A public house in Pittsfield, Mass. I love when he appears, dead, bound to the whale, and makes that sign to his men to follow him and also Starbuck, who seemed the most "quiet" is captured by his captain's obsession. Normally, a novel about an obsessed man trying to harpoon a terrifying monster would be right in my wheelhouse. Is it about obsession? The annotations and illustrations really add to your reading enjoyment of this classic novel.
You do wonder now and then why the movie isn't even better.
Book Review: Moby Dick
Look, it's not that I don't get it. The rest of the cast is too large to get into. Since then I have not spent one week without a short something being written. I would get through the first few chapters all right. Do thou, too, live in this world without being part of it. It is a mistake to go in asking 'what does this represent', it does the book a disservice. If only a better, older actor had been cast like Fredric March, Spencer Tracy or even the director John Huston himself.
