I finally finished this book. I‘ve been reading it on and off for a while now. I thought the first half of the book was really good but the other half was more so-so. #mobydickbr

So whales are actually dragons - or is it the other way around? 🤣😂 #mobydickbr #1001books

TheSpineView Great list! 📚📚📚 2y
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Love the way you set this up! 2y
Read-y_Picker @TheAromaofBooks @TheSpineView thanks! I just wrote everything in quickly. Was a little hard to come up with 20, honestly. I‘m just so excited about the first 10 lol. 2y
TheAromaofBooks You are also always welcome to double up books/have them take more than one square. For instance, this month I have two rather hefty nonfiction books on my list, so each of them are taking up three blocks. It helps me feel like I'm making progress when I make them worth more than one of my fluff books! 😂 2y
Read-y_Picker @TheAromaofBooks ahhh yes! I did the for the #mobydickbr. Well, maybe next month! 2y

It‘s very late, I know. But I‘m happy to report that on the cusp of a new year, I finally finished reading this tome! Full disclosure, if not for the audiobook, I‘m pretty sure I would have DNFd it like the first time I tried to read it. This was a bucket-list read, and I‘m glad to have completed the task in 2020. ✅ My thanks to @Clwojick and #mobydickbr for helping me to see this through! 4/5⭐️

Finished a couple days late. So glad I finally read this. I love stories that take place on the sea. I felt bad for the whales but I thought it was a good story. Loved how detailed his descriptions were. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh My Gosh I‘m done. This is the first time I‘ve fully read an unabridged version. I grew up reading many diff children‘s book thou
As such. I was surprised how bland this book was in terms of getting the story across. Yes, there are fun parts. There are also parts where I was completely lost. just so much extra fluff. Let alone the story is practically told by dialogue. I can‘t get over how little page time Moby Dick got
