Publisher's Summary

Widely considered one of the great American novels, Herman Melville's masterpiece went largely unread during his lifetime and was out of print at the time of his death in 1891. Called the greatest book about the sea ever written by D.H. Lawrence, Moby Dick features detailed descriptions of whale hunting and whale oil extraction as well as beautiful, incisive writing on race, class, religion, art, and society. 

The story, loosely based on a real whaling shipwreck, features the unforgettable, vengeful Captain Ahab, who obsessively hunts a great white whale who bit his leg off below the knee.

The True Voice of Ishmael

I sampled a lot of performances on here before choosing this one. It's absolutely awesome. Cross's natural voice is so fitting for Ishmael, but he also does fantastic voices for every other character in the novel.

Slightly off topic, but I finished this about a month ago, and I've gotten in the habit of listening to it every night when I go to bed. It helps to distract me from my sleeping problems/recurring nightmares. My point is that the narration is so good and the content of the book is so dense and fantastic that I've listened to it every night for a month, and it hasn't gotten old.
