I've been waiting for your review of Moby Dick ever since I found your website a few weeks back...well, shoot, I enjoyed your review so much now I'll have to read it again...for the fifth time (I think, I've lost track!) Moby Dick is one of my all time favorites that makes the "If you're stranded on an island..." it's definitely in the top five books that I'd want with me...I read it for the first time in high school, and have gone back to it on multiple occasions, sometimes I'll open it to a random page and just start reading...it's an old friend. Thanks for sharing your review!


Nice review - too many people bash this wonderful book (I had to read it in a week in college, but I'd like to take the time to read it the way you did!).


Thanks, Laura and Elizabeth! I look forward to becoming a repeat reader of the novel ... and perhaps having a different kind of adventure with it.

Although many people don't like this book, I agree with elizabeth that this is a great review.

your website is simply a waste.............
visiting this website was my worst experience ever ................

I loved this book! I agree it's wildly funny. There were times when I read it in public, I'd find myself giggling, and wondered if anyone around me could tell what fireworks were going off in my head.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
