And a great book to start re-reading.
So we are starting to tackle what is arguably the greatest American novel of all time, Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Moby Dick endures because it is a great story well and fully told, and built into its foundation are some of the most enduring and profound themes of our existence.
But it is not a book for wimps. Really, it isn't.
But it is a book for anyone who likes adventure, who has dreamed of doing something bigger and cooler than ever before, who are willing to set out on a personal odyssey into the creative unknown, and who are curious about why and how people become like they are.
Like Walden, Moby Dick was written in the mid-1800's. The language can be "harder to get" than reading "The Bleacher Report." You may need to use your dictionary more than usual, but the story line is pretty straightforward and imaginative.
...and you will never ever, ever, regret the time you put into reading Moby Dick!
