Publisher's Summary

In the dark depths of the bottomless sea dwells a white demon, taking shape as the Leviathan known as Moby Dick. One year ago, the malefic brute crunched off the leg of the ungodly Captain Ahab, who now swears revenge. So runs the epic tale of Moby Dick, the supernal work of Herman Melville. In this unabridged production, you will walk with the young sailor Ishmael through the fires of life on a whaling vessel. Each character is brought to life by the narration of B.J. Harrison, who also turns Melville’s sometimes over-potent expository information into an easily digestible treat.

Any additional comments?

This book is packed with significance and multiple layers. Everyone knows that. But what I didn't know is that it's actually a very easy read, full of light and humorous moments and fantastic adventure. Can't speak for the multiple other narrators whose versions are also available on Audible, but this reader, BJ Harrison, is terrific. Here's another thing: I just finished Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch" Stylistically speaking, I'm sure she was influenced by Moby Dick.
