Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Haunted by prophesies of his own death, Captain Ahab hunts the vast waters of the Pacific in search of the great white whale that has become his obsession. This towering novel has been sympathetically edited to a tenth of its original length, focussing on the exciting chase at the core of the book, as all but one of the Pequod's loyal crew are sacrificed to Ahab's great obsession.
