Why Read Moby-Dick?

My GoodReads rating: 4 stars

Philbrick loves the hell out of Moby Dick. In "Why Read Moby-Dick?", he lovingly traces the contours of the plot, the major themes, and - most interestingly - the context/story behind the writing of this great American classic. Very short, but it accomplishes its mission - Moby Dick is going on to my reading list!

And remember... sometimes a whale is just a whale.
