TYPEE A Peep at Polynesian Life

by | Read by George Guidall

Classics • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1846

You probably heard of TYPEE when studying Melville in high school or college. You learned that it's a minor work and haven't thought of it since. But TYPEE was Melville's most popular book during his lifetime. It's a great adventure story, told by a master storyteller, and gives the feeling of having been lived firsthand. (For the most part, it was.) George Guidall provides a spirited reading of the plot-driven passages and enlivens expositional chapters (for example, Melville's extensive anthropological observations). Guidall's gift for wry humor and the arch comment serves him (and listeners) well throughout. T.J.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
