (Kirini) | 3 comments Thanks Judy, I did enjoy Moby Dick, although I found parts of the middle section a little bit hard going!

Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments It does slow down in places, but its any and everything you could ever want to know about whaling at the turn of the century, huh? i see it as a non-fiction and fiction book all in one. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
