Lately, from sites such as Project Gutenburg, manybooks.net, and feedbooks.com, I've been downloading a lot of free classics in nearly all the genres on my computer such as the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Otis Adelbert Kline, Lord Dunsany, Algernon Blackwood, Clark Ashton Smith, Rafael Sabatini, Robert Louis Stevenson, Wilkie Collins, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Max Brand, Zane Grey, and many others. I was wondering, is Melville's classic Moby Dick worth the read? I've heard some call it very boring and dry, but most of those were from the teenage crowd. I have to say the idea of an insane captain relentlessly and obsessively pursuing a whale until it drives him clear out of his gourd intrigues me somewhat. So what does everyone here think who has read it?
