Except whale hunting was, for a time, an important source of fuel, rather than simply an aesthetic commodity.

Game looks kind of interesting to me. Maybe, if the price is right.

While I also have my concerns about whale hunting, this looks like an interesting game.

Will have another look once it is available.

A sequel to Moby Dick? I hope its crazy - its the craziest book I read.

You may think you know the story, but the main story is just that. Melville is all over the place with his fiction, non-fiction, philosophy, cartography, and whale anatomy.

For example, did you know
  • Smoking is good for you
  • Whales will never be extinct
  • Better a sober cannibal than a drunk Christian

I found the middle part of the book, where Melville essentially writes a small encyclopedia of aquatic wildlife, a real slog. Outside of that, it was a good read.

I found it very sad that Melville so desperately loved sperm whales, yet convinced himself they would avoid being hunted to extinction, an extinction in which he personally participated.
