By Herman Melville
"An epic tale of the conflict between man and his fate. Captain Ahab's obsessive quest to destroy the great white whale that tore off his leg leads the "Pequod" and its crew to disaster."

It's taken me several years to get around to reading this one. I kept saying I'd read it, but I never did get around to it. But - last week - I finally got around to it. It's only taken me so many years to get around to reading it that I don't remember how many it's been... LOL! Anyway... I enjoyed it, but it's not for those who tend to prefer more modern forms of the English language.
