Looking for adventure and a new life, Ishmael, the story's narrator, decides to find work on a whaling boat. On arriving at the Massachusetts harbour to begin his search, the only bed available is already half occupied by a "cannibal" named Queequeg. Although Queequeg has limited English, a friendship forms and the two men sign up for work together aboard the Pequod under the infamous Captain Ahab. Consumed by an insane rage, Captain Ahab has but one purpose in life-- revenge on the great white whale who maimed and disfigured him.

The first quarter of the book sets out the characters, scenes, foreshadows some key symbols; the next half of the book is almost entirely about whales and whaling, some of it quite detailed, there is some plot development, and the symbolism and poetic qualities of the writing increase; the last quarter is intensely symbolic, and plot and characters and poetic prose build in a crescendo to a tragic and religious consummation. The narrator is excellent: gives different voices to the characters, and the tone and speed is perfectly modified to the exact place in the development of the narrative.

There is a downloadable item with the same artwork and the same description as this one, but the reader is not Anthony Heald. The reader is Adams Morgan. Whether that is good or bad news, you can best judge, but I think items should be accurately described in the library's catalog.
