Moby-Dick (Bantam Classic) by Herman Melville
Moby-Dick (Bantam Classic)

_sophh, April 12, 2008

I, as a young teenager (fourteen to be exact); had to read a couple of Classic Novels of English Literate for year 9 English. This is one of the few books I picked to read. I found this book confusing as the language used; comparable to Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' language used as an omnious writer. At the beginning of the novel of Moby Dick, I must admit it seemed very confusing to a mind of a teenager, but throughout the plot (with some help with plot summaries online ;)) I managed to get through the novel and understand the meaning of the book - that it was not just a novel about a mad man hunting down a whale but much more!
