The Best Sea Story Ever Written
|The Grand Daddy of Nautical Literature|
Moby Dick is a literary masterpiece and perhaps the best sea stories ever written. Anyone serious about nautical literature simply must read this monster of a novel. Overflowing with all the elements that make up a great sea story, Moby Dick sets the standard for writing about sailors, ocean travel and making a living at sea. More than this, Moby Dick is a novel about being alive and searching for the meaning of it all.
In Melville's masterpiece, the reader finds all the things that make going to sea in ships so amazing, and that includes deep friendships, monumental challenges, profound mysteries, youthful adventure, technology, the grandeur of nature, heartbreaking tragedy, disaster, salvation and earning a livelihood.
Rather than try to come up with any more catchy lines of praise, here's a quote from Moby Dick that says it all: "He [Captain Ahab] piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it."
