THE WHALE A Love Story

by | Read by Lloyd James

Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The circumstances that inspired the classic MOBY-DICK by Herman Melville are made wonderfully accessible in this audiobook. Lloyd James's lively narration pays close attention to detail throughout the exploration of Melville's relationship with fellow author Nathaniel Hawthorne. The energy that James projects takes what some may see as a dusty subject and makes it contemporary and intriguing regardless of one's knowledge of the original novel. James's strength lies in conversation; he has the skill to create distinct personalities through his development of character voices, accents, tones, and timing. There are moments when the narration stumbles, mainly as a result of delivering necessary background, but, overall, this story is both educational and engaging.
