1 MOBY DICK

By Herman Melville, 1851 Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition published 2009

Captain Ahab and his fight against evil is a very engaging story. Ahab sacrifices all in his mission to defeat evil, leaving his family, not listening to his crew, and evolving into the role of the lonely hero. He knows he will not win, but he understands that this battle is the only way humankind can be saved. It is people like these who have forged our world – people who have gone a long way for an idea and sacrificed themselves in the process. How many of those exist in today's world?
