Goodreads Monday is now hosted by Budget Tales Book Club. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
So sadly my Blogtober has been ruined because I missed Saturday and Sunday due to feeling too ill to blog. I’m still feeling rather rough but have made the effort to blog today and I hope to manage the rest of the month.
My chosen book for the week is another off my Classics Club list.
So Melville wrote of his masterpiece, one of the greatest works of imagination in literary history. In part, Moby-Dick is the story of an eerily compelling madman pursuing an unholy war against a creature as vast and dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself. But more than just a novel of adventure, more than an encyclopaedia of whaling lore and legend, the book can be seen as part of its author’s lifelong meditation on America. Written with wonderfully redemptive humour, Moby-Dick is also a profound inquiry into character, faith, and the nature of perception.
Please drop me a comment if you have taken part in Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.
