The Maldive Shark

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Melville, best know for Moby Dick, has some of his work collected in this edition that was inspired by his years on sea. I think the best part of it was that I immediately got that he actually spent his time there. Descriptions of the life at sea seemed – as far as I could tell, accurate. The style however, I didn’t like so much, so I wouldn’t recommend it.

I’m conflicted as to whether I should try reading Moby Dick – I have heard opinions all over the spectrum and a little part of me wants to find out where I stand.
