Eh, I give it a 5/10. Not brilliant, not boring, just sort of... neutral.
While many people shy away from books labeled "classics," (and trust me, having read some "classics," I understand) not all classics are /that/ kind of classics.
Moby-Dick is reasonably interesting, reasonably fast-paced and reasonably absorbing. Not one of my top ten picks of all time, but really? I've read worse.
In the book Moby Dick, the main character goes out looking for a whaling ship that he can join. He meets a new friend, Queenqueg, and together they join the ship "Peqoud".
This book is good. At times it's a little boring, but it's pretty good, overall. It's no mystery why it's a classic book, and why it's so well known. The thing I liked most about this book was how the author wrote. He wasn't like every other author who has ever written a story. He wrote uniquely.
