Moby Dick by Herman Melville Book Summary

In his first battle with the great white whale, Captain Ahab lost his leg. Living with the constant reminder of his failure, Ahab gathers a second expedition, with the singular purpose of hunting and killing the beast that crippled him. Told from the perspective of crew-member Ishmael, the hunt for Moby Dick leads the crew ever further from civilization and deeper into the madness of their vengeful captain. At once a rousing adventure, a thorough examination of the whaling industry, and a dramatic tragedy on par with Shakespeare and the Greek playwrights, Moby Dick is the ultimate American literary epic.

Moby Dick (Herman Melville) Book Reviews

How does one judge the most important book written in the English language?My mind cries for anyone rating Moby Dick as less than perfect. If you didn't like it, you didn't read it. Keep it near by and read it later when you're more able..Score: 5/5

Wish zero stars was an option...The story was enjoyable but the book is full of nonsense ramblings that have nothing to do with the adventure. If everything that had nothing to do with the story was edited out it would be about two thirds smaller. Don’t waste your time..Score: 1/5

Beyond what is great in book!This book ls many things in a book. A historical novel with vivid descriptions of the hard work, and life threading perils of the work. It is also a multi dimensional love story between he author, the characters, and of course the whales.No movie, no play, nothing can bring the lives, work, characters, and the wonderful creatures they hunt for a living, for the challenge, like this book does. Herman Mellville brings to life al these elements in a way that no one else can do, whether it be a movie, play, or series. This a challenging book that must be read and experienced, yes... This book is an experience that one must use his dictionary and his or her Brian to fully understand. Itis a challenge not for the faint of heart! This book is passion and poetry, and great writing! It is a book to be experienced that will fill you with emotion, sadness, and joy, and so much emotion ! So dear reader, get out our dictionary and challenge your self! This is one of my greatest reading challenges and I am loving it!.Score: 5/5

A classic for a reasonBe not afraid of this undertaking landlubber. Learn of the reasons that man has obsessions of revenge, obsessions with the sea, the economics of spermaceti, and a literary attempt at everything in-between. On your way to understanding the difference between the mizenmast and the skysail, sword-mats and eye splices, ambergris and brit, you will be thrilled with he hunt, the chase, and a 19th century review of everything known about the leviathans of the deep. What kind of genius was Melville--who could possibly create such a present day tome!? Maybe you. Read and be inspired. Shed a tear for the Parsee, the Captain of the Rachel, Starbuck, Stubb, the daring harpooners, and for Ishmael..Score: 5/5

Moby Dick, the odds compared evenlyFrom an analytical standpoint, Moby Dick is one of the most interesting books to read from its sheer complicity of the dialect, to the understandable and compassionate sailor, Ishmeal. Overall, Moby Dick is great, but long and tedious. Don't pick it for short term reading, but it's great for long term 😌👊.Score: 5/5

Love love love love it!!!!!What else can I say? I just love the fact that this precious novel that I've been trying to read since I first learn how to read and never could find it because everywhere I went, the book was sold out!! And I got soooo lucky I found this app!!! Now I can Cary my own library with me everywhere I go!!! And this is my dream book!!! Thanks god I found it!! Other thing I like about it is that is a copy of the original one. Same writing, same everything but from a different year. That's what makes it worth it!!!!.Score: 5/5

FishyIt smells like fish. But still very fascinating.Score: 5/5

Urghh..Before y’all yell at me for complaining about a mandatory English class read, I actually wanted to read this book. However, it was the most boring book I have ever read. And I mainly had to read the action chapters, not even the meandering informational chapters. Moby Dick is a classic and I do feel that people should at least read parts of this epic in order to have an understanding of it. That being said, I don’t recommend it for enjoyment. As a possible English major, I pray that I won’t have to read this again in college..Score: 1/5
