The abridged downloadable audiobook edition of Herman Melville's epic tale of madness, obsession and society itself, Moby Dick. Read by the late actor William Hootkins.
Captain Ahab is an eerily compelling madman who focuses his distilled hatred and suffering - and that of generations before him - into the pursuit of a creature as vast, dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself. More than just a novel of adventure, this is a haunting and important social commentary populated with several of the most enduring characters in literature. Written with wonderfully redemptive humour, Moby Dick is a profound and timeless inquiry into character, faith and the nature of perception.
