This book is hard work. I remember when it appeared on my reading list back on uni and then I actually picked up a copy, my first thought was ‘you’re having a laugh’. Really? A man chasing a whale who took his leg. No thank you. This is going to be so dull. I was so very wrong. Very wrong indeed. I remember that it took me a while to get into but once I got past the first hump, I was hooked (*see what I did there). It’s a gripping story with intense, vivid pose. Everything is there, obsession, revenge, perfection, desire, equality, ownership, supremacy and more. Moby Dick is one I recommend.
