Product description

Review

"A masterpiece" (Guardian)

"A great book...a deep great artist" (D.H. Lawrence)

"A wonderful delight" (Nathaniel Philbrick)

"Moby Dick is my favourite novel, bar none. It works on so many levels. It taught me that you can have a top layer of narrative - like the seafaring story - and then below that all those wonderful, rich, symbolic things going on" (Clive Barker)

"To convey an adequate idea of a book of such various merits as that which the author of Typee and Omoo has here placed before the reading public, is impossible in the scope of a review. High philosophy, liberal feeling, abstruse metaphysics popularly phrased, soaring speculation, a style as many-coloured as the theme, yet always good, and often admirable; fertile fancy, ingenious construction, playful learning, and an unusual power of enchaining the interest, and rising to the verge of the sublime, without overpassing that narrow boundary which plunges the ambitious penman into the ridiculous; all these are possessed by Herman Melville, and exemplified in these volumes" (London Morning Advertiser, October 24 1851) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

On board the whaling ship Pequod a crew of wise men and fools, renegades and seeming phantoms is hurled through treacherous seas by crazed Captain Ahab, a man hell-bent on hunting down the mythic White Whale. Melville transforms the little world of the whale ship into a crucible where mankind's fears, faith and frailties are pitted against a relentless fate. Teeming with ideas and imagery, and with its extraordinary intensity sustained by mischievous irony and moments of exquisite beauty, Moby-Dick is both a great American epic and a profoundly imaginative literary creation.

This Macmillan Collector's Library edition features an afterword by Nigel Cliff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying sticker!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 November 2018
Lovely looking book, however there was a price sticker on the back and unfortunately it has left a mark on the book, peeling off some of the pattern. I’m annoyed because I ordered 3 of these style books, and the other came with a card around the book with the price on, and I wish this could have been the same for all the books as the sticker has now ruined it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A horror story that is online shopping.
Reviewed in India on 13 October 2018
You patiently wait for days to pass by and check whether the prices have dropped or not. Then one fine day, the Gods have smiled upon you, and your wish has been answered. You order the product in an instant before it runs out of stock. But the horrors of online shopping hit you like a train, waking you up from the dream you've been living in. The book that you've been longing to read has come to your house, but sadly, in damaged condition. For a reader, broken book spine and foxing is the last straw.
