Sarah Miller imagines a series of positive book reviews: http://nyr.kr/IHXYjJ

“Moby-Dick,” by Herman Melville
“The characters are as rollicking and fun as the ocean setting. The narrator, Ishmael, is just a really good guy, while Ahab, a ship’s captain, allows us to remember that anger happens when we don’t process our sadness, which is every bit as precious as our joy. Ultimately, ‘Moby-Dick’ is a gripping story about a diverse group of men putting aside their differences to create lifelong friendships on a hand-crafted sailboat.”
