F. Murray Abraham

‘Moby Dick’ was first published in Britain as 'The Whale' in 1851. It is an extraordinary book, made up of 135 chapters, all written in a variety of styles - from sailors’ slang to biblical prophecy and Shakespearian rant. 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.

I've always loved Moby Dick. Having not read the book or seen the movie in years I decided to join Audio Books and re-live the classics all over again and the first book, Moby Dick did not disappoint. The dramatic reading and the passion in the voices made me feel as if I was there with Ahab.
