Moby Dick, or, The Whale

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The voyage of the whaling ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab, who leads his crew on a hunt for the great whale Moby Dick, reveals a profound meditation on society, nature, and the human struggle for meaning, happiness, and salvation. Often considered the epitome of American Romanticism, the novel is now considered one of the greatest novels in the English language.

Moby Dick

Spectacular! This is one of the books I avoided reading in high school and college, thinking it would be as dry as dust. Instead I come to find that it is a page-turner;I couldn't put it down, all 3,170 pages of it. Melville spins a suspenseful tale full of fascinating characters, rich in historical detail, and wrought with masterful craftsmanship. I highly recommend this book!


Definitely the best book I have ever read. Extremely hard to read though. There are lots of parts that are immensely hard to comprehend and detailed about whales and whaling, but the story pockets are the most exhilarating I have ever come across.

I Read It..

I first read this book in middle school by choice. Had a great time with it.
