Moby Dick - at it's best

I was half way through reading Moby Dick and I knew this book was written to be read aloud. If you need a classic read, there is no better place to go than BJ Harrison! This book is masterfully read, BJ has the ability to create distinct voices for all the characters. The production of this book is superb.

My first audio book. Listening to this Classic that I missed during school years enables me to visualize Melville's wonderful metaphors and hyperboles. BJ's voice is compelling and I will try another of his Classic Tales.

Another outstanding work by BJ! I, like many, have been too intimidated to read Melville's classic. I'm still not sure I'd be able to read it, but BJ makes it quite easy to appreciate the language. Just as with Dickens, BJ has introduced me to some outstanding literature.
From Chris McFadyen of Mobile, Alabama on 3/18/2013.
One of BJ's best. I loved reading this favorite again.
