As I have mentioned numerous times on the blog, Moby Dick is one of my all time favorite books. I have not only read the book, by I enjoy reading books about this book too.
Back to the movie preview, watching it made me think of Moby Dick, which then made me think of other books I have read because of their Moby Dick frame. And the first one to leap to my mind was Ahab’s Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund which I read back in 2011.
I can pretty much guarantee that I am not the only person who will have Moby Dick on the mind as this Ron Howard film begins to be advertised more and more.
So to help fill that “while you wait” gap for people who want Philbrick’s book, here is my original review of Ahab’s Wife. It’s a backlist gem.
