One of the greatest novels in American Literature was “Moby-Dick.” Adventures, sophisticated writing, and humor: are what you would find in “Moby-Dick.” It’s an interesting novel that I would like to read even though it’s a long story. Some people may consider that reading a long book may be tedious; however, it can become interesting just like watching a movie that may be three hours long. Reading enhances a better understanding of words used in a story as well as reflecting what we read and relating our surroundings to the reading; in addition, have a rational concept.
“Moby-Dick,” a book that was written many years ago—a time in which we didn’t exist—can still be related to today’s world. For instance, Captain Ahab, a person who is powerful and seeks revenge, is a type of person that we still hear or read about in the news or books. There are people who hold remorse and later seek revenge regardless if another person is in harm’s way; and if a person—like Captain Ahab—is powerful he or she is able to get away with any negative situation. I also heard that this book contains symbolism and metaphors--forms of writing that makes a piece more interesting--a person’s mind is full of imagination and by writing we are able to create and imagine anything.
Moreover, as mentioned by Elizabeth Shultz, it’s a great book that we can enjoy reading with the sense of humor that is included in the beautiful piece by Herman Melville. I now know the book I will be reading for the holidays will be “Moby-Dick.”
