Book Review: Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Bookcover-1In my experience, Moby Dick (1851) by Herman Melville cannot be read outside of academia, with a professor to walk you through the meaning of the text. Or at least, I’m biased because this was my experience as a junior in high school! And it was wonderful!! This is the classic tale of a whale hunt by monomaniacal Captain Ahab, narrated by our castaway, “Ishmael.” My favorite character, of course, was the studly Queequeg. A fun and fascinating class experience dissecting and interpreting this unusual text.
