“Surprisingly funny, wholly engaging, and deserving of its lofty rank among the canon of American literature; I enjoyed every page of Melville's Moby-Dick.” Amanda

“I may re-read it in a few years just to get back onto the Pequod and feel that cool salt sea air brush against my face and live among the crew again. I recommend this great novel to EVERYONE!” Martha

“But “Moby-Dick” is not a novel. It’s barely a book at all. It’s more an act of transference, of ideas and evocations hung around the vast and unknowable shape of the whale, an extended musing on the strange meeting of human history and natural history. It is, above all, a sui-generis creation, one that came into the world as an unnatural, immaculate conception.” Philip Hoare, The New Yorker

“We all know the story: man seeks unattainable object of deranged desire and causes general devastation in the process. This is the novel of restless human drive: to perfection, to mastery, to madness, to write a novel in the first place, to aim for something other than "a damp, drizzly November in the soul".” Chris Ross, The Guardian

MOBY DICK is one of the most exciting and profound novels of all time. Presented in a beautiful edition to mark the 160th anniversary of this classic, specially designed for kindle, this is Melville’s masterpiece of obsession which will stay with you forever.
