Moby Dick, or the Whale

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Herman Melville

Narrated By: Stewart Wills

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: August 2016

Duration: 24 hours 41 minutes


Few things, even in literature, can really be said to be unique - but Moby Dick is truly unlike anything written before or since. The novel is nominally about the obsessive hunt by the crazed Captain Ahab of the book's eponymous white whale. But interspersed in that story are digressions, paradoxes, philosophical riffs on whaling and life, and a display of techniques so advanced for its time that some have referred to the 1851 Moby Dick as the first "modern" novel. (Summary by Stewart Wills)

    I spent 24 hour listening to rambling of what white is or what a whale was or what a whale was supposed to look like in drawings. For three hours of actually the actual hunting of Moby Dick. I'm not sure what about this makes it a classic but it was a colossal waste of my time.
