   Highly recommended
This was also written very well. It retained enough of the original to help promote the appreciation of literature without overdoing it for a child. My son is ADHD and says he does not like books that are illustrated in black and white. We read, however, this book before I put him to bed at night and he would beg me to read just one more chapter. It provides really good and recurring Segway into literature for children.
When I removed the sticker, it removed the blue and silver coloring from the book.
   Great book
The book arrived faster than expected, in new plastic wrap.
   The Leviathan of Great American Novels
This day Mark! Like Ishmael survives to tell the story of the monomaniacal madness, I now survive to confront Ahab with other ahabs of my own milieu.
   Narrator could stand to be more interesting.
Don 't understand why the announcement about the author and that the work is in the public domain and has to be repeated over and over again. In the beginning, once should be enough.
   How is this considered a classic?!?!
Of all the books I have read, I hate this most. I read a lot so that I can handle difficult prose, but this was insanity. At least 80% of the book consisted of educational details and useless segments that had no bearing on the story. If I wanted to learn the intricacies of whaling and all the pointless background, I would join a crew. The rest was an incredibly modern mix of flowery bullcrap, which I can describe only as odd old English with eight scoops of crazy. It was so hard to follow the speeches at times and as such, I am still not entirely certain what the full story is other than there was an evil whale bent on destruction and a deranged captain so determined to catch him that he has doomed his crew. I am glad that I never had to read this for an English class assignment because I would have no hair left for the stress of having to actually dissect this book enough to write a book report. Blugh : Horrible read :
   Good book
But a powerful story that informs the reader of the vicissitudes of whaling life, and gives a glimpse into the mind of an obsessed sea captain.
   Book it great, product is awful.
There was no charge for this, but the text runs together and was obviously just scanned with no review or editorial corrections. I would rather pay and get one that doesn't often run the words together in long lines of characters.
   Very Enjoyable
I probably read the Cliff Notes version in HS many years ago, but don 't remember much. I haven 't finished, but I like reading a few chapters before bed to take my mind off real events.
   I forgot why they made you read this in school.
Sadism is a plight of the. That is why they made you read it in school. Someone wanted to jump off a bridge. This book is mostly a loosely connected idiocy and a mostly meandering story about a man obsessed with a whale. This was supposed to be the textbook example of foreshadowing, but what he does is really hit you over the head with a sledgehammer to tell you things that will happen after 700 years of reading what color is the interior of a whale's head over... And over again. Most of the information contained in this book is just the author through his character, referencing things he read in other books. It is just a terrible epitome of thw and I hate myself for even trying.
