DIFFERENT COVER!!

From the back cover:

'Moby Dick, first published in Britain in 1851, tells the story of Captain Ahab, a deranged whaling captain, and his obsessive voyage to find the great white whale that ripped off his leg.

The book is written in an extraordinary variety of styles, from sailors' slang to biblical prophesy and Shakespearian rant. It can be read as an exciting sea story, a sociological critique of American class and racial prejudices, a repository of information about whaling and a philosophical inquiry into the structure of good and evil. Ignored for many years after its first publication, Moby Dick is now recognized as one of the greatest novels of American literature.'

This is a paperback edition in the series Wordsworth Classics, published in 1992. The book was as we have seen :-) first published in 1851.

This book is #896 on the list of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.

I've wanted to read this book for years. Sooner or later I will. ;-)

I bought this book at a flea market at Grünerløkka elementary school in Oslo on Sunday, April 26th, 2009.

I read another copy of this book. It wasn't like I expected and I didn't really like it. A hell of a lot of irrelevant chitchat and way too little plot.

Reserved for release at the BookCrossing convention here in Oslo later this month as one of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.

Released 4 yrs ago (4/21/2017 UTC) at Bookcrossing Convention Oslo 2017 in St. Hanshaugen bydel, Oslo fylke Norway
