Moby Dick

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Herman Melville

Narrated By: Stewart Wills

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: March 2007

Duration: 24 hours 42 minutes

Summary:

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.

Genres:

  • Rosemary C

    Didn’t enjoy it. Too many insertments about whales, and whaling. Lost the story theme so many times gave up.

  • Nathan Licciardo

    Well narrated. The book whilst a classic, is very wordy.

  • vernon lowpasser

    Very well presented. A great entertaining journey of a classic novel.

  • Colby Campbell

    I enjoyed the reader and the book. looking forward to listening to more.
