E-book

“Moby-Dick; or, The Whale” is an 1851 novel written by American author Herman Melville. The story is told by Ishmael, a sailor aboard a whaling ship captained by Ahab who embarks on an obsessive quest for revenge against a giant sperm whale that bit off his leg on a previous voyage. Originally receiving mixed reviews, “Moby Dick” was a failure when first published and was no longer in print when Melvillie died in 1891. Today, however, it is considered a “Great American Novel” known the world over. “Moby-Dick; or, The Whale” is highly recommended for all lovers of literature and deserves a place on every bookshelf. Herman Melville (1819–1891) was an American short story writer, poet, and novelist during the American Renaissance period. Other notable works by this author include: “Typee” (1846), "Bartleby, the Scrivener" (1853), and “The Encantadas” (1854). Read & Co. Classics is republishing this classic novel now complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
