Description

2006 Audie® Award Winner - Solo Narration – Male

'Call me Ishmael'

Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write 'a mighty book about a mighty theme' and so he did. It is a story of one man's obsessive revenge-journey against the white whale, Moby-Dick, who injured him in an earlier meeting. Woven into the story of the last journey of the Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history and a mass of information about whaling through the ages.

This epic story, here presented in unabridged form, receives an equally epic reading from the outstanding American actor William Hootkins.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: William Hootkins, like a skilled conductor, creates a charmed reading that explodes with a symphony of contrasts. Oh, it starts easily enough with a certain playfulness of tone--Ishmael's surprise at Queequeg and the frothy bluster of Captains Peleg and Bildad. But the reader soon plunges into deeper seas. The almost childish voice of Ishmael, as if on a skylark, alternates with the later excitement of the chase. The enthusiastic study of the parts of the whale contrasts with the darker innuendos on God; the colorful excitability of Stubb butts up against the diabolic indifference of Ahab's Fedallah. Over all, the mad ruminations of Ahab himself, initially undervoiced, like a recurrent theme, build to a mounting crescendo. Hootkins, exercising perfect control, orchestrates all these voices into the symphonic whole that is Melville's dark masterpiece. P.E.F.

      • content: MOBY-DICK packs a lot of power into this abbreviated form. William Hootkins brings just the right combination of youthful zeal and ancient wisdom to this far-flung cast of characters. Hootkins is as comfortable as the adventure-seeking Ishmael, who makes the listener yearn for the high seas, as he is as the aboriginal Queequeg, who urges caution when not providing some much needed humor. Hootkins brings Captain Ahab to vivid life, giving voice to the character who has become the symbol of fanatical obsession as he hunts the giant white whale that devoured his leg. His quarry, the enigmatic Moby-Dick, is more a force of nature than a living thing. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
