Summary
"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." --Amazon.com
