  • "F. Murray Abraham stars in this full-cast dramatisation. Tired of life, Ishmael seeks adventure on the world's oceans and sets sail on the Pequod for a 3-year whaling voyage. Not until the ship is far out to sea, does the mysterious Captain Ahab appear on deck with an air of madness about him. In a stirring speech, he reveals his interest is not in commercial whaling but finding the White Whales known as Moby Dick who bit off his leg. First Mate Starbuck dissents, but he cannot compete with Ahab's charismatic leadership over the crew, and the ship embarks on its fatal mission."@en
  • "Melville's classic story of whaling, romance of unusual adventure and eccentric characters, and a drama of heroic conflict. In New Bedford, Connecticut in the 1800s, a group of seamen board the whaling ship Pequod, captained by Ahab. They know they're out to harpoon whales; what they don't realize is that Ahab once lost a leg to the magnificent white whale Moby Dick, and that he'll risk anything, including himself and every member of his crew, to get back at the animal that maimed him."@en

Ishmael, Queequeg, and Starbuck of the whaling ship Pequod watch on as the driven - and perhaps mad - Captain Ahab pushes ship and crew around Good Hope, and 'round the Horn, and 'round the Norway Maelstrom, and around perdition's flames in his doomed quest to hunt down the eponymous Great White Whale."@en

  • "This epic story of Captain Ahab's incredible quest for the elusive great whale is widely regarded as the Great American Novel. Herman Melville's writing of the tale is told by Ishmael through whose insight and conscience the narrative takes shape. Ishmael's longing for the sea is his sustenance. "Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; than, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can ... With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his swords; I quietly take to the ship." Ishmael's love of the ocean could very well have been the author's too."@en

  • "'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.

  • "PLAYAWAY. One of the great works of American literature, Moby Dick is the epic tale of one man's fight against a force of nature. The outcast youth Ishmael, succumbing to wanderlust during a dreary New England autumn, signs up for passage aboard a whaling ship. The Pequod sails under the command of the one-legged Captain Ahab, who has set himself on a monomaniacal quest to capture the cunning white whale that robbed him of his leg: Moby-Dick. Capturing life on the sea with robust realism, Melville details the adventures of the colorful crew aboard the ship as Ahab pursues his crusade of revenge, heedless of all cost. This masterfully symbolic drama of the conflict between man and his fate has a special intensity that listeners will not soon forget."

  • "Moby Dick is far more than a story of man hates whale, man pursues whale, whale destroys man, or of Captain Ahab's monomaniacal fixation on the great white whale, Moby Dick. Moby Dick is a tremendously ambitious novel that functions at once as a documentary of life at sea and a vast philosophical allegory of life in general. No sacred subject is spared in this bleak and scathing critique of the known world, as Melville satirizes by turns religious traditions, moral values, and the literary and political figures of the day. Yet the book is hardly abstract; it delineates memorable characters such as Ishmael, Queequeg, Starbuck, and Ahab, and has passages of action as riveting as The perfect storm. Melville's work is an enduring classic."@en
  • "Ishmael, a drifting sailor, unwittingly embarks on an adventure of a lifetime when he takes up duty on whaleship Pequod. The ship, captained by the vengeful and nearly-mad Captain Ahab, has taken to sea for one purpose only: to kill Moby Dick, a monstrous, man-killing whale."
  • "Moby ganz dick: Rund 150 Jahre alt ist die Geschichte vom legendären Kapitän Ahab und seinem Schiff, der Barke Pequod und der Suche nach dem weissen Wal Moby Dick. Durch Moby Dick hat Ahab bei einer früheren Jagd ein Bein verloren, jetzt will er sich an dem grossen weissen Wal rächen. Erzählt wird die Geschichte von Ismael, der mit seinem Freund Qeeqeug auf der Pequod angeheuert hat. Zur damaligen Zeit ist schon die Seereise zu den Fanggründen sehr langweilig gewesen und hat oftmals zwei Jahre oder länger gedauert. Von Nantucket aus, das an der Osküste bei Boston liegt, beginnt die abenteuerliche Reise über das Cap der guten Hoffnung zur Südspitze Afrikas, dann an Java und Indonesien vorbei zur Südsee. Dort trifft die Pequod auf Moby Dick und der lebensgefährliche Kampf zwischen Tier und Mensch beginnt. Melvilles Roman ist Weltliteratur und schildert farbig und spannend eine geschichtliche Epoche. Christian Brückners facettenreiche Stimme verleiht dem Klassiker viel Farbe und Leben, doch von Sprache und Aufbau her gesehen, ist er eher für Erwachsenen oder sehr interessierte Jugendliche geeignet. Ab 14 Jahren, ***, Jeanne Locher-Polier."
