Moby Dick

By Herman Mellville
I read this because the gal I tutor had to read it, and I wanted to help her out.
Oh, the pain. Note to self: next time, read the Cliffs Notes.
It wasn’t as horrid as I’d been given to expect, but for every interesting chapter of plot, there are at least five chapters of “omg, look how much whale research I did!” showing off. I usually like tangents and whatnot, but Melville manages to make them dull as mud. Blech.
Book 16 in 2007.
