Ishmael soon learns that Ahab has one purpose on this voyage: to seek out Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg, which now drives Ahab to take revenge.

PLease, please, please give it a chance. It's written in the early 1800's and it sounds like it, but if you can relax and let the words flow over you, the story is absolutely breathtaking. Seriously. Give it a chance.

I really wanted to read this book because I saw the movie that told the story that the book was inspired by recently. I hope it's as good as I wished

Moby Dick is a MUST. Beautiful and it gets me captured in the story easily.

Is this the whole uncut uncensored version? 
                              You know am not gonna be judgmental;  am gonna keep an open mind and read this book (ok and partly because am curious to experience it's notoriety).
