    Where the White Whale, yo Ah, my first DBR And possibly my last, as this could be a complete shit show Approaching a review of Moby Dick in a state of sobriety just wasn t cutting it, though So let s raise our glasses to Option B, yeah I fucking love this book It took me eight hundred years to read it, but it was so, so worth it Melville s writing is impeccable The parallels he draws, even when he s seemingly pulling them out of his ass, which I swear to God he s doing, because who can f

    So, Herman Melville s Moby Dick is supposed by many to be the greatest Engligh language novel ever written, especially among those written in the Romantic tradition Meh.It s not that I don t get that there s a TON of complexity, subtlety, and depth to this book about a mad captain s quest for revenge against a great white whale And on the surface it s even a pretty darn good adventure story And, honestly, Melville s prose is flowing, elegant, and as beautiful as any writing can possibly be I

    i tried.Both ends of the line are exposed the lower end terminating in an eye splice or loop coming up from the bottom against the side of the tub, and hanging over its edge completely disengaged from everything This arrangement of the lower end is necessary on two accounts First In order to facilitate the fastening to it of an additional line from a neighboring boat, in case the stricken whale should sound so deep as to threaten to carry off the entire line originally attached to the harpoo

    I hate this book so much It is impossible to ignore the literary merit of this work though it is, after all, a piece of innovative literature Melville broke narrative expectations when he shed the narrator Ishmael and burst through with his infinite knowledge of all things whale It was most creative, but then he pounded the reader with his knowledge of the whaling industry that could, quite literally, fill several textbooks This made the book so incredibly dull I m not being na ve towards

    There once was a grouchy alpha whale named Moby Dick who rather than being agreeably shorn of his blubber and having lumpy sperm scooped out of his cranium like cottage cheese chose life Unlike so many shiftless, layabout sea mammals of his generation, Moby Dick did not go gentle into that good night This whale, in short, was not a back of the bus rider He assailed a shallow, consumerist society, which objectified him only as lamp oil or corset ribbing, with the persuasive argument of h

    Everyone eventually comes across the White Whale in one form or another The trick is to not keep its attention for too long Avast Dost thee have a five spot thou can see thyself parting ways with No Jibberjab up the wigwam Cuisinart the poopdeck What s that ye say Thou canst not make heads nor tails of what I sayeth Here then Let me take this pipe outta my mouth and stop menacing you with this harpoon Better Good.Huh No, no Ho ho I wasn t asking for money I was asking if you ve

    I was that precocious brat who first read the whale esque sized Moby Dick at the age of nine Why I had my reasons, and they were twofold 1 I was in the middle of my I love Jacques Cousteau phase, and this book had a picture of a whale on the cover.

    This was the first CLASSIC I ever read strictly for pleasureAnd I really, really enjoyed itfor the most part see below While recognizing its hallowed place among the canon of world literature, I was still surprised, pleasantly so, at how captivated I became with the novel from the very beginning Instantly, I loved the character of Ishmael and was amused by his unconventional introduction in the novel Forced for economic reasons to share a room at in inn with a complete stranger, descr
