Tuesday Teaser 4

I almost forgot! Wow! *laugh* So sorry!

Without furthur ado, here's this week's teaser:

"It was now quite plain that he must be some abominable savage or other shipped aboard of a whaleman in the South Seas, and so landed in this Christian country. I quaked to think of it."  Moby Dick, by Herman Melville.

I absolutely adore the way it is written (and in fact, I have to admit that saying I "adore" its writing style is a completely inappropriate adverb, but still, true), and have yet to finish it; I keep forgetting. I wish I'd read it when I was a child; I think the sense of adventure would have appealed very much to me.

And I'm spent!
