It's not quite as bad as Moby Dick, but getting there.

There were some real crappy "classics," you know? Just about anything by Conrad, Moby Dick, Scarlet Letter - they all sucked. It's a good thing "the classics" also includes such awesome books as Don Quixote and Huck Finn and The Count of Monte Cristo.

Is The Lord of the Rings old enough to be a "classic" yet?

I never really got into Hawthorne either, but how can you say Moby Dick sucked? That is not only a GREAT novel, but possibly the most significant piece of American literature (I'd say Moby Dick and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn are #1 and #2, but I'm not sure in which order).

Well, if The 911 Commission Report is considered a classic... :-D

By the way, for both those who like and those who dislike Moby Dick, Gideon Defoe's The Pirates! in an Adventure with Whaling might be worth a look. Funny stuff, in a Python/Blackadder-ish way.

Forget Ishmael. Call me unimpressed. I just got totally bogged down by Melville's treatise on 18th-century whaling techniques. I was 1/3 to halfway through the book and I had yet to understand why I cared about any of the characters, and I just gave up trying.

For those of you who have read the whole Moby D, what was it that made this book "great?"

I don't read books, but I might listen to them.

Man...I downloaded a few of these and just tried to listen to one. I didn't realize they were narrated by a fake, digital voice. There is absolutely no way I'll be able to listen to these. But thanks for posting anyway.
