Moby Dick by Herman Melville – 2 out of 5.
I listened to this one on audio book from the Library, trying to get in some classics. For anyone who doesn't know (where have you been) it's basically the tale of a bunch of guys, lead by the vengeful Captain Ahab, trying to kill a big white whale. This was read by Bill Bailey (no not that one) & has some nice “mood music” at key points throughout.
Published way back in 1851 the language is old fashioned & the setting exemplifies this.
