A master story teller. I often wonder how much is of his own experience as he manages to take you on the finest journeys all over the world.

It was not what i was expecting, but it did take care of reading material for a vacation. There are some really good parts there are others that you can skip.

I wanted to finish the book even though it was a little cumbersome in spots. Herman Melville was a great story teller. The story had just enough action, geographical interest and a lot of stuff in such a short book.
