Format: Paperback
Kids, think of this as an ice cream sundae with only the vanilla film and a speck of fudge on the inside of the sundae glass. It'll be enough for you to report on the significant parts of the sundae in great detail to Mr. English Teacher, but you'll have none of the feeling of having eaten an ice cream sundae, perhaps the finest food on Earth, if not the finest thing. Let's call this a loan. Use old Cliff to get through the test, but promise yourself that you'll at least pull up a chair to the book when you have the chance.

Format: Paperback
A little disappointed with the 2000 version. It dumbs down the material to a high school level. Perhaps I was disappointed because the 1966 Cliff Notes on Moby Dick by James L. Roberts was outstanding. I highly recommend that one if you can find it. Robert's Cliff Notes of this classic may very well be the best Cliff Notes edition of any classic work.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My version bears the same ISBN-10 code and all the blurb appears to be identical to the 2000 printing. Mine is copyright 2001, it was purchased at Borders for $9.99. First off, I wanted a companion to share Moby Dick with as I read it. Not having that, I reached out to Cliff's Notes. I am glad that I purchased it, and would do so again. However, it was disappointing in the level of scholarship. I won't do a detailed rebuttal of the whole product here, but will focus on the glossary sections and the text analysis.

The glossary sections are the weakest part of this book. They include words that are typically understood before one goes to college. Granted, vocabulary acquisition in the US is extremely variable. It can be variable among siblings in the same home. The glossary level seems to span elementary school level to perhaps high school.

The text analysis is about at a junior high or high school level for the most part. That said, this level would still be challenging for many students at local area community colleges. Again, there is such a variation in learning in this country.

For those reasons, I think this version of Cliff's Notes on Melville's Moby Dick, while a good addition to the home library, it is not a great addition. It can help younger or less experienced readers understand Moby Dick to a far better degree than most people in the United States. Considering the place that Moby Dick holds in American literature, anything that helps more people understand it, the better.

Easy to read and understand. Easy to follow. I feel like I got a good grasp of Melville's work. Very good for class.
