SYNOPSIS

It was an obsession that would destroy them all… On a cold December night, a young man called Ishmael rents a room at an inn in Massachusetts. He has come from Manhattan to the north-east of America to sign up for a whaling expedition. Later that same night, as Ishmael is sleeping, a heavily tattooed man wielding a blade enters his room. This chance meeting is just the start of what will become the greatest adventure of his life. The next day, Ishmael joins the crew of a ship known as the Pequod. He is approached by a man dressed in rags who warns him that, if he sails under the command of Captain Ahab, he may never come back. Undaunted, Ishmael returns early the next morning and leaves for the high seas. For the crew of the Pequod, their voyage is one of monetary gain. For Captain Ahab, however, it is a mission driven by hatred, revenge, and his growing obsession with the greatest creature of the sea.

5/5 stars

it's great!

:
i admit to being a little obsessed with "moby dick". it is considered the greatest american novel for a reason. this comic, with its animation feature, is just wonderful-it allows you to be read to in a way...... the panels, and transitions between drawings are varied, and well done. it isn't as "dumbed down" as i thought it might be, but uses words and sentences right from the book. that in itself is great. and the colors/illustrations are just gorgeous on the ipad. a real winner. a bit steep in price, but i feel very happy i bought it.

attention animators: start on your next project (please??): "jonathan strange and mr. norrell" by susanna clarke. thanks!!

5/5 stars

Prose and illustrations very good + interactivity = a nice deal!

:
This is a very decent digital book for your second, third or fourth grader. Even our fifth grader enjoyed it. The illustrations are detailed and superbly-colored. The prose is well written and encapsulates a brief but competent abridgement of Moby Dick. Best of all is the mild interactivity. What is the point of a digital book without interactivity? This app is a fine showcase for the iPad and a welcome addition to our library of juvenilia. Of course, as with all condensed books, there is no substitute for the original. But for youngsters this is a good introduction.
