After writing IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, an entertaining and detailed account of the real story of Moby-Dick, one might be forgiven for comparing author Philbrick to Captain Ahab in his zeal. Fortunately, Philbrick narrates this audio himself—with such charm and sweetness that he soon eliminates the fear that one is headed for “Whiteness of the Whale” fanaticism. His love for the novel and the sincerity of his evangelistic passion come through so clearly that one is soon avidly engaged in parts one may have hurried through in school. Philbrick makes a convincing case for having another go with his straightforward language and appealing tone. D.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
