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.

A Classic?

Slightly disturbing tale. Although a good dramatisation, I didn't enjoy the story. The characters were interesting and the performance certainly portrayed them extremely well. The music added to the disturbing and haunting atmosphere. If you enjoy this book or style/genre , then you'll like this drama. But it wasn't for me.
