    "Moby Dick is one of the best naval books I have read in my lifetime. Not for everyone, but if you have read the original you will enjoy the illustrated version. "

    "One of the must-read books for 2018 according to Esquire is Moby Dick but I will go a bit further. It is a MUST read in any year if you haven't read it. I first read this in high school and fell in love with the story. I have read it three times in the 25 years that I have been out of school. I just love going back into the story because it's one of my all-time favorites. "

    "Moby Dick is a public domain work because of the age of the book. Anyone charging for it is ripping people off. The book is a classic and worthy of much praise."

    "This is a total classic. Although not the best, but it's a good story for free. Also so many people have read it so there's a conservation for small talk. "

    "Moby Dick is widely considered an American classic. It's a book rich in symbolism, with many hidden or obscured elements that might not be apparent on the first read. The book itself is rather good, though maybe just a bit overrated, I would say. Apparently it is offered for free here, though it seems to me like it least costs a token sum, from what I can see. There's probably somewhere to obtain it for free. "

    "Maybe this book is good for some people but I didn't like it at all. It literally put me to sleep. I found that the writing itself was needlessly complicated and wordy and I couldn't relate to any of the characters at all. This book may be regarded as a classic, but there are so many other, better novels out there than to waste your time on this one."

    "Moby Dick is a classic tale. However, I don't think it would fit for recommended for men by Esquire. Moby Dick is more of a college student type of book."

    "A classic by Herman Melville, not many can get thru school without having to read Moby Dick. The story of a ship captain set for revenge against the white whale named Moby Dick. The whale has on a previous voyage destroyed Ahab's ship and severed his leg at the knee."

    "Moby Dick is simply a classic and one of the most read books in America. While the book provides the minutiae of whaling in the first few chapters, you would be ill-prepared for the later chase which builds upon that knowledge to present a faster-paced account. Overall it builds a depth to the narrative that absorbs all the more intently as the book progresses."

    "I read this in high school english class and it became such a favorite of mine that I've re-read it multiple times since. The story is relatable on all levels; every person has that "whale" that they're chasing in life, and I think that accounts for at least a portion of its widespread appeal. Truly a story for all ages. "

    "One of the best books that inspired Black Sails TV series would definitely be Moby Dick. It is a classic tale about a journey on a ship that follows a fascinating story. I really enjoyed Moby Dick and fondly remember reading the book when I was younger and I would really recommend it if you're looking for something similar. "

    "Moby Dick is considered a classic in literature. It can be a long read for someone who isn't open to the message. It shows us that while our dreams may be elusive, they can be all-consuming if you want them badly enough. It is a great story to be read if you take the time to find the message."

    "Moby Dick is one of the most famous novels in American history. It should be required reading for all. It is the tale of an epic quest to find the whale that ruined captain Ahab's life. This audio book makes for a thrilling experience."

    "I am so glad I finally got around to reading this classic novel. Not only is it an immensely entertaining story, but I now understand modern day references to it that used to go right over my head."

    "Moby Dick may seem daunting at the outset - a huge, rather difficult read - but it is an amazing novel. Stick with it and you will be truly rewarded with a riviting, deeply psychological, and suprising story. Yes this IS a best classic book to read during the summer! "
