Moby Dick (1851) by Herman Melville
Publisher: Vintage Books
When Ishmael sets sail on the whale-ship Pequod one cold Christmas Day, he has no idea of the horrors awaiting him out on the vast and merciless ocean. The ship’s strange captain, Ahab, is obsessed with hunting down the famous white whale, Moby Dick, and will stop at nothing on his quest to annihilate his nemesis.
I haven’t read this since fourth grade. I’m betting this will be a very different experience as an adult. For some reason I felt like I should switch back to Real Paper Books for it. My paper book choices are very different than my e-book choices.
