Ahab's Wife: Or, the Star-Gazer: A Novel by Sena Jeter Naslund
Ahab's Wife: Or, the Star-Gazer: A Novel

joycechip, October 31, 2008

This book is going to become an epic classic and is based on the Moby Dick story but, from and including a woman's point of view. It is by far the best book I've ever read! I layed awake in bed at night wondering what was going to happen next...and had to get up and read it further. It is a book I will want to keep and reread again. It's a book to be discussed in a group. The author is a genius at prose, taking you on a quest, making you feel and live the story with the storyteller. Tis book should be required reading for young adults. Just the best read available.
