A rich, complex, highly symbolic narrative that explores the deepest reaches of our moral and metaphysical dilemma through the extraordinary tale of Captain Ahab's insane quest for the great white whale. One of America's greatest novels.
Ok, anyone not living under a rock, in a cave or with monks on a mountain top knows this is a book about a guy hunting the whale who took his leg. Or what I consider obsession. One man’s obsession to be precise and how he got himself and a bunch of guys killed because of it. Because he couldn’t take Elsa’s advice and let it go.
I’ll be the first to admit I couldn’t even read the novel. It bored me to tears when I tried. I ended up listening to the audio instead. Anyway, this graphic novel breaks that big ass book down quite nicely. The artwork is not my cup of tea, but it looks kinda old-timey as does the lettering. All-in-all not a bad adaptation.
