The Moby Dick Read-a-Long: Week Two

We're a third of the way done already, can you believe it!? Only four weeks to go, and from what I've heard, the book gets more action-packed and less... rambly towards the end. Or so I hope.

Here are this week's prompts:

1) We've met Captain Ahab now. What do you think of him? Did he meet your expectations? Who would you cast to play him in a movie?
2) Some chapters seem to focus on action and attempt to move the story along, whilst others seem to ponder the concept of a whaling and life. Do you find one type easier to follow than the other?
3) Keeping in mind everything we've learned about whaling this week, has it changed your views on it at all?
4) Why do you think Herman Melville suddenly branches off into lectures about how acceptable/difficult/clean whaling is? 
5) Do the scientific misconceptions bother you at all? i.e. that whales are fishes etc. 

Don't forget to link up below!
