Moby Dick (Wordsworth Classics) (Wadsworth Collection) - Herman Melville I did try this once before, many years ago as a teenager, and couldn't finish it or appreciate it at all. This time round, I did like it, if I read it in very small doses. The first 110-odd pages were just great, and periodically throughout there were some really beautiful and interesting passages (poor, poor Pip!). That wasn't quite enough for me though, when there are such large stretches that don't feel like a novel at all.
