I’m doing my Moby Dick Mondays post today because I have a review going up tomorrow morning. Moby Dick Mondays is being hosted by Ti at Book Chatter.
I’ll admit to being intimidated by this book but to be very honest I’m enjoying it. I’m probably not really getting the literary or all the Biblical references being made but the story is keeping me reading and that’s all I care about.
We meet Ishmael who is looking to set out on a whaling boat. The first part is kind of dreary but still I wanted to keep reading. However when we got to the part where Ishmael meets Queequeg, a harpooner, I had trouble putting down my eReader. From what I gather he is one scary looking character and Ishmael is plain old scared of him. To top it off he has to share a room with this guy. What ensues with these two characters had me laughing. I’m looking forward to reading more about their interactions with each other.
I’m just now on Chapter 6 so I’m not sure if I’m where I should be or not as I’m reading on my eReader. I’m anxious though to fit in a few pages again tonight and see what’s going to happen next.
Check in next week for another update on my reading of Moby Dick.
