The Moby Dick Read-a-Long: Week One

One week down, six to go! I think for me, the hardest part was actually starting. Once I'd begun, the chapters seemed to fly by.

Fun fact: according to Vintage Books (and Charlotte, who is much better at paying attention to these things), Moby Dick was published in 1851 on this very day! I'd love to say I planned it this way on purpose, but... well, no. Still, pretty cool, right?

The first set of prompts for the read-a-long are below. As always, feel free to complete them on your blog, or put together your own post, or some combination of the two! Just don't forget to link up underneath.

1) So, first impressions. What do we think of the novel?
2) What about Ishamel's attitude to Queequeg? Is his tolerance ahead of its time or just a form of casual racism?
3) Do you think Ishmael should have heeded Elijah's spooky warning?
4) Captain Ahab! He's almost with us. What do you expect from him?
