Redburn: His First Voyage

Gelesen von James K. White

(4,537 Sterne; 68 Bewertungen)

Melville wrote of some of his earliest experiences at sea in the story of Wellingborough Redburn, a wet-behind-the-ears youngster whose head was filled with dreams of foreign travel and adventure. In Redburn, the protagonist enlists for a stint as a seaman aboard Highlander, a merchant ship running between New York and London. As with many of Melville's works, this one is as much about class and race as it is about the sea. (Summary by James K. White) (12 hr 36 min)

excellent into to tales of the sea and Herman Mellville in heneral

Narrator Made All the Difference

(5 Sterne)

While the book itself, in my opinion, is long and far too drawn out for what it needs to be; the narrator, James K. White, does the most amazing job of bringing some of even the most droll of moments to life. He does a fantastic job reading this massive tale, with changing accents and reading sections in full French and Latin. The book itself is nothing special, but the narrator has made this experience for me truly enjoyable and memorable. I will certainly recommend this audiobook solely based on the work of Mr. White.
