"At first glimpse, it?s the story of the obsessed Captain Ahab, obsessed with revenge against the enormous white sperm whale that wrecked his earlier ship and took off his leg. A closer reading unearths deeper symbolism and a discussion about the very existence of God. Aside from its impressive scope, the novel provides a fascinating window into the long-gone world of 19th century whaling."
