2006 Audie® Award Winner - Solo Narration – Male

'Call me Ishmael'

Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write 'a mighty book about a mighty theme' and so he did. It is a story of one man's obsessive revenge-journey against the white whale, Moby-Dick, who injured him in an earlier meeting. Woven into the story of the last journey of the Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history and a mass of information about whaling through the ages.

This epic story, here presented in unabridged form, receives an equally epic reading from the outstanding American actor William Hootkins.
