Publisher's Summary

Ishmael, the narrator, tells of the adventures of Captain Ahab in his relentless quest to seek revenge on the white whale that bit off his leg. Full of allegory and symbolism, Moby Dick is an epic tragedy of tremendous dramatic power and narrative drive. This large-scale adaptation, recorded in America, skilfully reproduces the unique mixture of adventure, myth, history, and philosophy in Melville's epic tale.

    Any additional comments?

    The greatest story ever told, told by the greatest storytellers in the business. BBC drama bring to life the classic tale of madman meeting whale in this epic addition to their drama collection. I would recommend this book to young and old, it's exciting and BBC drama studios did it justice, with whale sounds and eery music injected throughout the listen to add to the atmosphere.

    "An enjoyable adaption of a great story."

    This magnificent story is very well told here, well cast and nicely acted. It manages to economically capture the atmosphere of the original book whilst moving the plot along briskly. The sound quality could be better but overall this is a very entertaining listen, and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
